Searching the scriptures

Photos taken of Catholic Priest and Jewish Woman in Jerusalem in May 2010
"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life:
and they are they which testify of me."
John 5: 39
In addition to taking pictures of the sites and locations in Israel, I tried to take pictures of the people. Not easy to do without feeling that you are invading their privacy and without asking for their permission. Jerusalem is a sacred city for the 3 dominant religions in the world. Christianity, Muslim, and Judiasm. All 3 religions have their individual scriptures: The Bible, The Torah, and Quran.
Most of us upon this earth are searching for truth, many do not know where to find it. Many feel that they have God's word and don't need anymore.. the very idea that God can or has spoken .. (and will) to others is disturbing. It requires us to learn more, and may require us to change. But new information from God should always be welcomed. It should be exciting.. even if it requires to change.
We as Latter Day Saints have the Book of Mormon. Many of us still don't fully understand this additional testament of Christ. Should other scripture come forth.. how will we react?
