Over the past three days we have toured Jerusalem. We toured the old city. We went on the Via Dolorosa (The way of the cross), the traditional path taken by Jesus to his death. The path winds through the city ending at the Church of The Holy Sepulcher the traditional place of Jesus’ death and burial. I’m including some photos (below) of sites throughout the Church:
We also went to the Western Wall to share prayers. Katie, Carrie and I spent one day on our own at the Mahane Yehudi Market where we shopped and enjoyed lunch.
On the last full day in Jerusalem we visited the Dome of the Rock (a shared holy site by Islam, Christianity, and Judaism), Ruins and the Teaching Steps, the Church of St. John the Baptist, the Holocaust Museum and the Garden Tomb. It was really full but wonderful day.
Hope this post finds you well. Now, we’re off to Jordan!
