Description

The first site in this booklet is the Chapel of Ascension, the holiest site for Christians on the Mount of Olives. It is here that Jesus spent his last week, and I also wrote about two more important churches located nearby: Dominus Flevit, where Jesus saw the temple, predicted its destruction and cried over it, and Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed the night before his crucifixion. From there the tour continues to the Old City through the Lions’ Gate and along the Via Dolorosa, the route that Jesus took from the place he was judged by Pontius Pilate to where he was crucified, on which spot the Church of the Holy Sepulchre stands today. Another chapter is dedicated to the Wailing Wall and the Temple Mount. I also added information about less well-known sites, such as a 2,000-year-old underground pool and the Syriac Chapel in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
