    Day 9 – Wednesday, May 15, 2019

    May 15 in Palestine ⋅ ☀️ 81 °F

    Golgotha, Way of Suffering, Garden Tomb, Pool of Bethesda, Gethsemane, Church of All Nations

    We start out the day is the area of Golgotha (place of the skull) and the Garden Tomb, where we celebrate the resurrection with communion and a time of praise. From here we will also be able to see the Pool of Bethesda, Stephen's Gate and St. Ann’s Church. While walking along the Via Dolorosa, we are reminded of His way of suffering along with a visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Our guide will explain the differing opinions on the route that Christ was led. The actual place of crucifixion and burial is a very interesting study. Next we walk where Jesus walked, beginning with a panoramic view of the city, Mount Moriah and the Dome of the Rock from atop the Mount of Olives and then the Garden of Gethsemane. How many have wished to be whisked back in time to get a glimpse of our Lord or hear His voice if only for a moment? To walk between the ancient olive trees, read the scriptures of Jesus' prayer and take time for personal reflection is important here.Read more
