ABOUT THE EIGHT SESSION - AS THEY APPROACHED JERUSALEM: JESUS' ROYAL ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM
Bethany - Jerusalem: Mount of Olives - Dominus Flevit - Josaphat Valley - Esplanade - Western Wall.
AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEND THE HOLY WEEK IN JERUSALEM!
With our eighth session we will finally enter Jerusalem by virtually ascending and descending the Mount of Olives, a 2900-foot hill that served, from the third millennium BC and on, as one of the main burial grounds of Jerusalem. During our virtual descent we will stop and virtually visit the church of Dominus Flevit, built in 1955 to commemorate Jesus’ weeping over Jerusalem (Matthew 23:37-39; Luke 19:41-44) and in whose grounds archeologist uncovered various ossuaries from the time of Jesus with numerous inscriptions.
After the visit we will continue our virtual descent and we will walk by the Russian Orthodox Church of Mary Magdalene, built in honor of the czar’s mother in 1888. Once at the feet of Mount of Olives we will cross the Valley of Josaphat and we will virtually enter the Old City of Jerusalem, through one of its six old gates, St. Stephen Gate, so named because of the tradition that the first Christian martyr, St. Stephen (Acts 7:54-60), was stoned outside this gate. From this gate we will virtually walk to two of the most relevant biblical sites: the Western Wall, the holiest place accessible to the Jewish people, and built by Herod the Great in the first century BC as the retaining wall of the Temple Mount complex; and the Temple Mount, whose constructions works lasted for 83 years, from 20 BC to 64 AD, when a halt was called and 18,000 workers were laid off (riots resulted).
