My Travel Around Israel: Via Dolorosa
In between my busy work, I see to it that I get to go out and regularly travel around Israel. I was in Jerusalem thrice, and every time, Via Dolorosa was in the itinerary.
Here is a picture I posted of the entrance to the Holy Sepulchre Church. I believe I am at Station number 9, where Jesus fell for the Third Time. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is very important to both Christians and Catholic alike, because:
First, the ground where the Church is standing is the Golgotha, the hill where Jesus was said to be crucified.
Second, the Church is also the place where Jesus was buried.
I walked through Via Dolorosa – and I can’t believe I was also able to tread the same streets that Jesus trod during his final and most difficult hours.
One of the best in my travel around Israel.
