Good Friday

This day is the perfect day to take you back to Jerusalem.
These old streets were crowded today with pilgrims who walked the Via Dolorosa, the path Jesus took as he carried his cross to crucifixion.
Their progression ended at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher which was built on the site where Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected.
Holy prison.
The alter of the crucifixion is always so very crowded with worshipers who want to touch the site where Jesus died on the cross.
The tomb of Jesus
The Stone of Anointing
Christians, Jews, Muslims all believe in the life of Jesus, so whether you are religious, or just a history buff, it truly is an inspiring and amazing place to visit.  
Good Friday Blessings,

When I see beautiful architecture like this it saddens me to think of what has recently been destroyed.

I hope one day I will be able to visit it! Members of my family have gone on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and I myself would love to. Have a wonderful Easter Tammy!

The craftmanship of the old buildings amazes me. It is a wonder what men could do with the most rudimentary of tools.

Your photos are beautiful.

That's beautiful, Tammy; great photos and well written.

I always wonder what exactly it looked like in Jesus' time before the large shrine, etc. was built... I imagine in some ways quite different and yet some things unchanged. Much like our world in general I think.

Blessings to you always,
Linda

What an amazing experience that must be....I can only imagine. My father died on Good Friday and after what happened to Jesus, I always wondered why they called it 'good".

What a destination! But I don't think I could take the crowds. I've heard the Garden of Gethsemane is lovely too - more my speed I think :)

Dearest Tammy,
You did save this from your Birthday trip, for posting at a perfect time! Indeed, to 3 major religions Jesus has played a major role and it is a very important historical place for all human beings. Glad you got to see and experience all this.
Hugs to you,
Mariette
