Places of Birth to Ascencion

Bethlehem



Olive Trees in the Garden of Gethsemene.

Trees resurrect with new branches growing out of the dying trunks.  Trees are dated back to the time of Christ.
Looking up from the pit, an unused water cistern that was modified for lowering a man down under arrest while deliberations carried on in the house of Caiaphas, the High Priest.  Psalm 88:6, "You have laid me in the lowest pit.  In the darkness, in the depths."
Original stone stairs leading up to the courtyard of Caiaphas from the valley floor.

Perpective from the House of Caiaphas.

Ascending the Mt of Olives.



Jewish Cemetary


Ps. 24:7, "Lift up your heads, O you gates!  And be lifted up you everlasting doors and the King of glory shall come in."  The ancient doors are sunk in the ground below that concrete sealed facade of the Golden Gate.

Haggai 2:8, "'The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,' says the Lord of hosts.  'The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,' says the Lord of hosts.  'And in this place I will give peace.'"

A tomb of one of the first Messianic congregations on the Mt of Olives.  James, the brother of Jesus, was discovered to be buried here.
