Day Seventeen - March 17th, 2012

March 17, 2012  •  1 Comment

On my way to the old city I saw this light rail train suspension bridge. Where are the train tracks?  Well, down below... I found the cables far more interesting.

The Garden Tomb where Jesus's body was laid

 

The place of the skull is just outside the city gates and now above a bus station.  Calvary was above where now there is a graveyard.

John 19:17  Carry his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha).

 

The most elaborate of all the old city gates.  This is the Damascus Gate.

 

A Christian graveyard just 400 meters outside of the Zion gate.  A most notable grave is the cause of thousands of visitors here

 

Oskar Schindler is laid to rest here

 

Looking Southeast from this graveyard and a 400mm lens I could clearly see part of the wall that Israel has build around the Palestinian sector.

I am thoroughly enjoying this trip to Israel through your blog! It is so amazing to see the sites we have long read about in the bible.
You truly capture so much emotion in each of your photos!
