My call...

Romans 10:13-14 (NLT)
For “EVERYONE who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?

Israel - Day 10

Mount of Olives......

Jesus spent the night on the Mount of Olives, during his last week in Jerusalem (see Luke 21:37)

It was also in the same Mountain when he ascended to Heaven after empowering the disciples. (see Acts 1:4-11)

This is the church of the Ascension.

Garden of Gethsemane.....

All four gospels record the incident of Jesus’ agonizing prayer and betrayal by Judas. (see Matthew 26:36; Mark 14:32; Luke 22:39-40; John 18:1-11)

Some of this olive trees are possibly back to the first century (Jesus’ time)


John 5:2-9 describes the Pool of Bethzatha (also called Bethesda) as a pool with five porticoes located near the Sheep Gate.

This is also the place of Mary's birth.

Via Dolorosa....

The way through the narrow streets from the Anonia to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher came to be known as the Via Dolorosa (Latin for “Way of Sorrow”)

This Via represent the approximate route that Jesus carried the cross from condemnation to crucifixion.

He carried the cross for you and for me!
