Jerusalem in Jesus’ Footsteps


Tour Itinerary

  • Stop atop the MT. of OLIVES at the CHURCH of ASCENSION, where a rock from which Jesus is believed to have ascended to heaven is located within a shrine and larger complex from later periods built around it.
  • Visit PATER NOSTER , where Queen Helena, mother of Emperor Constantine, had a 4th century church erected over a cave where Jesus is thought to have spoken to his desciples. The Crusaders too believed that Jesus taught the Lord’s Prayer to the disciples in this cave and a new church was erected in 1152. The present structure is a partial reconstruction of the Byzantine church with a 19th-century cloister.
  •  As you descend the Mt. of Olives, above the Jewish cemetery, a panoramic view of the Old City and Temple Mount below, are key vantage points to envisage the biblical and historical sites and events of time past.
  • Stop at the church of DOMINUS FLEVIT, where it is believed that Jesus predicted the destruction of Jerusalem
  • Cross the KIDRON VALLEY and enter the OLD CITY via ZION GATE
  • Visit the POOLS of BETHESDA at the CHURCH of ST. ANNE.
  • At the convent of the SISTERS of ZION, see a 2nd Temple Cistern and engravings on the ancient road, the LITHOSTRATOS, dated to the 2nd C. built by Hadrian
