Day 1: The Holy Week

Welcome to Israel! Today you will explore the final week prior to Jesus’ crucifixion. You will begin at the Mount of Olives. Despairing of corruption in Jerusalem, Jesus instead camped out on the mount, then just outside the city.

You will see where Jesus wept over the wickedness of the people, where he taught the Lord’s prayer, where he was betayed and arrested, where he ascended to heaven 40 days after the ressurection, and where his mother Mary is buried.

Entering the walls of the Old City, you will continue to the site of the trial by Pontius Pilate, and see the stations of the cross leading to the church of the Holy Sepulcher where Jesus was crucified, buried, and from which he arose.
