    Along the way, we pause at the Pools of Bethesda, where Jesus performed one of his most miraculous healings, restoring the use of a man's legs after 38 years of crippling paralysis (Joh. 5:1-9). Continuing on, we follow the 14 Stations of the Cross, stopping to reflect at each point along the way, until we arrive at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and the site of the empty tomb (Matt. 27:57-60).

    As we exit the church, we make our way to the Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall, where we join with countless others who have come to offer their prayers and petitions. Finally, we drive to the top of the Mount of Olives, the very spot from which Jesus ascended to Heaven after his resurrection (Acts 1:9-12), and marvel at the panoramic views of the city below.

As we wander through the Amphitheater and Crusaders' City, we can't help but feel awed by the sheer scale of this once-great metropolis, which was home to over 100,000 inhabitants at its peak. Next, we visit the stunning Bahai Gardens in Aabas, a serene oasis of greenery and tranquility that stands in stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city.

As we wander through the evocative ruins of this once-thriving border town, we are transported back in time to the days of the Bible. We visit the ancient synagogue and the "House of Peter", where Jesus is said to have healed Peter's mother-in-law (Matthew 8:14-15).
