What To Expect

On this Christian Jerusalem tour you can follow in the footsteps of Jesus and visit sites where major Biblical events took place. The tour starts on the Mt. of Olives at the Church of the Ascension where Jesus ascended to heaven leaving an imprint of his foot in a slab of stone. A 4th century chapel once stood here but today we see a Crusader-era chapel.
The Jerusalem tour stops at the nearby Church of the Pater Noster. Here Christ taught his disciples the Lord’s Prayer. Plaques cover the walls bearing the Lord’s Prayer in multiple languages. We see the original place where Jesus taught his disciples.
We descend the Mount of Olives taking in the views of a 3,000 year old Jewish cemetery and the Old City across the Kidron Valley. We make a brief stop at the Dominus Flevit a teardrop-shaped chapel designed by Berluzzi to mark the site where Jesus looked out over Jerusalem and wept.
The tour visits the magnificent Church of All Nations and adjacent Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prayed and was arrested on the eve of his crucifixion. Crossing the Kidron Valley the tour enters the Old City through the Lion’s Gate. We can see the Pools of Bethesda where Jesus cured a paralytic.
The Christian Jerusalem tour visits the Church of St. Anne built above the site of Mary’s birth. We visit the Convent of the Sisters of Zion and see the Second Temple Era water cisterns and engraved Roman flagstones. Here Pilate judged and sentenced Jesus who took up his cross and walked through the jeering crowds along the Via Dolorosa to Calvary and his crucifixion.
The Jerusalem tour retraces Jesus route along the Via Dolorosa through the Old City pausing at the Stations of the Cross.
