My Holy Land Experience, Part 6

Today was special, we followed some of the steps of Jesus during the crucifixion. Tomorrow we will continue on that path but today we had a front row seat of Jesus’ death on the cross. It was truly a precious time for me, touching the very stone where Jesus was beaten and flogged. Walking the very road that my Lord walked; the very street where his blood was spilled.

You can see traces of what would have been the famous walls in some areas, but you would need to take a closer look to see that the walls were made with three thick layers. I couldn’t get near enough to get a clear shot, but this one in particular is a shot of where they say Jericho’s watchtower was located. They believe that a most of the city has yet to be uncovered.
