Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, Israel: Photo Gallery

On our urban hike through Jerusalem, Israel in December 2014 we stopped to visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. We saw other sites like the Temple Mount, the Western Wall, and the Mount of Olives on the same urban hike.

According to tradition, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (aka the Church of the Resurrection) is located in the Old City in Jerusalem along with the Via Dolorosa, the Temple Mount, and the Wailing Wall. The last four stations of the cross (the rest are located along the Via Dolorosa) are located at the church which is home to two of the most holy sites in Christianity: Jesus’ place of crucifixion and his empty tomb where we was buried and then resurrected. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre has been said to be the site of Jesus’ crucifixion, entombment, and resurrection since about the fourth century. In other words, these sites were located and identified by the church approximately 300 years after Jesus’ death.
