The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is just one of many Christian sites you will be visiting during your Holy Land Tour, this church described by many as being very different then your typical church back home, and the main reason why it is usually a very nice experience to the visitor to the holy land.
As long as Christian pilgrims have been traveling and visiting the Holy City of Jerusalem, they have been walking where Jesus walked along the last path on the “Via Dolorosa,” and for the last 1,000 years it is the exact path that is walked today in the Old City. With time, sacred past stories became revered landmarks – known today as the Stations of the Cross.
The Basilica of Annunciation is a modern Catholic church today and where the miracle of Annunciation took place when Mary was drawing water from a spring in Nazareth, the news came from the angel Gabriel that she would give birth to Jesus.
The Church of Multiplications located in Tabgha by the Sea of Galilee, is an exact replica of the 4th century basilica built to commemorate the miracle of feeding five thousand described by Mark 6:30-44, prior to Jesus walking on water on the Sea of Galilee.
Nazareth holds a special meaning to all Christians, and is a must and popular destination during your trip to the Holy Land. Nazareth is the home to the the largest church in the middle east the Church of Annunciation, where the angel Gabriel announced the news from God that the Virgin Mary is carrying his son.
“Walk where Jesus walked” is never more meaningful in your holy land tour then in Capernaum – referred as Jesus “own town” (Matt. 9:1). In Capernaum sit on the ancient synagogue with a foundation still present, and where Luke writes was built by a centurion whose servant Jesus healed (Luke 7:3-5). Capernaum is where Jesus began his teachings, this is where he taught (Mark 1:21; John 6:59) and made miracles by healing a man possessed by a demon (Mark 1:23-27), and where Jesus raised from the dead the daughter of this synagogue’s leader (Luke 8:49-53).
