Day four

We began our day a little later due to the late night, but quickly felt the excitement of being in this holiest of cities. We are just outside the gates of the city. In the distance you can see Mt. Zion.

The next few pictures are of the East Wall, the garden of Gethsemane , and the Basilica of Agony next to the garden. The large rock in the church is the very rock that Christ fell upon when He learned His destiny from His Father( Matthew 26:36-42). It is quite a contradiction to look upon the beautiful ancient olive trees in this garden and to picture the magnificence of this place at the time of Christ, and to imagine His heartbreak as He fell upon the rock when He finally understood and accepted His destiny. br />
