This gate (above) is called the Golden Gate or the East Gate and is considered a holy site for all faiths. It was once located on the eastern side of Solomon's Temple. After descending from the Mount of Olives, Jesus entered this gate on Palm Sunday before his crucifixion. In Jewish tradition, this is the gate where the Messiah will enter Jerusalem. The Ottoman's sealed it to prevent the Messiah from entering.
"This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut."
This is the Mary Magdalene Orthodox Church on the Mount.
This is the church (above) where Jesus wept. It was closed : (

Freshly squeezed pomegranate juice. Mmmm!!!!
SOOO delicious! Just what I needed.
It was absolutely one of the highlights of my time here in Jerusalem and I hope to return one more time before we leave. We'd also like to visit Bethlehem and Jericho if time allows! I'm so thankful to be able to visit multiple times because it's really sooo much to take in. One day is NOT enough. It's a little surreal at times and hard to really grasp all the biblical and historical importance.
