Description

The book gives first hand information about the holy land consisting Israel, Jordan and Egypt. However the main focus is on Israel and more particularly Jerusalem and the monuments churches and places of general interest to not only Christians abut also Jews. The book has several photographs taken by the author during his brief visit to Israel. the book gives a brief account of the history of the Jews and the development of Christianity. It shows the place where Jesus was believed to have been born and the place where he was baptized. The area around the Sea of Galilee is where Jesus preached and spent a great deal of his life. The sea of Galilee is where Jesus performed the miracle of calming the seas while walking on water. Nearby is the church commemorating the power given by Jesus to Peter. The place believed to be the location of Peter's family is of interest. The home town of Mary Magdalene is not very far. The place where Jesus performed another miracle that of feeding five thousand people with five loaves of bread and fish is also here. The place where Jesus and disciples had the last supper, his capture in the garden of Gethsemane and the palace where his trial and conviction took place is a complex of old but reasonably well preserved monuments. This is followed by The Via Dolorosa and the place of his crucifixion at Golgotha are also well preserved. Any visitor will be thrilled to see the wailing wall where Christians and Jews are allowed to pray and to offer worship there. This is the remnant of the First and second Jewish temples and visiting the place is the most important highlight of any pilgrimage.
The city of Jerusalem is disputed territory both Muslims (Palestine) and Jews claim as there own and is divided into several fragments and one goes in and out without knowing that there is such a division. One may add that despite the conflict the city itself is relatively safe and one can travel without fear. The real area of conflict is the Al Aqsa mosque built on what Jews claim as the holiest of holy places in the Temple of Solomon. No one is allowed to go to certain parts of this structure. Nearby is the mount of olives where Jesus preached and a beautiful panoramic view of the city of Jerusalem can be had from the mount. Near these is an old cemetery dating back to the time of Jesus and perhaps even earlier with over one and a half lakh Jewish graves.
There are a number pf photographs of important places in this book that adds to the readability.
