Ecclesia with Breaking Bread Journeys: Jerusalem Old City, Garden of Gethsemane, Holocaust Museum, Bethlehem

Today was my 6th and final day of shooting for Ecclesia Houston on our Holy Land tour with Breaking Bread Journeys. Our day began with a visit to the Church of St. Anne in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City and the adjacent ruins of the Pool of Bethesda and an ancient Byzantine Church. We then made our way just east of the Old City to the Garden of Gethsemane and the church beside it, The Church of All Nations. Next we arrived at the Holocaust History Museum for a profoundly moving experience. After that we crossed back into the West Bank for a visit to Bethlehem. There we enjoyed shopping for handcrafted olive wood products made by local Palestinians. Also in Bethlehem we feasted on an unforgettable lunch of local cuisine and then made a quick visit to the Church of the Nativity. Not pictured: we concluded our amazing week with a traditional Shabbat dinner in the home of a local Jewish family who were very gracious hosts. This concludes my blog series for the Ecclesia Holy Land tour. It’s been a very enriching experience for all on the journey. Thanks for following along!
