EasteR and PassoveR in JerusaleM

Israel, ah……….the Promised Land.
The Holy Land.

Where you can catch sight of Biblical sites from both the Old and New Testaments.

Walk the cobblestone in the actual cities and landscapes where Judaism and Christianity were born.

For centuries, the lives of Jews and Christians have been profoundly touched after visiting the land where the events of the Bible took place. A whole new spiritual depth and understanding may fill you.

Christian worshippers the world over congregate in the Holy Land of Jerusalem for Easter celebration. easter-bunnyani.gif
Easter celebration in Israel takes on a deeper meaning because a number of Christian rituals have their roots in Jewish traditions.

Jews celebrate Passover, the holiday of Freedom.

Pilgrims gather for an Easter sunrise service at the Garden tomb in Jerusalem.

Mass is held at the ancient Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem’s Old City.
Priests in white robes chant the ancient liturgy, as fragrant incense rises into the air.

Israel: where the Old and New, the Holy and Secular, and Judaism and Christianity meet.

This Passover. This Easter. Go.

“And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.”

Faith is putting all your eggs in God’s basket, then counting your blessings before they hatch.
Ramona C. Carroll

Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. And lo, no one was there.

Blessed Holidays sweet friends.easter-eggsani.gif

    Angel,
    A beautiful photo-essay!

    I especially like that depiction of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

    I’ve never had the opportunity to visit the Holy Land. How awe-inspiring walking the ground where our Lord walked must be!

    A blessed Holy Season to you, Angel.

    Don’t forget to take along some bacon rind for rubbing hog fat on anyplace a muslim might touch. The Jews just don’t eat it but the muzzies won’t even go near it.

    Kind of like garlic to ward off vampires… wear some around your neck to keep the Mad Bombers at arms length.

    You know, that’s a moneymaker. Hogfat perfume, bacon bracelets, pigskin clothing… Tee shirts featuring hog images… there you go. Just don’t forget me when you’re rich.
