  • I'm not a religious person, and the more I heard/learned, the more skeptical I kind of became to be honest. I mean, where Jesus LEANED against a wall.... come on. There's no hard proof of anything. Al...  more »

  • this is Brittany's mother, this song is so beautiful, I have been telling My LORD how I want his presence in my life more than anything else in the world, yesterday I took off from work to spend a day just with my LORD no one else. I played this song all afternoon I was so happy, I was singing it all day and I made copies for all my friends at work. JESUS died for me and you so we may have eternal life, what a GOD there is no one else like him, without him I have no life, I want the whole world to experience this amazing love. I love him because he first loved me. to GOD be the GLORY. amen.
  • You can imagine the entire stations of the cross. When you walk the streets and the pain Jesus went through.
  • What an incredible journey! There are 14 stations along the Way of Sorrow and it was quite an experience to visit all of them. You will need a guide if you want to understand what you are seeing.
  • The path where Jesus walked from he's conviction to he's grave. A modern invention, yet it gives you the feeling of walking through an holy and ancient history.
  • Via Dolorosa is most important to Christian. From the Lion's gate to Church of the Holy Sepulchre, it has nice view and different current setup such as shops, etc.
