Via Dolorosa

We walked the winding, congested, cobblestone path of the Via Dolorosa.

The Catholic Church has set up 14 stations along the way to remember different parts of Christ’s march to Calvary. Some of the stations are biblical, and some are based on legend.

They led us to the Holy Sepulchre church, where the final stations are located.

Modern-day Jerusalem is such a mess of who owns what… Everyone claims to have this or that. It’s all a bit overwhelming and ridiculous.

In the end, for me, it was awesome to walk in the footsteps of Christ on the Via Dolorosa and remember His sacrificial death. But it is far more awesome to walk in His footsteps daily and remember that He rose to life and offers eternal life to all who acknowledge Him as LORD.
