ABC Wednesday, V for Via Dolorosa
We were walking through the old town again to follow the Via Dolorosa, which is unlikely to be the precise path that Jesus walked. The original way is probably hidden under 2000 years of ruins of buildings. However large slabs of stone from the times of the Roman occupation were found along the way. The route begins in the Arab Quarter. There are fourteen stations, the last five are situated in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Each station shows one of the events that happened to Jesus when he was carrying his cross to the place of execution, which was Golgotha.
