Jerusalem 8: Mount of Olives

The Mount of Olives provided a great view of the whole old city, including the Temple Mount. It was an occasion for a family picture for Deanna, the saintly lady the Lakeview crew was so privileged to be able to carry over the rough streets in her wheel chair. She's there with her husband and mom. Inspirational.

This is the city Jesus wept over. This is the place where he walked down the hill to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray (we got to pray there to too). This is the place where the Lamb of God lay down his life for the sins of the world.
