Where’s My Backpack? Travel Photo Theme: Stone.

My most cherished pilgrimage still remains to be Israel, the Holy Land. Without taking away anything front he other amazing places that I have visited, the beauty of being in Israel is the thought of being right where Jesus literally walked. There are, of course, many levels of authenticity, the ones that are simply not but are respected as a place to commemorate, the ones that are most likely the actual places, and then there are those that are surely accurate, based on descriptions and historical data.

Well, this picture is of those considered to be surely accurate – that Jesus would have surely walked through this path of stones that led to the top of Mount Zion. This is called the Jesus Way because of its level of authenticity – Jesus would have definitely walked on this path as He climbed up Mount Zion and walked down the valley, because there is no other known path, through the centuries.

I walked through this stony, pebbly, already disproportioned path, as long as I could, thinking about my own call to follow the footsteps of the Lord. How powerful indeed to be right there were He trod!
