The dramatic story about Capenaum. How that little fishing town was once a nice town, hosting one of the most famous people in the world, then getting cursed by the same person and see the result of that now; only ruins left!

At the Qumran caves, a desolate place overlooking the Dead Sea, a discovery was made that gave us dramatic new evidence that the Hebrew text of the Old Testament is accurate and trustworthy. This was the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. That’s one fact, which made the church and other Christians happy. But you need to understand that western society is originally based on Christianity. Today, many people moves away from religions and of course Christianity, but do they move away from the truth?
An article about the history of the Christian churches in Israel. Because there are so many different groups of Christian churches, and Israel is seen as the central place for Christianity, they are all represented in this land. And because Israel is a democracy with the freedom of religion, and the churches choose to stay autonomous, who all share the holy places in the Holy Land, its history is long and complex.
An extended and detailed article about the 14 Stations of the Cross, which identify with the suffering of Jesus on his way to crucifixion. Their route is called the Via Dolorosa (Way of Sorrows). This is also the name of the principal street they follow, a narrow marketplace abustle with traders and shoppers, most likely similar to the scene on the first Good Friday.
The Dome of the Ascension stands in a walled compound east of the main road that runs on the top of the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. The location is just north of the Church of Pater Noster — which is built over a cave that the first Christians used as a more secluded place to commemorate the Ascension. This sight is a bit problematic, because the sight is claimed by the Muslims and Christians alike. So they need to share the Holy Site, and they do.
The Domus Galilaeae center is envisaged as a place where Christians will learn about the living tradition of Israel, following the footsteps of early Christian saints “who returned to their Hebrew roots to understand the meaning of prayer, of feasts, and Hebrew liturgies”.
