A Visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher

This week I have been thinking about the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and decided tonight to share a few pictures from my last visit to Jerusalem two years ago.

Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, Ladder, Easter WeekendHere is the primary entrance to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. If you look in the center of the picture you will see one of the most famous ladders in the world. There is a story about it that I will share some day.

Edicule, Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Rennovation, Tomb of ChristFirst I will share a picture that I took three years ago. This was taken when repairs were just starting on the Edicule. I was really looking forward to seeing how the Edicule looked after the repairs.

See Holy Sepulcher Tombs for more information on this structure.

Edicule of the Holy Sepulcher, Jerusalem, Church, He is RisenHere was my first view of the Edicule on my trip two years ago. This was taken not long after the repairs were completed.

Edicule of the Holy Sepulcher, Jerusalem, Church, He is RisenHere is a closer view. The Edicule looked almost brand new after the restoration work.

Earlier this afternoon I watched the National Geographic special about the restoration of the Edicule.

I have never been inside the Edicule as the lines have always been very long, and we have not had the time.

I am thinking about how many times that I have visited the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. I think that it is just four as I don’t think I have visited it twice on any one trip to Jerusalem. However, I am looking forward to visiting it again in June as there are a few pictures that I want to take.

Remember tomorrow, as we do each Sunday, that He has risen.
