I would like to join this tour on Dec 29th. But I will be in Jerusalem already. How do I join the tour in Jerusalem?
if you plan to visit Jerusalem all you need is a map! All things are close, for example from lions gate to ghetsimani garden you need to walk less than 10 minutes. i also recommend to use public transport because us very cheap, they have a card and you need to fill it with a daily pass wich is around 13 shekels aprox 4 dolars and you can change bus and trams with this. When you buy something from old city, negotiate first! The prices can decrease in some cases with 40%😉
How close can I get to the rock Jesus prayed right before his arrest? What times and days is the garden open?
I visited the Garden of gethsemane with a daily tour - 8 hours walking from the Mount of olives, along all the holly places, along Via dolorosa, time off for lunch in a nice armenian restaurant and the tour end at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. I did this walk with The Bain Harim Tourism - highly recommende. Enjoy your stay in Jeruzalem.
How close will I be able to come to the rock where Jesus prayed? This is the holiest moment of the Bible for me and I would like to make this visit in Sept. very special. What arrangements can I make? Cindy
At one time one of the Olive trees in the Garden, was considered to be as old as the times of Jesus. Later, carbon dating showed that it was less than 1000 yrs old. So it did not belong to the time of Jesus. The exact spot or rock cannot be determined after more than 2000 years and the history of so many wars in that land. Some purport a specific rock, but there is no real proof for it. There is no question, however, that the Garden of Gaths-amin is the same place that Jesus prayed. So any place in that Garden, a place of quiet, to reflect on the agony the Messiah hesitated to undertake, but undertook nevertheless is good enough. And use that moment to submit in obedience to God to make those difficult decisions that are contrary to your own will.
