Today we walked the Via Dolorosa, the Way of Suffering. Essentially we traced the path Jesus took from the Mount of Olives where he was arrested all the way to the place where he was crucified and buried. We had a couple really awesome teachings from Rich and Jeff as we made made our way through the city. However, the thing that left the biggest impression on me came from an off-hand remark from our Israeli guide Ronen at the Church of the Holy Sepluchre. The church is split between three major denominations—Greek Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox and Roman Catholic—and three “lesser” denominations—Egyptian Copts, Syriacs and Ethiopians—and they don’t always get along.
