A Virtual Holy Week Experience: Palm Sunday, The Mount of Olives


Location: Online

Holy Week 1

Let us start the Holy Week by walking together virtually down from the Mount of Olives, on Palm Sunday just as Jesus did more than 2,000 years ago. 

Join our tour guides and lecturers in the Holy Land for a week of prayer, reflection and virtual sightseeing. 

The Mount of Olives separates the desert from the city. In the desert there is a disconnection from daily life; there is a shortage of food and water; a person is yearning for God's presence. The city is a bustling place with people, markets, traffic, and noise. The Mount of Olives is the threshold, a luminal space between two different places. The Mount of Olives is a place of the "between". Jesus entered the city from The Mount of Olives and the Gospels reflect the tension between the joy of his followers singing, "Hosanna! Hosanna!" and Jesus’ weeping over the future destruction. On our tour, we will follow the Palm Sunday route, and visit sites
