Day 4 (4) Hosanna

We next reached a place very close to the hotel where we stayed. The hotel being on the top of mount Olives, we could have a wonderful view of the Old City of Jerusalem. the old city fortified by the walls and gates takes one instantly back to the days of Jesus. Our guide showed us a narrow path going downhill explaining that it is the way Jesus made His triumphant entry to Jerusalem on Hosanna day. Today the narrow path is concreted, but by constant use it has lost its grip. Our guide was repeatedly warning us to hold on to the side rails as we walked down through the steep slope.
"How terrible for you, teachers of the Law and Pharisees ! You hypocrites ! You are like water washed tombs, which look fine on the outside but are full bones and decaying corpses on the inside; Matthew 23: 27-32 " Photo shows view of symmetries adjacent to the Hosanna walkway in the Valley of Josephat.
