Mount of Olives

Today we get to look across to Jerusalem, from the Mount of Olives. It will be almost the same view that Jesus had of the city, 2000 years ago, although lots has changed since then. We will read from the Bible some key passages, including this one:

Mark 13:2-4 - Later, Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives across the valley from the Temple. Peter, James, John, and Andrew came to him privately and asked him, “Tell us, when will all this happen? What sign will show us that these things are about to be fulfilled?”

Luke 19:41-44 - As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it 42 and said, “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. 43 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side.

Living in Grace
