We visit the Armenian Quarter; the only area that can be truly described as a quarter- and we visit the Sepulcher, holy to the Greek, Roman and Armenian faiths. There surprisingly, we see a number of items that originate in the Jewish tradition connected with the burial of Jesus. The Sepulcher is a conglomerate of buildings with much to see and requires several visits just to explore it, quite apart from time needed for prayer.
However, history disputes that the Sepulcher was outside the Old City walls as claimed in Christian belief - and as a Jew cannot be buried within the City walls, there arises a query as to the historical accuracy of the Christian account.
We also hear why Christians from all over the world flock to Jerusalem for the feast of Tabernacles.
