Scenes from Holy Week

I took these pictures around what’s left of Herod’s temple in Jerusalem. Jesus and his disciples were looking at these stones when they came into Jerusalem for Holy Week. (For “Scenes from Palm Sunday,” click here.)

At the Western Wall, or "Wailing Wall"

“As he came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings!’” (Mark 13:1)

These are the large stones to which the disciples are referring.

“Then Jesus asked him, ‘Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.’” (Mark 13:2)
