Day 2: Mt. Zion – Ein Karem
We start our day with a visit to:
Mt. Zion: One of the hills surrounding Old Jerusalem just outside the city walls. The name Mt. Zion has been used in the Bible as the location for the City of David (Ancient Jerusalem) 2 Samuel 5:7, 1 Chronicles 11:5, 2 Chronicles 5:2 and 1 Kings 8:1 and later for Temple Mt., but its’ present location and for over 2 millennium, (transferred from Ancient Jerusalem), is now on the site of the name of old Jerusalem’s so-called Western Hill, recognized today by all as Mt. Zion.
