week 15Via Dolorosa by Craig Robert

The artwork Via Dolorosa depicts a street within the Old city of Jerusalem that is believed to be the path that Jesus walked on his way to crucifixion.

The Via Dolorosa pilgrimage, meaning the sorrowful way, is followed by Christians of many denominations around the globe.
This week we celebrate the Easter Holiday which is a commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after his death. It is the oldest and most important Christian festivals celebrated with the greatest joy.
The dates of Easter changes each year, and several other Christian festivals fix their dates by reference to Easter. Churches are filled with flowers, and there are special hymns and songs. As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter.
On Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ. It is typically the most well-attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches. Christians believe, according to Scripture, that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross.
Through his death, burial, and resurrection, Christians believe that Jesus paid the penalty for sin, thus guaranteeing for all who believe in him, eternal life in Christ Jesus.

Have a Happy Easter Holiday!!!
