Station 6 six along the Via Dolorosa where St. Veronica wiped Jesus' face

The multimedia tour of the history of Jerusalem through Christian eyes begins with the birth and life of Jesus and continues with the history of Christianity in the Old City.

Now open to the public is a first look at the Terra Sancta Museum’s new multimedia installation that offers a tour of the holy city from a Christian viewpoint. This from The Times of Israel:

Located on the second station of the Via Dolorosa – the 14-station path Jesus walked from sentencing to crucifixion – the museum is housed in the lush Flagellation Monastery compound. Archaeological finds are sprinkled among the chapels and well-kept gardens that form an oasis away from the cramped hustle and bustle of the narrow street beyond its gates...

Respectfully and tastefully done, the multimedia tour of the history of Jerusalem through Christian eyes begins with the birth and life of Jesus and continues with the history of Christianity in the Old City.

Lights shine on catapult projectiles from the Herodian fortress the Antonia Tower, and a column capital likely from the Temple Mount. But one of the most moving parts of the exhibit for this reporter was seeing the naked bedrock of ancient Jerusalem.
