Photo Friday: The Lord Wept

Dominus Flevit Church overlooking Temple Mount (Photo: flickr/orcaman)

The Dominus Flevit Church sits on the Mount of Olives and overlooks Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. The church's name comes from the moment in Luke's Gospel when Jesus rides into the Holy City and weeps at the Second Temple's beauty and at its future destruction, which would scatter the Jewish people. Here, we see a view from the church, whose Latin name means "The Lord Wept." Shabbat shalom, friends.
