But it was nothing compared to what we felt when we ended our hike of the Land of Jesus at the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. We were elated, crying with joy and blessing the Lord for our journey".The Jesus Trail guide contains all the information you need to independently walk the Trail connecting New Testament sites in the Galilee and Jerusalem.
