Thousands of Christians flock to Jerusalem's Old City, following the footsteps of Jesus to where they believe he was crucified over 2,000 years ago - at The Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Jillian Kitchener reports.
They're tracing the steps they believe Jesus walked - carrying the cross to where he was crucified more than 2,000 years ago. Thousands of devout Christians followed the cobblestone alleyways along the Via Dolorosa. It translates to "The Way of Sorrows." Every Easter, they flock to the Holy Land, commemorating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, stopping to pray at the various stations of the Cross, and ending up here - to the open doors of The Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Many Christians believe it's the site of Christ's Crucifixion, burial and resurrection. The Easter holiday and Jewish Passover coincide this year with Sunday being the day believers say Jesus rose from the dead.
Good Friday is the Friday before Easter Sunday, on which the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ is commemorated in the Christian Church. It is traditionally a day of fasting and penance.
