Mount of Olives - Footprint of Jesus

 

On a rock inside a compound which is a mosque today, can be seen a footprint identified according to Christian tradition as the print that Jesus left as he ascended to Heaven: "And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven" (Luke, XXIV 50-51).
