Same as in the previous picture, the Via Dolorosa is now going uphill. It means we are ascending the hill of Golgotha. Many of the streets are like this one - narrow and with a lot of steps. Motorised transport is virtually impossible. This means, that if you had a shop along these ways, stocking the shop would involve a lot of manhandling.
Station 7 and 9: (Not in the picture) is where Jesus was supposed to have fallen under the weight of the cross, a second time. Neither of the 4 Gospels in the Bible, nor apocryphal writings; mentions that Jesus fell along the route. It may have happened, but we don't know. Whichever, it makes for good drama during Christ's Passion. Station 9 where it is said He fell for a third time, is not on the Via Dolorosa, but is at the entrance to the Ethiopian Orthodox Monastery, off the route and near to the end.
Station 8: (just a plaque on the wall up there) is where Jesus spoke to the women weeping for Him. The station is based on Luke 23: 28: "But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children, for behold, the days are coming when they will say, 'Blessed are the barren and the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!".
May you all have a great weekend in good company.
