Jesus' journey in and out of Jerusalem from his friends' home in Bethany was along an obvious route covering the short distance up and down the hill between the village and the city; it is clear that this is the journey he made twice a day in the last week of his life.  He would not be able to make that journey today. This picture was taken this morning from the slope of the hill (it is 'the Mount of Olives') facing away from Jerusalem towards the village now separated from the city by the security barrier; there is no crossing point anywhere near.
