The Zion Gate

Located in the south of the Old City, facing Mount Zion and Hebron, the Zion Gate leads into the Armenian and Jewish Quarters. Zion Gate is also known as David's Gate because the tomb of King David is believed to be on Mt. Zion.

Epistle Reflection

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
by whose loving kindness we have been born anew;
born to a living hope
by the resurrection of Jesus Christ for the dead;
born to an inheritance which will never perish
or be frittered away,
but is kept for us in heaven.

New Testament Reading - Gates of the New Jerusalem

thumb

21 The twelve gates were made of pearls — each gate from a single pearl! And the main street was pure, transparent gold, like glass.

22 No temple could be seen in the city, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are worshiped in it everywhere.a 23 And the city has no need of sun or moon to light it, for the glory of God and of the Lamb illuminate it. 24 Its light will light the nations of the earth, and the rulers of the world will come and bring their glory to it. 25 Its gates never close; they stay open all day long - and there is no night! 26 And the glory and honour of all the nations shall be brought into it. 27 Nothing evil will be permitted in it - no one immoral or dishonest - but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
