The Living Jerusalem
Ivan Benda: Liwing Jerusalem. 2003. Budapest Wherever he might be in the world, London or Beijing, Haifa or New York, Budapest or Cape Town, a Jew, when he wants to go to the City, will say: I’m going up to Jerusalem. I ask you to follow his example. Let’s open this impressive book and walk slowly up to Ivan Benda’s Jerusalem, which seems close to us on the pages, yet is as far as the sky. Through effort and goodwill and above all, through love, we can bring this sky closer to our profane world. He, who took these photographs shows us Jews, Christians and Muslims the path to follow. by László Csorba
Chapel of Adam
One can see the altar in the Chapel of Adam and the rock beneath the Golgotha. Adam’s skull was buried here. When Jesus was crucified and his body was nailed, his blood was dripping down from the cross and leaked through the cracked rock right on to the skull of Adam.
