One of the amazing things about visiting the 'Holy Land' must be walking around places where Jesus and his disciples did. It must help put you in touch with Jesus in a way that feels more tangible than living elsewhere. This is because Christianity is an historical faith, making claims about historical events that happened in real places.
However, Jesus is quoted as saying in the fourth gospel (John) that worship of God was no longer to be limited to one place that one group of people (be they Samaritan or Judeans) had control of. The recent carry on at the Holy Sepulchre, the supposed site of Jesus burial (kind of funny in a sense since he is meant to have been raised from the dead) is disappointing. Greek Orthodox and Armenian believers came to blows over control of this site. While it is understandable in a sense, is it not an exercise in missing the point when they are coming to physical blows? If it really is Holy ground, then shouldn't they be behaving in a holy way? I am no iconoclast, but when a place becomes a source of such bickering, then the point has long since been lost.
