        Jerusalem: Sacred and Contentious

        Learn about Jerusalem and its significance in the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths in this media gallery from Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler.

Christian pilgrims flock to the city where their Bible states that Jesus was crucified, buried, and resurrected. And Muslims visit Jerusalem to fulfill a commandment from the prophet Muhammad. This resource is part of the Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler Collection.
