I have never been to the Holy Land but my parents have been there several times and brought me back several items from their time there – water from the Jordan River and several wood carvings made from Olive wood from the Garden of Gethsemane. Every time I see them I am reminded of the holy ground on which Jesus walked, taught, preached, healed, and prayed. They remind me of the places where he was arrested, tried, beaten and crucified. They remind me of the road he walked carrying the instrument of his death to the hill called Golgotha.
