Estimates are that there were 50,000 pilgrims in Jerusalem over the Easter weekend which saw a rare combination of Jewish Passover and Orthodox and Catholic Easters all at the same time. Many of the Christian groups were carrying national flags such as Eritreans and Serbians. Through it all was a massive security presence from the many different branches of the Israeli police and military.

Here a photograph of the restored Timur Shah Mausoleum set within a public garden adjacent to the Kabul River. One of the largest surviving Islamic monuments in central Kabul, the mausoleum of Timur Shah marks the grave of the son of Ahmad Shah Durrani, who effectively created the modern state of Afghanistan in the late eighteenth century. The mausoleum was heavily damaged in recent decades, but now restored it stands as one of the most iconic monuments in Kabul and the surrounding park provides much-needed green space in a congested part of the city.

Much of the ministry of Jesus occurred on the shores of Lake Galilee. In those days, there was a continuous ribbon development of settlements and villages around the lake and plenty of trade and ferrying by boat. The Synoptic gospels of Mark (1:14–20), Matthew (4:18–22), and Luke (5:1–11) describe how Jesus recruited four of his apostles from the shores of Lake Galilee: the fishermen Simon and his brother Andrew and the brothers John and James. One of Jesus' famous teaching episodes, the Sermon on the Mount, is supposed to have been given on a hill overlooking the lake. Many of his miracles are also said to have occurred here. Increasing water demand in Israel, Lebanon and Jordan, as well as dry winters, have resulted in stress on the lake and a decreasing water line to dangerously low levels at times. The Sea of Galilee is at risk of becoming irreversibly salinized by the salt water springs under the lake, which are held in check by the weight of the freshwater on top of them Follow @simonnorfolkstudio for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material. @natgeo @simonnorfolkstudio #photojournalism #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #climatechange #bible #biblical #archaeology #Jesus #religion #faith #holyland #christianity #simonnorfolkstudio #igtravel #visualarchitects #lakegalilee #galilee #Tabgha #seaofgalilee @simonnorfolkstudio
