Old Jerusalem, Israel

The Bible is true but many tourist sites in Jerusalem and Israel that claim to be Biblical are not. IsraelJerusalem.com qualifies the major sites in Israel, including in Jerusalem, against the Bible to separate fact from fiction.

Over 3 million foreign tourists visit Israel annually. Almost all of them visit Jerusalem and the majority are Christians, most of whom race across Jerusalem and Israel on tightly scheduled group tours that leave little time to question the sites being visited, the influence of the guides' religious orientation, or the perks they receive from the sites.

The sites in Israel that are archaeologically and historically true to the Bible include Golgotha, Jesus' Tomb, Wailing Wall, Hezekiah's Tunnel, Gihon Spring and the Mount of Olives in or near Jerusalem, Capernaum and Nazareth Village.

The sites that claim to be authentic but contradict or lack Biblical details include the Holy Sepulchre Church in Jerusalem, the Garden of Gethsemane just east of it, the Nativity Church in Bethlehem, Tabgha and Mount Precipice in northern Israel.

The sites that are popular but fake and fleece Christian tourists include Via Dolorosa and the Bible Lands Museum in Jerusalem, the Chapel of the Ascension east of it, and Yardenit in northern Israel.
