Background Information

 

According to the Gospels Jesus apparently knew about the coming destruction of Jerusalem which happened a few years after his death in 70 AD. He wept over the coming destruction of the city at the spot of the Dominus Flevit church at the Mount of Olives, according to tradition. The church was built by the Franciscans in 1954 and is fairly modern in style. It's unusual architecture is in commemoration of the teardrops of Jesus at the spot. The site was not connected to the tradition of Jesus' weeping until Crusader times, but ancient Jewish graves have been found beneath the church.
