History is repeating itself Biblically, and as posted earlier, the Vatican is now once again vying (Daniel 8:9) for a piece of the Holy Land, along with Israel asking for closer cooperation with Germany (Hosea 5:13) since ties with the United States are now fractured. This will, as prophesied (Daniel 11: 14-16), lead to a historical double-crossing.
Christian leaders push Israel to hand over control of area housing King David’s tomb, ‘last supper’ hall.
Christian leaders reportedly pressured Israel to turn over control of Mount Zion in Jerusalem during a clandestine meeting of senior city officials.
The meeting took place Tuesday in the office of Attorney Amnon Merhav, the director-general of the Jerusalem municipality. It was attended by officials from the Prime Minister’s Office, President’s Office, Tourism Ministry, Police, Kotel Rabbi’s Office, and more.
During the meeting, representatives of Christian groups in the capital pushed Jerusalem leaders to give the Catholic Church control over the Mount Zion area that includes the “Hall of the Last Supper.” There have been reports that Israel’s government is planning to turn the building in question over to the Vatican prior to the Pope’s expected visit in May.
Pope Francis is expected to visit Israel and to lead a service in the Hall of the Last Supper.
The same building that houses the hall, which is holy to Christianity, also includes the tomb of King David, a holy site frequently visited by Jews. Some Church officials expressed upset over what they termed a major increase recently in the number of Jewish visitors to the site.
