The Hill of Evil Counsel

If you’re looking for a location during your tour to the Holy Land that will give you a unique vantage point, consider the Hill of Evil Counsel. A southern hilltop in Jerusalem, the scenes available from the shady walkways and grand outlooks are inspiring and spiritual. The name has something of a harsh sound to it as it was named in remembrance of the place where Caiphas, the High Priest, and his associates determined to arrest Jesus (John 11:47-50). From this location you can see the most popular Christian sites frequented by those on Israel Holy Land tours-Mount Moriah, Mount Zion in the west over Hinnom Valley (Josh. 15:8 and Jer. 7:32), Kidron Valley (2 Sam 15:23 and John 18:1), the Garden of Gethsemane, the Tower of the Ascension (Acts 1:11) and the Mount of Olives (Zech 14:2). The Hill of Evil Counsel also overlooks one of the most popular destinations on Holy Land tours-the City of David. (America Israel Travel)
