For the Christian world, the region on both sides of the Jordan River (Palestine-Israel-Jordan), generally encompassing territory from the River Jordan in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west, and from the Euphrates River in the north to the Gulf of Aqaba in the south, as well as the Sinai Peninsula (Egypt) constitutes the Holy Land where all the religious and historical events of the Old and New Testament came to pass.
The region has spiritual meaning for Christians because it was here where the incarnation of the Son and Word of God took place, where Jesus Christ was born, lived, travelled, preached, and where the first Church was founded.
Jerusalem is especially sacred because it was in this city that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead.
Christianity has a strong tradition of pilgrimages, both to sites relevant to the New Testament narrative (especially in the Holy Land) and to sites associated with later Saints or miracles.
For Orthodox pilgrims, the Holy Land is a special point of attraction as well as a unique destination for pilgrimage.
