Fascinating 10-minute Black & White 1929 Movie of the Holy Land

by Steve Ray on June 20, 2020

This black & white movie of the Holy Land from 1929. What a different world than we know today. Interesting scenes of pilgrims arriving at about the 7:30 second mark; Nazareth around 7:50 with girl like Mary carrying a water jug on her head.

They show the Garden Tomb as the place of the crucifixion and burial so it was obviously a British Protestant doing the filming. Enjoy a step back in time!

This is neat! No sure why they even bothered to show the entrance to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, but a very interesting clip.
