Excerpt from Thesis :

Thus, the struggle within the city of Jerusalem and Israel itself has expounded itself to an international conflict between two dominating and conflicting political and religious systems.

As the fight for Jerusalem continues, one is left in awe to imagine so much effort placed in the acquisition and protection of one single city. Jerusalem, and its surrounding lands, is an ancient source of three of the world's dominant religions. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all lay claims to areas of the Holy Land and the struggle to reclaim it continues even today....

...

The city is one with a long and checkered past, full of struggle and great battles for sovereignty of a variety of different people. With so much conflict, one has to wonder in Jerusalem will ever be truly at peace.

Jerusalem is arguably Christianity's most important city, during the time of the New Testament all the way up to today. Though control of the city has changed hands many times, its main role has been as the capital of Israel and the site of the Jewish temple, and indeed, Jerusalem plays an important role in the Old Testament history of Israel's founding and growth (Armstrong, 2005, p. 194).
