The Jerusalem cross is seen on flags, crests, and church steeples throughout the Holy Land. This particular woodwork is made from locally sourced olive wood and crafted by artisans in Bethlehem.
The shape of the cross carries deep historical and spiritual significance. The large cross represents Jesus. The four smaller ones represent the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – going out to the four corners of the world.
The Jerusalem cross urges Christians everywhere to spread the word of Lord Jesus all over the world. It reminds us of God’s love through the crucifixion and resurrection of his only son, and to fulfill his Great Commission – Go and make disciples of all nations.
Note: Due to the nature of olive wood and the individuality of the artisans and their processes, every cross is unique and differs slightly from the picture posted
