According to the New Testament, Jerusalem was the city to which Jesus was brought as a child, to be presented at the Temple (Luke 2:22) and to attend festivals (Luke 2:41).
According to the Gospels in the Bible, Jesus Christ preached and healed in Jerusalem, especially in the Temple Courts.
During the last week of his natural life, Jesus came with his followers to Jerusalem during the Passover festival where a large crowd came to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the King of Israel!"
Following his triumphal entry, Jesus created a disturbance at Herod's Temple by overturning the tables of the moneychangers who set up shop there, and claiming that they had made the Temple a "den of thieves ". (Mark. 11:17) Later that week, Jesus celebrated the Passover meal with his disciples, an event subsequently known as the Last Supper, in which he prophesied that he would be betrayed by one of his disciples, and would then be executed.
In this ritual he took bread and wine in hand, saying: "this is my body which is given for you" and "this cup which is poured out for you is the New Covenant in my blood", and instructed them to "do this in remembrance of me." This ritual has come to be known as Communion. (Luke. 22:7–20) Following the supper, Jesus and his disciples went to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane.
