On the mention of Mount Zion, the image of Old Jerusalem rises to view, with all the circumstances of its ancient pomp and glory …
Mount Zion, if correctly traced, is partly within and partly without, the walls of the modern city. The foundations of the palace of David may still, it is supposed, be viewed on its rocky brow. Here too was the house of Caiaphas, the high-priest; and here is pointed out the spot on which the house stood in which our Lord celebrated his last Passover; while close at hand are the supposed sepulchres of David and Solomon.
