(Click photos to zoom in to larger view)

Wide angle view of the rock, apse and dome of the Church. The apse mosaic shows Christ suffering the agony in the garden. The moasic over the rock shows the celestial temple supported in the corners by four cherubim.

The Church is coposed of twelve domes, respresenting the heavens.

In the Apse mosaic, the hand of God is outstreached towards the suffering Jesus, with the angel sent to support him.

A cherub supporting the dome of heaven (based on Ezekiel 1).
