3:36 am
will from an outsider's point of view, someone would ask, what do the muslim have to be in the christian church? naturally, the door had the log and the keith. but this was not an ordinary key. there was a quarrel among the christians, which one of them wanted to hold the power when the seller had been conquered, jerusalem, he came up with an unfortunate looks idea. the moslems would guard the key. there were 2 very respective mazel families in jerusalem. no one knows exactly how it was in the beginning. who was locking was unlucky. the little rick
3:37 am
has so everyone made up his own tradition. mamma is more. she that than me the time my late father let me hold the key and opened the gates of the church of the holy sepulchre. i was 8 years old likeness at that. i was very excited as if i were holding the whole world and my hand was among the key had been passed down through 28 generations. and now i was custodian of the keys of the church of the holy sepulchre. my father was the last shake, descended from a long line going back to 1187. i chose not to be a shake and my oldest son doesn't want to be the custodian of the keys opening up to the amount of to hopefully it's still after the audio. and in our full apology, darlena jim johnny, johnny got the key holder, but not the dorman,
3:38 am
my job is custodian of the keys with him on the policy with the key thing on those and charging us for the church. every morning we opened the church for it was you know, 1007 days and the key remains to i as your know we have, we have a place here beside the church where you play, i swear, basically leave it with no joy. this on the coming, they wait for me. when i am coming a give it to me, i find another opening enough that i finish. i well, these change last history seems to have all this changed and may be the day will come when the churches will take over the key.
3:39 am
when the english came to jerusalem, they realized that there was a problem. but they could not determine what was right. and love was wrong. they formulated something for themselves in order to govern the christians here. so what we know to day as the stair, the school was actually made by the english 260 years in each the nomination has its own conflict between its tradition and the state school . what we must abide by it even if we don't like it.
3:40 am
so this way the church is functioning, forsake thomas. this area of or is that means common area? ah. including the entrance, the doors and all this area is common area. the 1st one and the 2nd one belongs to the armenians. catholics have only won. chris have fought with the golden eggs to call it they have fall and the catholic church has only one. i cannot clear myself because even the longest of the 3 than 3 of us should be there at the
3:41 am
same time. if they do with all that, and then i lose my rights, it's a lie and it is at all. yes, sometimes meaning for some time meaningless. the limits on the status school are tested almost on a daily basis. it gets drastic when a denomination wishes to perform services in an area they don't own when the griggs demanded to into the st. helena church, which belongs to the arminius, and we refused. then the police had to get involved decisions
3:42 am
from the police. no, we don't go, okay, we have to, we have to solve problem between us and okay. no to come home and you're forced to interview did. this is what you're doing, something you're not taking on their side, which i go like. if there's a problem suppressor, there won't be any fighting. all you do, you are getting the greek priest inside. okay? yes, this is in my a responsible and our responsibility. i'm taking my responsibility would be greatly site. okay, but there's some real close that this is the job too much, not to squiggles against against not the school. okay. the 1st time happened. hey, denise general coursework. we didn't force anybody. no, we didn't force you in. what? no, we didn't enforce any of that to put it's not that what you have. no right we how is that? we have to have we have that. i know they can have you can do that. we don't have
3:43 am
that. i think that we don't have that. i think this in this into so way off it when the verbal arguments to us and to a peaceful solution. i guess they start from 5. he says that's why the police can do mom. somebody because of the probably a stuff fight with the police. sometimes it is, it is my country of my spiritual continue, the way i want to defend the period is all the way this is all the way.
3:44 am

3:56 am
a spirit who believe that christ is the son of god. there is a difference in explaining the nature of christ, not the physical nature, but the union of god and man they were united as one in separate estie armenian belief. but the catholics and the greeks belief that laws 2 natures, although united but they function separate from that point of view in the middle of the 5th century, the churches were separated because of different thinking. ringback even wars happen for that
3:57 am
judgment of people from outside the church is not the same as the judgment we use. it may not sound logical what they do or what we say. but over here is how the church, according to the status quo, it is accepted. that's the way we do it as to where we are used to the with and that's probably delay. who will keep doing it.
