As believers, we know that hell is very real but it is still a confusing notion. While it’s not easy to wrap our minds around it, as Christians we have to fully understand it to understand God and His love for us. Of the 8.08 million people living in Israel as of September 2013, Christians constituted approximately 320,000 people, around 3.5 to 4% of the population.Jesus spoke a lot about hell because He wanted us to understand what He was going to experience on the cross on our behalf.
The Russian Orthodox mission was established in Jerusalem in 1858, but Russian Christians had begun visiting the Holy Land in the 11th century, only a few years after the Conversion of Kiev.
Such visits continued over the next 900 years, eventually growing into the great annual pilgrimages of the late 19th century, which continued until World War I, and ended with the Russian Revolution.
The Greek Orthodox Patriarchate considers itself to be the Mother Church of Jerusalem, to whose bishop patriarchal dignity was granted by the Council of Chalcedon in 451. However, in 1964 a historic meeting between Pope Paul VI and the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, Athenagoras, was held in Jerusalem.
After 1099 and the Crusader conquest, the (Orthodox) patriarchate of Jerusalem, already in exile, was removed to Constantinople.
Since this date the local Church has been entirely gentile in composition.
