Holy Land

term used by Jews, Christians, and Muslims to describe the Land of Israel and Palestine

The Holy Land is an area in the Levant that is holy to Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Islam and Judaism). The name roughly refers to the region of Palestine. Jews say God gave the Holy Land to them. This is where Jesus was born, crucified and resurrected. James, along with the others named "brothers" of Jesus, are said by others to have been Jesus' cousins. Several Crusades were fought there.
