When American astronaut Neil Armstrong, a devout Christian, visited Israel after his trip to the moon, he was taken on a tour of the Old City of Jerusalem by Israeli archaeologist Meir Ben-Dov. When they got to the Hulda Gate, which is at the top of the stairs leading to the Temple Mount, Armstrong asked Ben-Dov whether Jesus had stepped anywhere around there.

Ben-Dov answered and said: "Mr. Armstrong, Jesus was a Jew! These are the steps that lead to the Temple; obviously, he must have walked here many times, and not once or twice."

Armstrong then asked if these were the original steps, and Ben-Dov confirmed that they were.

"So, you mean... Jesus stepped right here?" asked Armstrong again.

"That's right, sir" answered Ben-Dov.

"I have got to tell you this," solemnly, Armstrong said to the Israeli archaelogist, "I am more excited stepping on these stones than I was stepping on the moon."
