Hey everyone! Did you know that on July 8th, 1099, an important event happened during the First Crusade? 🌟 The Christian soldiers marched around Jerusalem, getting ready to capture the city. This was a big event in the Crusades, which were wars started by the Church to take back the Holy Land from Islamic rule.

The First Crusade started in 1096 after Pope Urban II’s call to arms in 1095. By July 1099, the crusaders reached Jerusalem and marched around the city, just like the Israelites marched around Jericho in the Bible. A week later, they captured Jerusalem on July 15th, creating the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

This event shows how strong faith can be in shaping history. It’s amazing to see what people can do when they believe in something deeply. πŸ™βœ¨

Bible Verse for Reflection: “By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days.” – Hebrews 11:30 (CEB)
