Kanye & Kim Visit Site of Jesus' Crucifixion, Baptize North West in Israel
While Kanye West's trip to wife Kim Kardashian's home country of Armenia got a little wild (he ended an impromptu concert by jumping in a lake), the couple's trip to Israel was more subdued and spiritual in tone.
There was good reason for the comparatively sober tone. Kanye and Kim -- both self-identified Christians -- took advantage of their Middle East trip to get North West baptized in the Holy Land. Specifically, at Saint James Cathedral in Jerusalem's Old City.
"Kim Kardashian’s daughter will be baptized and become a Christian officially and a member of the Armenian church,” Archbishop Aris Shirvanian, an Armenian church official, told the AP. "All I know is that she’s a famous personality. I don’t know her in person. In any case she is welcome with her family."
In addition to the baptism, the couple stopped by a Jerusalem church that purports to be erected on the site of Jesus' crucifixion.
"We woke up really early to see the site where the crucifixion of Jesus Christ took place," Kardashian wrote on Instagram, following it with another shot of her and Yeezus kneeling at the altar of Jesus.
While the exact site of Calvary, the place of Jesus' crucifixion, is disputed, the church they visited -- the Church of the Holy Sepulchre -- has been put forth as the correct location since the fourth century.
