Straight line distance from Nazareth to Jerusalem appears to be about 63 miles. Walking distance would be more on the order of 68 miles. Average adult walking pace is about 4 mph, so the journey would need 17 hours or more. 4 mph is really hard to sustain for more than a few hours. On the Oregon Trail 15 miles per day was considered to be fantastic. That pace would require more than 4 days for the journey.

I like to hike. I've walked the longest trail available at Starved Rock state park in Illinois several times. I said available because since the park is primarily limestone, hiking paths are recreated often for safety. A lot of the hiking there involves climbing steep staircases. It is several miles. I never really paid attention, but it takes a couple of hours at a steady pace.
