Israel | Day Three (part 1)
It was hard to imagine that our next day could compare to Day 2. However, everything continues to amaze us. We have a native guide and bus driver, therefore, they know many locals and have inside connections that other tours don’t have.
The pic above is Munir (bus owner and driver) and Zaire (our tour guide)
This church was built on the ‘Mount of Beatitudes’. The place believed to be where Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount. The pic below is our group sitting on rocks on the side of the mountain and me speaking to them. I read part of Matthew 5 and we prayed here.
Here is an ancient boat discovered in the mud of the Sea of Galilee. It is from the first century.
The ‘mountain’ in the center of the pic is where Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount.
Fresh squeezed Pomegranate juice! So good. $2 a cup. Worth it!
We need a sign like this at church! At all holy places, they do not allow immodest clothing or other things shown here.
The small village on the hill here is where Mary Magdalene was from.
Here was my breakfast. That is a serious Jalepeno!! This is the land of milk and honey and large peppers. Remember, how big the grapes were in the Old Testament.
These remains are Capernium, the city where Jesus lived most of his adult life. Many amazing things happened here in Jesus’ life. There is a church built on what is believed to be Peter’s home. The ruins here are actually from Jesus’ time period. It was in one of these homes that the man was lowered from the roof and Jesus performed a miracle in his life.
Please excuse my typos and misspellings. I am doing good to get posts up. More later…
