More From the Holy Land

Internet service is not allowing pics to be loaded from the place we are staying. :(  Will share some when able!

It was a wonderful but exhausting day as we traveled through parts of the Galilee.  We visited the Mount of Beatitudes, a beautiful church commemorating the place where Jesus spoke the Sermon on the Mount.  We hiked down an old path (hundreds of years old) to the Sea of Galilee at Tabgha, the place commemorating the breakfast Jesus shared with Peter and the disciples in John 21.

After spending some time at the shore, we went to the town of Capernaum -- not far from Tabgha and also on the Sea of Galilee.  Capernaum was the ministry head-quarters of Jesus and also the home of Peter.

After lunch eating at a  St. Peter Fish restaurant, we took a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee from Capernaum to where we are staying.  So much learning today!!  The land speaks so much to the message of the Gospel.
