Day 2: Living Words

Mar 07, 2014 Comment(s) Tags: ,

Today, Friday, is coming to a close, and if I had to sum up remarks from the group, it was about bringing the words of the Bible to life. We visited Capernaum and walked into the temple where Christ preached, walked, and performed miracles. We noted the milestone markers that date back to the time of Christ and are marked with Hebrew scripture that denotes the time period.

Whether one is a skeptic or believer, there is an authenticity of history that one experiences in the Holy Land. The feeling of God’s presence is palpable, and moreover, the magnitude of Christianity’s influence on our lives and the world can be felt. Most of our travels today were around the Sea of Galilee where Christ met Simon Peter, James, and John. Not only is the area beautiful, but its sense of smallness helps one to envision Christ and His disciples being fishers of men.

Tomorrow, we are off to Tiberias, Mount Tabor, Cana, Nazareth, and Jerusalem.

Your questions are always welcomed.
