A Change of Pace…
This day was a nice change of pace. We began the day walking through an authentic village from the time of Jesus. We dressed up and lived out what “insula” is all about. We saw an olive press, as well as made and ate our own bread. We then squeezed into a first century house and saw what the paralytic being lowered through the roof in Mark 2 was like.
We then went up to Mt. Bental and looked out over Syria from the top of the Golan Heights—and heard the amazing story of the formation of the modern state of Israel. God is clearly moving in His chosen people again, and we are praying that they will begin to see it.
After this we headed to Caesarea Philippi to see the “Gates of Hell.” We saw where Jesus told Peter that “on this rock I will build my church.” Jesus brought the disciples to a place they never imagined they would go to demonstrate that He will overcome. It was exciting to see the headwaters of the Jordan river as well.
Our next stop was Tel Dan. Here we saw an ancient gate called “the Abraham gate” because it is very likely Abraham entered through this gate into the ancient city of Dan. We also talked through the primacy of Israel in the plan of God.
The day ended with a boat ride on the sea of Galilee. It was the perfect end to a different kind of day. Each new day bring a new adventure and something we definitely did not expect.
Please continue to pray and follow our updates!
