Day 04 - Galilee: Mount Arbel, Tabgha, Capernaum, Chorazin, Mount of Beatitudes, Ancient Boat, Galilee Boat Ride
We are ending our day riding on a boat across the Sea of Galilee. Doing a similar crossing that Jesus did from Capernaum to Susita (the city Hippos if you spoke Greek). We are staying in a hotel just south of here in Ein GeV. Susita is the approximate area where Jesus went and cast out the two demon possessed men at the tombs in Matthew 8, we will learn more of that tomorrow.
Our day started with going to the top of Mt. Arbel; this is most likely the place Jesus went to pray in Luke Ch 6. A small group of us took the challenge of hiking to the top, and there were parts of the trek where we were literally climbing rebar on the side of the mountain with no rails or repels to hold you up. It was exhausting and very hot, but then you look back and get this beautiful view of the Sea of Galilee.
We went to many other sites including Chorazin, Mt of Beatitudes, Tabgha and Capernaum. It was incredible to walk some of the same places that Jesus walked, as well as seeing some of the synagogue that Jesus taught in.
