Israel Trip, Day 2

Caesarea by the Sea…we saw what remains of Herod’s palace. To say he was a man who enjoyed the royal life would be an understatement.

This is the city where Peter came to share the gospel with the centurion, Cornelius. (Acts 10:24)

We saw the theatre where , in Acts 25:23, Paul was brought in before King Agrippa and Festus.

This is where we see the name “Pontius Pilate” on an archeological find. Many skeptics doubted he was real, but the rocks cry out with evidence!

Next stop was Mount Carmel.

We stood on Mount Carmel, where Elijah, in I Kings, defeated the prophets of Baal. He also prayed there for rain and it rained after a drought.

Miggedo was the next stop. King Solomon’s gate is still partly standing, along with many stables.

Nazareth was next…we stood on the cliff that most believe is where Jesus was taken to be thrown off (Luke 4).

Then, we made our way to Tiberias, on the Sea of Galilee. We slept and got ready for another great day!
