    Capernaum

    November 16, 2017 in Israel

    Wonderful layered stories of the miracles of Jesus here in Capernaum. The centurion's servant, the bleeding woman, the calling of Matthew. All examples of outcasts and unloved being brought into the light of Jesus Christ.

    As we stood in the ruins of an ancient synagogue (likely a synagogue Jesus was in as he taught in this region), I thought it would be a good place for some portraits of our group. As Gentiles, every one of us was an outcast and a sinner who would be brought into the Kingdom only by the grace and love of Jesus.Read more

    Karfarnaum

    January 16, 2016 in Israel

    Am heutigen Tag, unserem dritten in Israel, erkundeten wir zusammen mit der Big Band die Gegend um den See Genezareth.

    Um 9.45 Uhr kam die Big Band mit dem Bus am Pilgerhaus an. Von dort machten wir uns zu Fus auf dem Weg zu einer Freiluftkapelle, wo wir mit Pater Zacharias eine Messe feierten. Danach besichtigten wir die Brotvermehrungskirche, in der sich der Felsen befindet, auf dem Jesus angeblich die Körbe mit den 5 Broten und 2 Fischen abstellte. Auf diese Kirche wurde im letzten Jahr ein Brandanschlag radikaler Juden verübt.

    Danach besuchten wir die Primatskapelle, in deren Umgebung Jesus sich nach der Auferstehung seinen Jüngern zeigte.

    Mit dem Bus ging es weiter nach Kafarnaum, dem Heimatdorf Jesu. Dort befinden sich die Ruinen einer Synagoge aus seiner Zeit sowie die des Hauses Simon Petrus, auf dessen Fläche sich heute die gleichnamige Kapelle befindet.

    Unsere Mittagspause verbrachten wir in dem St. Peter's Restaurant, das bekannt für den St. Peters Fisch ist, den die meisten auch probierten.

    Danach unternahmen wir eine kurze, aber sehr schöne Bootstour auf dem See. Zuletzt fuhren wir hoch auf den Berg der Seligpreisung, auf dem Jesus angeblich seine Bergpredigt hielt.

    Von dort aus gingen wir an Bananenplantagen entlang zurück zum Pilgerhaus, wo wir die Big Band verabschiedeten.

    Mt. Beatitudes

    December 19, 2017 in Israel

    On the Sea of Galilee, this is strongly believed to be where Christ told the people of the 8 Beatitudes found in Matt 5.

    Matthew 8 talks about Christ going up into the mountain, but the people did not follow Christ up to listen, only the strong disciples followers. The others stayed down on the sea side and did not come up to listen to Christ.

    After sitting down in amongst the Gardens, on stones we listened to Jared read through Matt 5.Read more

    Chorazin

    December 19, 2017 in Israel

    9 Minute drive north and around Sea of Galilee we got too one of the cities around the Galilee area where Christ performed 'Mighty Works', Matthew 11 talks about the Mighty works that he performed, it then states that it was cursed as well as a few other cities around.

    The main settlements were around the 4th and 5th Century AD when the synagogues were built.

    This is the place of where the Seat of Moses was found, which was a seat in the Synagogue that the 'Elder' or the person of authority was able to sit and teach or direct the people. Jesus mentions this seat to respect and follow the person in this seat UNLESS they are not doing what is right.Read more

    Capernaum

    December 19, 2017 in Israel

    After a whole fish at St. Peters restaurant down on the water.

    This is the very place that Jesus grew up, the people rejected Jesus at Nazareth and made his town here.

    There is a 3rd Century synagogue here, and potentially another synagogue below from earlier. There is no doubt that Christ was here preaching.

    This was the place that the centurion was healed, one of two times when Jesus Marvelled, with the only other time he was in Nazareth when he 'marvelled' at the unbelief. So in contrast he marvelled at the faith of a roman centurion and his own people in the opposite.

    About 1,500 people are believed to have lived here.
