In the Footsteps of Jesus

Capernaum is in the Galilee region where Jesus spent
much of his time. The synagogue was very familiar to
him and it is in this town that Jesus prayed for Peter's
mother-in-law. These are some things that took place

When John was put in prison, Jesus left Nazareth and
     dwelt in Capernaum 
He healed the paralytic who entered the house by roof
They left their nets and followed Him
The Centurion came and asked Jesus to heal his servant
The Temple tax that was found in the fishes' mouth
The Boat was headed to Capernaum when Jesus walked 
      on water to them.

In Matthew Jesus says this of Capernaum:
And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven?
You will be brought down to Hades. For if the mighty
works done in you had been done in Sodom, it would
have remained until this day. But I tell you that it will
be more tolerable on the day of judgement for the 
land of Sodom than for you.  Matt 11:23,24

I can tell you that we only saw ruins in the city of
Capernaum. That is true also of Magdala from which
a woman named Mary was relieved of seven demons.
It has only recently been discovered and the ruins of
the market place, the synagogue, the houses of the
priests showed that it was the town of Magdala.

The last place we saw in 'The footsteps of Jesus in the
Gallilee" is the Mount of Beatitudes. I didn't realize
that it was so close to the Sea. It is a hill that forms a
bowl--not a mountain just an elevation--and the people
sat on the side of the hill while Jesus talked below. Be-
cause of the the bowl terrain everyone heard him easily.

Well, reader, I will post pictures on Face Book, but know
the readers of the blog are not missing much, for the places
we went to were just ruins that were dug up from the past!
I am so impressed with the accuracy of all the prophetic
from Old to New Testament, as well as what has been pro-
phesied by Jesus and the apostles that we are now seeing
come to pass. It helps me to believe for all the prophecies
in both the Old and New Testament that have not yet been
fulfilled. One third of the Bible is prophetic.
God's Word is truth!
