Sea of Galilee Boat Ride

What joy to take a ride in a wooden boat on the Sea of Galilee (Tiberias). After traveling to the middle of the lake, the 7 boats were lashed together for a memorable worship service.

River Badger

We spotted a ‘River Badger’ while hiking through Tel Dan.

“the rock badgers are a people not mighty, yet they make their homes in the cliffs;” (‭Proverbs‬ ‭30:26‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

“And the rock badger, because it chews the cud but does not part the hoof, is unclean to you.” (Leviticus‬ ‭11:5‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

“Who touched my robe?”

One of the most touching murals I’ve ever seen. It is titled “The Encounter”

“…for she thought to herself, ‘If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.’ Immediately the bleeding stopped, and she could feel in her body that she had been healed of her terrible condition.” (Mark 5:28-29)

Herod’s Theater in Caesarea

Panoramic view of Herod’s Theater

I was moved to tears as we enjoyed singing hymns together and heard from proud King Agrippa at Herod’s Theater in Caesarea by the Sea. It was easy to picture why many of the Roman leaders chose this location by the Mediterranean Sea with its lovely weather and gentle breezes.

Chuck Swindoll brought the Apostle Paul’s defense before Felix and Festus here to life in a stirring way.
