Today we left Netanya where we had spent the night going to Caesarea Maritima where the baptism of the Gentiles began, saw the sunken harbor, the hippodrome, the theater and the Roman aqueduct. So hard to understand how all of this was built without the construction equipment we're so used to. On our drive to Megiddo we overlooked Armageddon. Yes, it is a place. Onward to Nazareth which included visits to the Grotto of Annunciation, St. Joseph's workshop, Basilica of the Annuncation, Mary's Well and the Church of the Old Synagogue. We also visited Nazareth Village, replicating first center Nazareth, built on archeological finding preserved intact that provide a direct connection to the past and to Jesus' life in Nazareth. It was spellbinding. Our hotel for the next three nights overlooks the Sea of Galilee...so incredible.
