A Taste of Honey- Day 7

Our first stop was Nazareth, where there was a village set up as it would have been in Jesus’ time. It was a very interactive tour that made the Bible come alive in a new way. Their lives weren’t easy!

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon me, for the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. Isaiah 61:1

At the Mountain of Beatitudes, we read Matthew 5,6, and 7. They weren’t the nice, green, rolling hills that I had imagined. However, overlooking the Sea of Galilee in the intense heat knowing that Jesus taught near us was really cool.

Capernaum was Jesus’ main city of ministry after he left Nazareth. We spent some time there looking at the ruins.


We finished up our day with a hike down to the Jordan River. What an awesome time! The water was so cold and refreshing. There were good conversations and fresh commitments to God.

In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord. When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever.” ( Joshua 4:6-7)
