Israel Pilgrimage : DAY 1Sunday, January 11, 2015
MOUNT CARMELOur next stop was at Mount Carmel. This is where Elijah and the prophets of Baal had a showdown of whose god was the real God.
We weren't able to take many pictures here as it is only a quick stop. It was cold and raining when we visited plus the fog was too much we couldn't see the view of the valley of Armageddon from below. It would have been an awesome view from the top. It would be better not post the other photos we took since you'll only get to see the fog from the pictures. :)
On our way to Tel Megiddo we passed by some open tombs.
Nope, it's not scary at all.
TEL MEGIDDO (ARMAGEDDON)
Our lunch was served at a cafeteria located at the site.
MOUNT PRECIPICEThis is the last site we visited on our first day tour to Israel. It was very windy when we visited but it was all worth it. All around the place you could see a good 360 degree view of the area. From this mountain we could also get a view of Nazareth where Jesus Christ spent His boyhood with his earthly parents. To find out more about this site check out my previous post : Mount Precipice.
On our way to our hotel in Tiberias we passed by Cana in Galilee. This site is located on a road that leads from Nazareth to Tiberias. Cana in Galilee is traditionally taken to be the site of Jesus' first and second miracles, the changing of water into wine at a wedding feast (John 2:1-11) and the healing of the son of a nobleman living in Capernaum (John 4:43-54). Cana was also the home of Nathaneal (John 21:2).
And we are finally checking in at our hotel in Tiberias. Woohhoo!! Time to recharge for tomorrow's itinerary.
