Mount of Beatitudes : Nature's Very Own Amphitheatre

Monday, January 26, 2015

This hill located at the north-western point of the Sea of Galilee has a hollowed slope that serves as a natural amphitheatre, amplifying any speaker's voice. Wow! Is this for real? Then I'd want this on my backyard too. Ahahha! Do check out my post: Israel Travel Itinerary for more tips and inspirations.

On our way to the Mount of Beatitudes we we're welcomed by these beautiful views surrounding us.

Noticed the big rocks on the lower picture. The Israelite's tilled the land and gathered those big rocks in one place to be able to grow a crops on the land. Whew! That's a lot of hard work I tell you. I salute their dedication for turning the dessert into an oasis.

More views.

It's now time to look for a volunteer to climb up the slope of the hill and read a chapter from the Bible to test this nature's very own amphitheatre. Oh! There goes our volunteer.

Hmmm.. His jacket is camouflaging among the greeneries. Heheh!!

In the above photo, lower left side, I've marked the volunteer's standing position from the slope of the hill. Yeah, he was really far up there. But when he started to read it's as if he was just standing right next to me. Whhoooaahh!! It's amazing. This is nature's very own. #onlyinIsrael

SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE

This is where Jesus Christ delivered the famous Sermon on the Mount on Matthew 5-7 and Luke 6. From the Mount of Beatitudes you can get a good view of Tagbha and Capernaum which I'm going to take you to a photo tour later on.

On our way back to the bus, we stopped by the side of the mud road to make a new friend. Oh, hello there lady bug!

Uggghh!! Now, now our shoes got heavier! There's so much mud clinging to it. Geeezz!! It has rained the previous day so the dirt road turned into a mud road. Everyone is dancing and shaking just to remove it. Heheheh! Well, it's a good exercise anyway.

If you've enjoyed this short photo tour at the Mount of Beatitudes then stay tune for more.

UP NEXT: Capernaum.
