Wednesday: Caesarea Maritima, Mount Carmel, Nazareth

Wednesday: Caesarea Maritima, Mount Carmel, Nazareth

Today we visited Caesarea Maritima and saw the remains of one of Herod the Great’s ambitious building projects. Rather than remembering Herod, however, we thought more about the centurion Cornelius and Peter as well as Paul who passed through here and was also imprisoned. On to Mount Carmel with a fantastic view of the Jezreel Valley. From there we went to Nazareth for another perspective on the significance of this area and then went into the city itself. We visited the Orthodox Church of the Annunciation, then on to the Synagogue Church, and then to the Basilica of the Annunciation. In the picture, Annabelle is ‘scrolling’ the biblical text on her mobile device and reading the story from Luke 4 recording Jesus’ reading from the scroll of Isaiah in the Nazareth synagogue. To complete the reenactment, we were going to throw her off a cliff, but she escaped.
