About this Event
Follow Jesus’ footsteps in a 1-hour virtual tour and visit the Galilee with an Israeli licensed tour guide who will make this experience educational and fun while you can interact with video and audio.
Tour will also include biblical references and a glance at Jewish life in the Galilee in the first century CE.
We will focus on three main sites of Jesus’ ministry (Matthew 4: 23-25) and miracles of Jesus at the Sea of Galilee northern tip.
After He was rejected from Nazareth (Luke 4:29-30), Jesus chose Capernaum as his hometown from which he will minister all around the Galilee and the Decapolis.
The Mount of Beatitudes. The first site of the visit is the Mount of Beatitudes where the Sermon on the Mount traditionally occurred (Matthew 4:23 – 7:29). Understand better why Jesus used the salt of the earth parable (Matthew 5:13). Also explore the Byzantine style modern church and its artistic representation of the event commemorated here.
With beautiful views of the Sea of Galilee also see local agriculture and learn how controlling this freshwater lake is crucial to the State of Israel and caused a war in 1967 with Syrians that set on the lake eastern shores and the Golan Heights.
Capernaum. Proceed to Capernaum and from archaeology, you will learn about Jewish life in the Sea of Galilee and how introducing a paralyzed man from a house rooftop was actually possible (Luke 5:17-26).
See where Jesus’ headquarters was (Matthew 8:14-16) and why Capernaum location was important for Jesus’ ministry. Visit the monuments that are standing to commemorate HIS presence in Capernaum – the Church and the Synagogue (Mark 1:21).
Tabgha. End the tour with a visit to Tabgha where some miracles occurred and where Peter received his primacy (John 21:3-10)Last – see how a fisherman’s boat from the 1st century looks like as one was discovered under the water and presented in this online tour.
