Tel Hazor, 25 acres, it would be where the King lived. 200 acres of city. Dr. Roden spoke, he spent 2 digs here. It is very significant to the OT prior to Joshua 11. There are no visitors here, as most tours never see this place. First, Size is amazing, and was bigger than Jerusalem. They have found so much in this area. This location would be hard to conquer, as you can see down the mountain on all sizes. This palace was Canaanite, pre-Israelite, about 12,000 BC. We discussed relative dating with pottery systems. Everything has a record as they dig
The Panyast, or Banias, name is from a roman Greek god that was half goat and half man. The legend of "echo" Near Syria, often bombed last 63 yrs and "panic" come from this place. We drove by Nimrod's castle and the place of the Crusades. The word Assassin comes from this area, as they gave the spoilers hash before fighting
Mark 8, Ceasera Philippi, this is the location named there. Peter said to Jesus, "you are the Christ". This place was pagan and dedicated to a Caesar. This made it a very political place to say this. Peter likely thought Jesus intent was here for politics, which he wasn't. It was here that Jesus explains he is the so of a God. What Satan builds, Jesus will destroy! He spoke on servant Leadership. Ask yourself what are you will to give to serve God? Take up your cross today. This temple had water flowing from the rocks, and the pagans made their sacrifices there. It was there that Jesus pointed to when he said the gates of hell will be destroyed.
Next we go to Tel Dan, the name marks the northern most border of Israel, and comes from the tribe of Dan. It was a nature hike to the Dan. Their was a huge spring and many flowers on the way. The wall and places for the gates. There was a place in the stones where the hinges souls have been to the wooden walls. Dr. Roden spoke at the Dan gate complex. It is an impressive location. In the Bible, tribe of Dan is mentioned in Gen. 14:14, called a different name (Laish), as they wrote the Bible
Lunch at Gag Al Haden, meaning fish of the Dan. They didn't have St Peters fish, that gave up the coins. The food was family style and amazing!!! Hummus was perfect flavor, nothing like the states. I loved the food!
Down to the Sea of Galilee, 21 mikes across it. I am so looking forward to the ride on the Jesus boat! I went on now that I am updating this, and it was life changing and made me feel so close to Jesus! He walked on water and calmed the storm there. We danced, I bought a shirt, we got a certificate. I took videos, as it was so amazing, I don't even have words. They played beautiful Christian music and flew an American flag. The boat sailed from the museum to Tiberus, which talks about. The museum was amazing too, as they found a 2000 year old boat, and when they pulled it out of the water they were trying to decide if they should just keep it for themselves, but God sent them a double rainbow and they decided to share it with the world! You may or may not know, but rainbows have always been very special to me and they are a promise from God to Noah to never flood the whole world again, they bring such hope and love.
