Day Twenty - March 20, 2012
This is a boat that was discovered about 20 years ago when the Galilee was low. It is called the Jesus boat because it is from the time of Christ.
This is the exciting and inspirational story of the discovery, excavation and conservation of the ancient Galilee Boat, known as the celebrated
The Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus preached the sermon on the mount.
Mary's well in Nazareth. This structure is built over the spot where Mary would have drawn water. The spring is located in the center of downtown Nazareth. According to a tradition, this was the place where angel Gabriel announced to Virgin Mary that she will give birth to the son of God
Luke 1:26,27: "And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary".
St. Gabriel Church is suggested by the Greek Orthodox to be the place of Annunciation. In the crypt of the church flows Mary's spring, the source of Mary's well.
Luke 1:31: "And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus".
