A couple pictures from our trip to Jerusalem yesterday and day one in the North

Day One

Another fantastic day in Isreal. After being picked up at our hotel early this morning, we headed straight to Nazareth. Our first stop there was the Church of the Annunciation. Built on the site that is is said to be where Mary was told by the Angel Gabriel tha she would be would become pregant by the miracle of the Holy Spirit. In the same complex is the home of Joseph, the stepfather of Jesus, and the ruins of ancient Nazareth.

From there we went to Capernaum, and visited the ancient city that we know for a fact that Jesus lived. The ruins of the city and synagogue were spectacular, as was the site of Peter's home. I will post some video when I get a chance. 

We start again tomorrow early, so it's lights out. We head for Caesarea, Acre and Golan Heights.

Until then,
