Jesus Begins His Ministry
In the morning, we cross the Sea of Galilee by boat from Tiberias to Capernaum, now in ruins but once a thriving town where Peter lived and where much of the public ministry of Christ took place. See the Church of the Primacy of Peter, where Christ taught the Eight Beatitudes to his Disciples. Mass will be celebrated at the Mount of Beatitudes. Continue to the ruins of Magdala where Mary Magdalen lived. In the afternoon, drive to the Golan Heights, overlooking Upper Galilee. Visit Tel Dan and the Banias (Caesarea Philippi) Cross the River Jordan via Jacob’s Daughters Bridge and continue to Pilgrim’s Park for renewal of baptismal vows in the River Jordan. Return to your hotel for dinner.
Mt: 16:13, When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi* he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?
