Israel pictures, part 1

Following are some pictures from my recent trip to Israel.
Here is me at Gideon's spring, which is where he picked his 300 men.
A sunrise at the Sea of Galilee. My favorite part of the trip was in the Galilee area.“
Matthew 4:15-16- Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,
the way to the sea, along the Jordan,
Galilee of the Gentiles—
the people living in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned.”
Olives at market in Tiberias. I really enjoyed the food on this trip. Olives, hummus, bread and cheese were a big part of that.
Jordan River
The synagogue at Capernaum where Jesus would have taught and done miracles. These are the ruins from a 4th century synagogue that was built on the one from Jesus' time.
John 6:59- 'He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.'
Caeserea Phillipi, which is where Peter said that Jesus was the Son of the Living God and Jesus replied that he was Peter and upon this rock he would build his church. See Matthew 16:13-19
