We stayed in the Galilee area today as well. Our word for the day was Pre-Eminence, which means superiority. Some of the places we visited today we saw God’s superiority displayed.
We started the day at Hazor and saw the remains of a 3000-year-old city. It was interesting to see how much of the old city you can still see. We had some visitors helping give the tour as well.
Next, we went to the city of Dan. We were reminded of the idolatry and sheer wickedness of the northern kingdom. I was saddened by the fact that we haven’t come very far as a society. God continues to display His superiority, and we continue to worship idols.
We also saw a recently discovered city gate that dates back to the time of Abraham. Pretty cool to think of Abraham walking by or through this gate.
We then traveled to Caesarea Philippi. The Greeks used this location to worship their god, Pan. We see God’s superiority also because this is also the location we read about in Matthew 16:13-16. Peter made his confession that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God.
The last place we visited was Golan Heights. This is the border between Israel, Syria, and Lebanon. Within a mile or two, ISIS is sitting. I was not a big fan of this location. We could hear the fighting, and that made me uneasy. This is also a display of God’s superiority. Israel is under constant threat, and God keeps her safe. Sometimes I feel under attack, but if I will trust in God, He will take care of me.
We ended our day watching the sunset on the Sea of Galilee for the last night. Tomorrow we will head out. I have really enjoyed Galilee, but I’m excited about what’s to come.
