After a weekend at the Dead Sea, we began our final morning there with worship at 6:45am. We then began our trek north to Galilee and visited great sites along the way.
We stopped at Qumran, the site linked to the Dead Sea Scrolls, then went to Jericho and its ancient spring. We continued north to the Harod Valley and visited the Harod Spring (Gideon’s 300 men) and Tel Jezreel, an area linked to King Saul, David, Ahab, Jezebel, Jehu, and Elisha. We finished with a drive around Mount Tabor (Deborah and Barak) and went into Tiberias to eat a well-deserved dinner.
Our evening has ended gently at our nice hostel along Galilee’s shore. This establishment has a private beach on the Sea of Galilee and several in our group enjoyed a swim.
This gentle evening will be followed by a full day of sightseeing tomorrow. Until then!
