My entries in my journal from Galilee took up nearly a quarter-inch thick section of my journal, so I’ll try to adequately describe it in bite-size chunks that attempt to do it justice. But really, Galilee is something that can never be portrayed or communicated satisfactorily.
These are the names of some of the cities/places we went: Bet She’an (Old Roman City), Nazareth, Mount of Beatitudes, Tabgha, Capernaum, Bethsaida, Tiberias, Gamla, Mount Tabor (Mount of Transfiguration, see Matthew 17), Megiddo, Hazor, Tel Dan, Caesarea Philipi, Nimrod’s Castle, Chorazin, Sepphoris, Akko, Haifa, and Caesarea.
One of my favorite field trips. We hiked to Gamla, a city that is on a mountain near the Sea of Galilee. It is seen directly across the mount of Beautitudes, so it is probably the city Christ was referring to when He said, "A city set on a hill cannot be hid." Gamla was actually known for it's wicked ways, so perhaps He was saying, "Be careful how you act because everyone can see it." I love this scripture. I am sitting on some ruins of a synagogue there, which Christ probably taught and performed miracles at, for He went from city to city around Galilee preaching in synagogues and healing their sick.
