Hello all,

We went up to the north of Lake Galilee today to see Capernaum where Peter's House is.

They have built a large protective structure over it which has a glass floor so you can look

down into it. Supposedly it is where the sick man was lowered through the roof.😕😕

There was also a Tabernacle there which was built over the one that Jesus preached in.

I think this one is 4th century. The Mount of the Beatitudes is only about 10 miles away

and that was a beautiful setting. About a mile up from the lake where as Capernaum was

right on the lake. The supposition is that Jesus could have stayed with Peter at this house 😕😕?

What you come to realize when your here is the issue of the lay of the land. Everything from the lake

is up up up. There are hills and big hills all over. Walking would have had to be an issue for Jesus and

the disciples as well as the throngs of people who followed. When you look at a map nothing gives

you the feeling of how difficult the terrain really is.
