Israel, Day 4

Next up, a bunch of other activities, including a visit to Yardenit, a water baptismal site on the Jordan River. Many of our crew decided to be baptized (I chickened out) :)
A stop at Korazim (woe unto you), and a visit to the temples and springs of Caesarea Philippi rounded out the day. As a rule, I don't really "dig" archeology (har), but the accompanying talks and information were a true wellspring of benefit to me. The pagan temples and shrines now seem a suitable backdrop for Jesus to use and proclaim: "on this rock I will build my church"...
Again, click on the photos below to go to the respective albums.
