Following along with Andrew O'Dell from St. Phillips Church:
"Today we made a splendid start for the pilgrimage, visiting Caesarea Maritima, the great man-made port, constructed by Herod the Great (one of the ancient wonders of the world). We began our tour standing before Greek statues, commissioned under Herod, which would have amounted to idolatry (in defiance of the second commandment). These statues stand as a witness to the unfaithfulness of Herod. Great builder though he was, Herod was no great lover of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. We then moved into the theater where Jeff gave a teaching on Acts 24-26, explaining that Paul would have stood trial on this very site."
Many sights to be seen on day 2 of travels! From viewing the Greek statues as mentioned above, to visiting the Caesarea Maritime, viewing the Valley of Armageddon, Beth She’an, ascending Mt. Carmel, and enjoying some delicious lunch in-between.
"After lunch, it’s off to Beth She’an where we here the account of King Saul’s tragic end (1 Samuel 31:1-13) and make the trek to the top of the tel of Megiddo."
