Day 3 Wednesday: Caesarea, Mt. Carmel, Nazareth, Jezreel Valley and tel Megiddo – Armageddon:
Today was our first full day, and it was a great one! With a great sunrise over the Samaritan hills and sunny skies and perfect temperatures (low 70s), we departed by 7:45 for the first site of the day ...Caesarea. As a city built by Herod the Great, Caesarea served as the premier harbor into Israel. We saw the theater, hippodrome, many mosaics, the Crusader part of the city, the ancient harbor, and the aqueduct. We read from Acts 10 about Cornelius, the first gentile, along with all of his family to become believers in Jesus Christ. We recalled the stories of both Peter and Paul.
