Arriving at Cairo Airport

Caesarea (Hebrew: קֵיסָרְיָה‎‎; Arabic: قيسارية‎, Kaysaria; Greek: Καισάρεια) is a town in Israel located mid-way between Tel Aviv and

Haifa (45 km), on the Israeli Mediterranean coast near the city of Hadera. The town was built by Herod the Great about 25-13 BCE

 

Mount Carmel (Hebrew: הַר הַכַּרְמֶל‎‎, Har HaKarmel ISO 259-3 Har ha Karmell (lit. God's vineyard); Greek: Κάρμηλος, Kármēlos;

Arabic: الكرمل‎, Kurmul or جبل مار إلياس Jabal Mar Elyas Elijah is indelibly associated with the mountain, and he is regarded as

having sometimes resided in a grotto on the mountain.

Indeed, one name for Mount Carmel is جبل مار إلياس Jabal Mar Elyas Mount Saint Elias. In the Books of Kings,

Elijah challenges 450 prophets of a particular Baal to a contest at the altar on Mount Carmel to determine whose deity

was genuinely in control of the Kingdom of Israel; since the narrative is set during the rule of Ahab and his association with the

Phoenicians, biblical scholars suspect that the Baal in question was probably Melqart.

Prayer request at the chappel of Multiplication at Tabgha

Tabgha (Arabic: الطابغة‎, al-Tabigha; Hebrew: עין שבע‎, Ein Sheva) is an area situated on the north-western shore of the

Sea of Galilee in Israel. It is the traditional site of the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes (Mark 6:30-46)

and the fourth resurrection appearance of Jesus (John 21:1-24) in Christianity. Until 1948, it was the site of an Arab village.

The site's name is derived from the Greek name Heptapegon ("seven springs"). St. Jerome referred to Tabgha as "the solitude" (=eremos).

pastor Gideon sharing on the Beatitudes at the sea of Galilee The beatitudes come from the opening verses of the famous Sermon

on the Mount delivered by Jesus and recorded in Matthew 5:3-12. Here Jesus states several blessings, each beginning with the

phrase, "Blessed are ..." (Similar declarations appear in Jesus' Sermon on the Plain in Luke 6:20-23.) Each saying speaks of a

blessing or "divine favor" bestowed upon a person resulting from the possession of a certain character quality.

Worship on The Sea of Galilee is where much of the ministry of Jesus took place. This was the area where He handpicked fishermen

to be fishers of men. This is where He walked on water. Yep, right here on this very lake (but it’s called a sea).

The Dead Sea also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake A is a landlocked body of water which has a concentration of salts and other

dissolved minerals significantly higher than most lakes . In some cases, salt lakes have a higher concentration of salt than sea water,

but such lakes would also be termed hypersaline lakes bordering Jordan and Israel Its surface and shores are 423 metres (1,388 ft)

below sea level, the lowest elevation on the Earth The Dead Sea is 377 m (1,237 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the

world.

Named for the "Our Father" prayer (Latin: Pater Noster), the Church of the Pater Noster stands on the traditional site in

Jerusalem where Jesus taught his disciples the Lord's Prayer. Emperor Constantine built a church over a cave here in 4th century,

and this has been partially reconstructed. Plaques in the cloister bear the Lord's Prayer in 62 different languages.

One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, "Lord, teach us to pray, just as

John taught his disciples." He said to them, "When you pray, say: 'Our Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.

Give us each day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into

temptation but deliver us from evil for thine is the Kingdom the power and the Glory forever and ever Amen  .'" - Luke 11:1-4

betrayal. (Mark 14:32-42) See pictures below.

King David's Tomb (Hebrew: קבר דוד המלך‎) is a site traditionally viewed as the burial place of David, King of Israel. It is located

on Mount Zion in Jerusalem, near the Hagia Maria Sion Abbey. The tomb is situated in a ground floor corner of the remains of the

former Hagia Zion, a Byzantine church; the upper floor of the same building has traditionally been viewed as the Cenacle of Jesus.

The building is now part of the Diaspora Yeshiva.

Located in the south of the Old City, facing Mount Zion and Hebron, the Zion Gate leads into the Armenian and Jewish Quarters.
Zion Gate is also known as David's Gate (Arabic: Bab el-Daoud; Hebrew: Shaar David), because the tomb of King David is believed
to be on Mt. Zion. The gate was built for Suleiman the Magnificent in 1540. In the 19th century, an area close to the gate
was the gathering place of lepers
Sometime during the biblical period after the construction of King Solomon's Temple, Mount Zion was the term used to refer to
the Temple Mount, as according to the Book of Isaiah (60:14), the Book of Psalms, and the first book of the Maccabees
(c. 2nd century BC).[1] Just before the Roman conquest of Jerusalem after the destruction of the Second Temple,
its location shifted once again: Josephus lo...cated the Jebusite town on the lower eastern hill, but used Mount Zion
to refer to the higher hill across the valley to the west, seemingly a more suitable site for David's palace Thus,
the western hill extending south of the Old City came to be known as Mount Zion, and this has been the case ever since

The Western Wall, Wailing Wall or Kotel (Hebrew: הכותל המערבי (help·info), translit.: HaKotel HaMa'aravi; Ashkenazic pronunciation:
Kosel; Arabic: حائط البراق, translit.: Ḥā'iṭ Al-Burāq, translat.: The Buraq Wall) is located in the Old City of Jerusalem at the foot of the
western side of the Temple Mount. It is a remnant of the ancient wall that surrounded the Jewish Temple's courtyard,
and is one of the most sacred sites in Judaism outside of the Temple Mount itself.

The Great Pyramid of Giza (called the Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the three
pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World,
and the only one to remain largely intact. Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb for fourth dynasty Egyptian
Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops in Greek) over an approximately 20 year period concluding around 2560 BC. Initially at 146.5 metres,
the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years. Originally, the Great Pyramid was
covered by casing stones that formed a smooth outer surface; what is seen today is the underlying core structure.
Some of the casing stones that once covered the structure can still be seen around the base. There have been varying
scientific and alternative theories about the Great Pyramid's construction techniques. Most accepted construction hypotheses
are based on the idea that it was built by moving huge stones from a quarry and dragging and lifting them into place.
