View from on top of Mount Arbel overlooking the Sea of Galilee.
1. The Bible comes more alive as you are able to see the places mentioned in Scripture. This morning in my daily Bible reading I read in Song of Solomon of Mount Carmel and Mount Hermon and was able to vividly picture each place. When we arrived at the Sea of Galilee the wind had picked up and created waves, but the next day the water was calm. It gave us a clear picture of what the disciples faced in Mark 4:35-40 before Jesus calmed the storm.
2. To see firsthand archaeological findings that validate the truth and dating of God's Word.
3. To gain a greater appreciation of God's plan for Israel.
4. You do marvel that God chose to accomplish monumental events in such a geographical small area. Israel is about the size of New Jersey.
