Photos from Thursday


Now from Thursday: the Mount of Beatitudes, the famous Byzantine mosaic of the loaves and fishes from Tabgha, students experiencing the Sea of Galilee (complete with Brandon walking on water), the Synagogue and ruins of houses at Capernaum, and finally the site of Magdala, only discovered in 2005, with excavations still going on. Magdala photos include the first century synagogue, complete with Torah-reading lectern, a mikveh (ritual bath) that could have been used by Mary Magdalene herself, and a modern chapel with boat-shaped altar overlooking the lake.
