Day 3, January 10

Cana, Nazareth, Kfar Kedem ~  Today we toured the area west of the Sea of Galilee.  First we went to Cana, where Jesus performed His first recorded miracle at the wedding feast (John 2:1-11,) turning water into wine.  Many couples renewed their wedding vows in the church. Next, we went to mass at the upper church of The Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth after visiting the lower level of the Grotto of the Annunciation, thought to be Mary’s girlhood home. We then toured Joseph’s in nearby St Joseph’s Church. Next we visited Kfar Kedem, a setting where we experienced life in the time of Jesus, including a ride on a donkey! Returning to the Sea of Galilee, we visited the museum of Nof Ginosar which houses the Ancient 1st Century Fishing Boat
