Tour Day Two, Jan 11

Nazareth, Cana, Kfar Kedem, Ancient Boat ~  Today we toured the area west of the Sea of Galilee.  We began at the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth & the Grotto of the Annunciation, thought to be Mary’s girlhood home, before mass in the upper level church. We visited Joseph’s workshop beneath St Joseph’s Church. Not too far away, we visited Cana, where Jesus performed His first recorded miracle at the wedding feast (John 2:1-11,) turning water into wine.  Couples renewed wedding vows in the church. AtKfar Kedem we experience life firsthand in the time of Jesus. We ended the day with a sunset cruise on the Sea of Galilee. It was quite windy and took a while to cross it, but it reminded us of the storm that Jesus calmed in Matthew 8:23-27.
