DAY 3: NAZARETH, MEGIDDO & MT CARMEL 

And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, “He shall be called a Nazarene.” Matthew 2:23

We were greatly blessed this morning to meet several of the few remaining Arab Christians that live in the ancient town of Nazareth. They work at Nazareth Village, a recreation of the village as it would have looked when Jesus lived there.

MEGIDDO 
Famous for its location on the trade route between Egypt and Assyria, Megiddo was one of King Solomon’s chariot cities. The hill overlooks the Valley of Jezreel where the end time Battle of Armageddon will be fought.

MOUNT CARMEL 

Mt Carmel is most famous for the story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal in 1 Kings 18. It was pouring rain when we arrived and the scene below was hidden by mist and fog. The rain stopped by the time we finished out songs and study in the chapel, revealing a glorious sight from the roof observation deck.
