walking where he walked

walk with me through my stay at Galilee:

 Church of the Annunciation
Luke 1
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.

St. Peter's Primacy
John 21
 17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

 on the Sea of Galilee
Matthew 14
 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
 30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

 Mount of Beatitudes
Matthew 5
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Mark 1
21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.
 22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.


o little town of bethlehem

two weeks late, but better late than never. 
I spent a day in the town where the Savior was born. We visited the church of the nativity, the traditional site of his birth, sang Christmas carols in the grotto, and read the Christmas story in the "shepherds' fields."

Christmas has never meant so much.
And Christmas carols have never sounded so good.

Luke 2
 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
