In the lower Galilee region of Israel, an archaeological team from Kinneret College has discovered the ruins of a synagogue which would have been around during Christ’s lifetime.

Dr. Dotti Aviam, a senior researcher at the Kinneret Institute for Galilean Archaeology at the Kinneret College on the Sea of Galilee spoke to JNS News about the significance of the find. “This is the first synagogue discovered in the rural part of the Galilee and it confirms historical information we have about the New Testament, which says that Jesus preached at synagogues in Galilean villages,” Aviam states. The passage Aviam refers to is Matthew 9:35: “Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.”

Immerse Yourself in Worship in the Stunning Acoustics of St Anne’s Church, Jerusalem

st_anne_church_and_bethesdaWe’ve seen it time and again. The Church of St Anne in Jerusalem has a holy signature in acoustics like few other places.

When most people start singing in this historic church, tears well up in their eyes.

The Church of St Anne in Jerusalem is known for having some of the best choral acoustics in the world.

As you sing, notes cascade off the stone and come back at you like a thousand angels singing.

But, it’s more than just acoustics that are amazing.

It’s the spiritual sense that you’re joining with fellow believers who’ve worshipped here for nearly one thousand years.

Do you want to step into that scene?

Well, now you can.

This video is from Break Forth Israel Next Level 2016.  As we joined in worshiping together, there was a sense of holy presence. There was awe-inspiring reverence.

What Did Rome Look Like?

The Colosseum by night.Visiting Rome is a highlight for Christians. You can imagine the culture that the Apostle Paul walked into. You can visualize what Rome must have been to walk through in the early years of the Christian church.

But the stunning ruins can sometimes leave you a little bewildered as to what went where.  It can leave you running to the closest gelato shop while scratching your head (and yes, you should enjoy the best of Rome’s gelato)!

If you’d like to visualize Rome in its heyday, your wait is over. This video recreation gives a stunning view into what Rome must have looked like.

Plaka in Athens: A beautiful stroll on your Christian tour.

Plaka, Athens

Plaka, Athens

When you travel to Athens on your tour of the Missionary Journeys of Paul, try to take a couple of hours to stroll through the drop-dead-gorgeous Plaka area. It’s just a short walk from the Acropolis.

Seeing breathtaking beauty can be profoundly spiritual as it reminds us of our Creator. Beauty often sets our hearts longing for God’s promises in eternity.

(Note: Well take time to relax at Plaka on our upcoming Break Forth Paul Tour. More info here.)

Here is a little more about Plaka:

Stroll around Plaka, one of the most alluring and cosy districts in Athens. Renowned among the Athenians as the Neighborhood of the Gods, Plaka will cast a spell on you with its winding streets and nicely restored old houses of a neoclassical flair and coffee shops, tavernas and tiny mezedopolia (small tavernas serving traditional tid-bits (meze). Relax and enjoy your beverage or a meal with the right touch of romance and nostalgia of the past. You will be overwhelmed by the plethora of folk art items, works of art, traditional products, clothing and handmade articles found in souvenir shops all around.

Stunning Plaka at night.

You will also encounter significant monuments and sites covering antiquity, as well as the city’s Roman and Ottoman past. The district is a real cultural mosaic: Small churches and mosques, a hammam, the Roman Agora, and the first university of Greece.
