The hometown of the most popular sinner of the New Testament may also have been the seat of one of the priestly families that fled Jerusalem to the Galilee after the fall of the Second Temple at the hands of the Romans.
A combination of recent findings at Magdala — home of Jesus disciple Mary Magdalene (who was recently celebrated by Catholics on her July 22 feast day) and the Jewish historian Joseph Flavius — point to a developed priestly culture with echoes of ancient Jerusalem at the site.
Everyone who visits Israel is overwhelmed by the amazingly delicious breakfasts. From garden-fresh produce to free-range eggs to fresh-squeezed juices to European-style bread to mouth-watering preserves and more! Watch this 60-second overview video and see if you can control your taste buds.
(We start every morning on our tours with breakfasts like this. Aside from our quiet time, it’s the best start to our day)
Just ask this 86-year-old who has been to over 87 countries—and shows no signs of stopping.
When 86-year-old June Scott is asked where she’s based, she responds: “This morning or in travel?”
Considering she’s visited all seven continents and over 87 countries, it’s a fair question. The Oak Brook, Illinois-based traveler just returned home from Palestine and Israel; before that, she was in Cuba; and in December, she slept in a pop-up tent in the world’s largest sand desert, the Arabian Peninsula’s Empty Quarter—often considered one of the least explored places on Earth. Last August? She and her family hiked sand dunes over 900 feet high, flew over the Skeleton Coast in a tiny plane, and kayaked with seals in Namibia.
As Founders of the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast, we were overwhelmed with the miraculous response. Sixty nations were represented as we came together in June for several days at the first Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast and conference. Incredibly, this Christian gathering was supported by the Knesset (Government of Israel) and Israel’s President.
During the Prayer Breakfast day, we were hit with the reality that it was 50 years to the day since the Six-Day War. Remembering this, the former Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren stepped to the stage and presented the stirring message below.
The video may be the most inspiring 11 minutes of your day.
