StoryMatthew 16:15: When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples: ““But what about you? … Who do you say I am?”?” Caesarea Philippi, as mentioned in this passage, was called Paneas in ancient times. It borrows its name from the mountain of Panium, or Hermon as it is called today. Its river is one of the three main streams that flow in to the Jordan River.

Standing on the cliff overlooking Gamla, one can look down the valley on the left and see Capernaum on the North end of the Sea of Galilee. Gamla is not just a symbol of the heroism of a determined few against a mighty empire. It is also an integral piece of the landscape of the Holy Land.

StoryFew places in the Holy Land are as famed and celebrated as the Sea of Galilee. Ancient Jewish historian Josephus wrote that it was “wonderful in its characteristics and in its beauty. Thanks to the rich soil there is not a plant that does not flourish there, and the inhabitants grow everything: the air is so temperate that it suits the most diverse species.” Much of the ministry of Jesus took place on its shores. The gospels of Mark (1:14–20), Matthew (4:18–22), and Luke (5:1–11) describe how Jesus recruited four of his apostles from the fishermen working on the Lake. One of Jesus' famous teaching episodes, the Sermon on the Mount, is supposed to have been given on a hill overlooking the lake, and countless of his miracles are told to have occurred here, including his walking on water, calming the storm, the disciples and the boatload of fish, and his feeding of five thousand people.

StoryThe Dead Sea is a salt lake at the edge of the Jordan river. It is ten times as salt as the ocean – so salty, in fact, that nothing lives or grows in it. It is the lowest place on earth – geographically, that is, since the Dead Sea is rich in historical and spiritual significance.
