Finally we visited Capharnaum, a former trading centre where the taxes were collected from the caravans. Here in this busy place Jesus spoke in the Synagogue and amazed the crowds who began to spread His fame as a preacher and healer all along the trade route. The former bustling city is now just a ruin with remnants of the Synagogue still standing, as well as some structures from the house of Peter's mother-in-law where Christ healed her. The Bible truly comes alive outside of Capharnaum on the shore of the Sea of Galilee as we saw the place where Jesus established His church. To see and touch the rock at that location certainly was a moving experience for all of us.
