Our Trip to Israel: Mount of Beatitudes

Today, we went to the spot where it is thought that Jesus gave His “Sermon on the Mount” (Matthew 5-7).

I felt honored that I was asked to read the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12) for our group by our tour guide at that location.

You’ll notice that I’m not standing on the grass but on the floor of a structure. That’s because various catholic sects have built buildings on most of the “sacred” sites Christians visit when they come to Israel.

This is what it looked like inside that building..,

Then, I went outside and took a video of this building and its proximity to the Sea of Galilee.

Then I took a picture of this location from a boat on the Sea of Galilee.
