Christ Jesus’ home at Capernaum

Welcome to another video blog from a recent trip to Israel.

“He left Nazareth and made his home in Capernaum by the sea…”.

So writes Matthew in 4:13, introducing the reader to this central location of Christ Jesus’ ministry in the Galilee. Capernaum is located on the northwest shore of the Galilean Sea, a beautiful site in calm weather and a treacherous one when rough seas churn.  Although only about 1500 people and 13 acres in size in the first century, Capernaum has found its way into the Christian’s vocabulary as a center for the healing ministry of Jesus Christ — from Peter’s mother in law, to the man with evil spirits, to the centurion’s servant.  Enjoy this brief journey to the heart of the Master’s Galilean ministry.

    I love how you frame it as the cosmic battle between good and evil. Beautiful video! Thanks Madelon.

    How special to be with you there in Capernaum and better understand that special time that Jesus had there himself. (Also fun to see what looked like an A/U medallion you were wearing -a good symbol of the fullness of spiritual life without limitation.)

    So glad you enjoyed the ‘vlog’ Mary-Lee and thank you for writing. Yes, AU has been a huge part of my life — as both a camper and Trustee. All good!
