Traveling the Holy Land: Caesarea Maritima

October’s offering is from that stunning seaside location: Caesarea Maritima. With two Caesarea’s mentioned in the New Tesatment, it’s helpful to know this is right on the sea, thus the ‘Maritima’ name. Herod built a palace there, Paul was imprisoned here, Roman chariot races took place and today it’s being thoroughly excavated and preserved, as you’ll discover in the film.

Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below. And, if you know of anyone that has wanted to travel the Holy Land, please share this post.

Thank you so much for this beautiful video and insight into the locations of historical Biblical events. It is so nice and helpful to see the areas where Paul, Simon the tanner, Herod the great and others were. Knowing some of the details of the city adds to this colorful picture and Bible events. I will now think of this video when reading Paul’s writings. Thanks for the mini lecture tying this all together! Love it!!

Madelon, How well I remember your enlightening lectures in the Bible Study Seminars! Congratulations on all your new endeavors! This short video offers a valuable dynamic to our New Testament study, almost like walking hand-in-hand with the early Christians. Thanks, again.

Maddie,thank you, this is delightful and I learned several things from it! I’ve been on the Turkish side where Paul left in his little boat Tekla, fearing an unfair trial in Ephesis, but this video completes his journey for me.

Loved the post. I really enjoyed visiting here last September, but your post brought it back to life for me — AND I learned new things. I had forgotten that this is where Paul had been awaiting his trip to Rome. Thank you for doing this. I look forward to more.

What a kind idea of yours to share in such a vivid manner… Please KNOW my gratitude! Your knowledgeable commentary brings the video to life and is much valued, also. I highly anticipate the forth-coming videos! I may gain the ‘courage'(?) to visit the area during such a dangerous period… If I may make a small suggestion: NO Offense intended! Perhaps more video of the site and less of the commentator would be more enlightening as to the physical area:see more of what the commentator is describing and less of the commentator… This is a common mistake made by the… Read more »

This video took me to places I’ve longed to see. Brilliantly done. I never thought that Paul was sent out to sea when severe storms were common, and he was not expected to survive. A small, but significant observation. Paul in his time and place seem more real after viewing this video. Thank you very much.

I look forward to more of them and adding to my foundational understanding of the Bible. I remember standing in that sun-washed stadium when I was there.

Thank you for sharing this video. I look forward to other installments. I have never been even close to these areas so this makes It much more alive for me. Inspiring and amazing. I hope to visit some day should the opportunity arise.
Thanks again!

Loved the video and look forward to more. It did make me want to pinpoint the location on a map as I wasn’t as familiar with where this was. Just a thought for other videos.
