Christian Sites Monday, 13 February 2012 09:14

The Basilica of Annunciation is a modern Catholic church today and where the miracle of Annunciation took place when Mary was drawing water from a spring in Nazareth, the news came from the angel Gabriel that she would give birth to Jesus.

“Walk where Jesus walked” is never more meaningful in your holy land tour then in Capernaum – referred as Jesus “own town” (Matt. 9:1). In Capernaum sit on the ancient synagogue with a foundation still present, and where Luke writes was built by a centurion whose servant Jesus healed (Luke 7:3-5). Capernaum is where Jesus began his teachings, this is where he taught (Mark 1:21; John 6:59) and made miracles by healing a man possessed by a demon (Mark 1:23-27), and where Jesus raised from the dead the daughter of this synagogue’s leader (Luke 8:49-53).
