Adventures in Israel (2)

A wooden boat from 1st Century (found in Galilee) and the Museum of Fishing. Back then, fisherman is a quite decent occupation, and there were actually some people who worked in the fishing industry in the first disciples of Jesus.

Ancient ruins from Pan the Samaritan. The ancient Israelites used to worship the fake God for several times in history, which annoyed Jehovah. Now there are only some gravels and niches on the hill. From the fifth picture we might have a glance at the magnificent ancient architecture…
