Caesarea, Israel

We have just arrived at Tel Aviv in Israel, and after making a quick stop at Jaffa (Joppa), our first major site is Caesarea on the Mediterranean Sea.  Caesarea was built as a harbour and grand Roman city by Herod the Great, on the foundations of a small city.  

Paul was imprisoned for 2 years here after he was arrested.  He was interrogated here several times until he was sent to Rome because he appealed to Caesar as a Roman citizen.  Hence it was quite exciting for us to come to this place.  Both for the historical and cultural significance of the place.  But particularly for its place in our faith.  I can't help but to imagine Paul stating his faith in front of the Roman governor and Jewish accusers.  What he did was nothing more than believing in a reasonable and loving God.   

One of the many interesting things was an inscription with the name of Pilate.  His name was in the Bible, and for a long time, no where else.  This discovery is just one of the numerous archeological evidences that the Bible and its contents are real.  

[By the way, I am not done with Cambodia yet.  I will post more on it when I can get around to it.]

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd
ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links
or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the
same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each
other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send
me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
