Where Jesus Taught the Beatitudes

The hills surrounding the Sea of Galilee frame the lake like a portrait.

Chuck taught us from the beatitudes this morning on the mount where Jesus delivered them. The Church of the Beatitudes has eight sides commemorate the eight “beatitudes” that began Jesus’ celebrated Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:3-10).

The hillsides are bursting with wildflowers, fresh grass, and spectacular color. The tranquil slopes tower above fruit crops and fertile fields that stretch beside the lake.

Regardless of how often I visit the Sea of Galilee, and no matter where I stand to view the picture, the subject always seems to be smiling.

The view never gets old.
