The next stop on our trip through Israel is the Mount of Beatitudes. The name of this mountain overlooking the Sea of Galilee is Mount Eremos. In the fourth century, the Byzantines built a church on the mountain. Later, the Franciscans built a chapel on the site, which stands today.

The next stop on our tour of Israel is going to be Capernaum, the city where Jesus centered His Galilean ministry.
