Jesus of Nazareth

Today we went to Nazareth and saw two pretty cool sites. First we went to an Orthodox Church that is built over the top of the only water spring in Nazareth. This would have been where the people of the town went to get their water. Tradition says that it was there at the spring where the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary to tell her that she was pregnant with Jesus. The dark picture is the spring. We then went to a Catholic Church that was built over Mary’s house, a cave that we were able to look inside.

One thought on “Jesus of Nazareth

  1. I think this would have been Ru’s favorite place to visit 🙂 So, do people thrown money down in the well for a reason? Also are those pictures of Saints in the well?
