We then drove along the Jordan River north and crossed over into Israel and around the Sea of Galilee to our hotel in Tiberias.

The second group, coming from the United States today, arrived early at the airport and we picked them up and brought them up to Tiberias in time for dinner and Mass along the shore of Galilee.

Enjoy the movie for each group below.

Bible Riddle: What Am I?

by Steve Ray on February 16, 2017

Since we will be here today, I thought this riddle appropriate!

But, before you click the link, see if you can figure out this riddle :-)
Write to me if you need help; click here to see the answer.

Three times I have been divided

Twice a garment was the tool

and the limit of many kings.
Once God’s son I did embrace.

Never have I walked the ground,
nor in the heavens was I found.

What am I?
