Nazareth Village - #SLPilgrimage

March 2, 2016
Nazareth2
On Saturday, February 27, 2016, we drove to Nazareth from our residence on the Mount of Beatitudes to visit the site of Mary's home and where Jesus lived as a child.

But first we stopped off at Nazareth Village, a complete replica of what the small Nazarene village would have been looked like over two thousand years ago.
Nazareth3We saw shepherds, a carpenter's shop, a replica of a mosque and a basketmaker, as well as what is believed to be the remains of a wine plantation.
Stepping into that village was like taking a step through time to a more simpler time in our biblical history.
