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.
