Sepphoris Aug 6

I am now back in Israel. Today I went to Sepphoris as well as Bet Ha Sha’erim. The second location is where rabbi Judah ha Nasi is bured, He edited the Mishnah in about AD 180-200. This codified the oral law into written form and is an anthology of mostly legal interpretations on various topics.

We also went to Sepphoris, a key city in the Galilee with Greco-Roman roots. Here one can find the most famous mosaic in Israel, part of a wealthy Roman influenced house from just after the time of Jesus. The city is one in which Jesus likely worked, if he shared Joseph’s trade as a carpenter and craftsman, since it is 4 kilometers from Nazareth and was the nearest major city.

I am here with Chosen People Ministries to observe the influence of several ministries present here. It should be an informative time of seeing what God is doing among Jewish-Christians in Israel, whose number has grown considerably in the last several years.

Here is the famous "Mona Lisa Mosaic" of Israel from Sepphoris:
