The following photo was taken from the observatory terrace on the top of the cliffs, overlooking the north side of the sea of Galilee. The first two villages are Migdal (center left, where the road bends) and Kibbutz Ginosar (center; on the shore).  Just above that, in the background on the beaches of the lake is  the ancient village of Capernaum. Further to the east is where the Jordan river flows into the lake, and in its background and along the right side of the lake are the Golan…

Photo taken from the Arbel cliffs, looking W over the Arbel valley & the Nithai hill cliffs. The valley winds around this hill, & can be seen in background (↑-L). On R- Arab village of Wadi-Hamam, where the road turns towards the Sea of Galilee. At the edge of the cliff, a ladder leads down to a path just below the cliff, from which beautiful scenery & amazing fortress built into the caves may be seen. The path leads all the way ↓, to a spring, the source of water for the ancient village.

Valley of ben Hinnom, S of the old city, Jerusalem. Now a peaceful, family park. In the days of Jeremiah, it was the location of the Temple of Molech where children were sacrificed & priests drowned out their screams by beating drums. In Jesus' day it was called Gehenna, the City's landfill, which was always burning (Matt 5:22; 10:28; Lk 12:5; Jas 3:6).  Wild dogs would fight there.

Mount Carmel. This is where Elijah met the prophets of Baal and challenged them (1 Kings 18:16-40). Child sacrifices were common rituals of the Canaanite Baal worshipers in Palestine during 9th Century BC. Near here archeologists had discovered the remains of infants who under the corrupt rule of the Israelite king Ahab and queen Jezebel had been sacrificing children in the temple of Ashtoreth, the goddess of Baal. Also the king Ahaz and king Manasseh sacrificed (by burning) his own sons to…

Gordon's Calvary, Jerusalem. This photo was taken between 1898 and 1914. The caves that form the eye sockets of the skull are visible just left of center.  The tomb is out of view behind the wall on the left side.  The camels are walking east along what is today a busy four-lane street.
