Travelling the Holy Land (6)

Tel Aviv is fascinating. A day is far too short to enjoy this vibrant city – even if all was at half pace due to the big holidays. The “White City” made us feel most welcome and very much at home.

Together with the group and under the guidance of Eayd we visited St. Peter´s church, looked at the home, where the holy Apostle was instructed from above to not call anything unclean, that God had sanctified.

About noon the next day, while they were on their way and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. 10 He became hungry and wanted to eat, but while they were preparing the meal, a trance came over him. 11 He saw heaven opened and an object something like a large sheet descending, being let down to earth by its four corners. 12 In it were all kinds of four-footed animals and reptiles of the earth and wild birds. 13 Then a voice said to him, “Get up, Peter; slaughter and eat!” 14 But Peter said, “Certainly not, Lord, for I have never eaten anything defiled and ritually unclean!”15 The voice spoke to him again, a second time, “What God has made clean, you must not consider ritually unclean!”16 This happened three times, and immediately the object was taken up into heaven.

Acts 10,9-16

We strolled down to the harbour together before we all went off on our own to enjoy this last day of our tour. Angelika and I were off to the long beach front to swim. We could hear the waves calling and the wonderful beach was so inviting. We stacked our stuff in some lockers and off we went to enjoy the rolling waves, the company of wonderful people in the Manta Ray and the full moon in the Holy Land.
