Six Days Later
Today we focus on a rather unusual story in the Scripture. I will be reading the text from Matthew’s gospel. Before I read it, let me set the context. Jesus has just traveled with the disciples to a town about 25 miles north of the Sea of Galilee called Caesarea Philippi. Though that doesn’t sound far to us, twenty five miles would have been quite a walk for Jesus and his disciples! We always try to take our groups there and this year was no exception. And, even traveling by bus, Caesarea Philippi, located as it is near the borders with Lebanon and Syria seems quite distant from the relative calm of the lake villages or the hill country. . .
