Take Me To Post Comment Form


Pastor Chris took groups of Christians on a pilgrimage to the holy land of Israel, and as part of the trip, the groups accompanied Pastor Chris to a boat ride through the sea of Galilee. The third day of the trip was a great experience for the participants as it raised their spiritual side to new heights. Pastor Chris who was spearheading the tour was led by God’s presence throughout the entire boat ride. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome led different groups to several holy places on the third day. Some of the notable experiences people enjoyed were the Mt. Beatitudes where the sermons were spoken by Jesus. Additionally, the sea of Galilee boat ride was another treat people loved.

Different groups enjoyed the trip over the sea of Galilee as it is well known as the origin of the gospel. The lake is abundantly blessed with fish and this has led the shorelines to be the perfect residential spot for many of the Israelites. As the groups were being crossed over the sea, they could picture how Christ was preaching along the shores. Among some of the names, the sea has from the Bible include the Sea of Tiberius which is in the book of John 6:1 and John 21:1. According to Luke 5:11, the sea of Galilee is referred to as Lake Gennesareth or the Sea of Chinnereth according to Joshua 13:27, Joshua 12:4 and Numbers 34:11.

A visit to the holy land is usually full of very many events, so the delegates who were on this tour took a break by enjoying a beautiful boat ride in the sea of Galilee as they saw the beautiful scenery on the shoreline. As they enjoyed the boat ride and all the sea could offer, the team was entertained in a traditional song to Ein Gev from Capernaum. As that was not enough excitement, the highlight of the boat ride was the uplifting message from Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

One of the interesting site visits that were made by Pastor Chris and his team was visiting Magdala. The oldest excavated synagogue is found in Magdala and it is one of the seven synagogues that are the first synagogues from the time Israel was born. In one of the synagogues, a coin that was minted in Tiberias in 29CE was discovered, which proved that the synagogue originated from the 1st century during the time of Christ’s ministry. As the Bible narrates the story of Jesus teaching in Galilee, this spot must have been one of the sites where he frequented. Additionally, we get to learn about Mary Magdalene from the four gospels as the mother of Jesus. For the locals, it is assumed that the name Mary Magdalene means “Mary from Magdala.”

Pastor Chris marks this trip to Israel as a special one because Israel is celebrating its 70th year as an independent state while still celebrating the move of the U.S Embassy to its current and desired location in Jerusalem. Pastor Chris loves visiting Israel, and this marks his third visit.
