Caesarea Philippi

You know, there just isn't really much to say about this place aside from what is in my captions and what is in the Bible. We drove a gazillion hours (maybe 2?) on teeny mountainous roads though what used to be Syrian territory. Most of us were sick to our stomachs and still jet lagged and potentially wondering what we'd gotten ourselves into. So I'll give you a bit of scripture to go with your viewing pleasure.

The Temple of Pan...Yippee
 "When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, 'Who do men say that I am?'
It's got nothin' on Petra, just FYI.
 "They replied, 'Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.'
 "'But what about you?' he asked. 'Who do you say I am?'
The beginning of the Jordan River
 "Simon Peter answered, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.'" (Matthew16:13-16)

And a few ruins, for good measure.
