Highlights on Nazareth Village
Upon entering the re-constructed 1st Century synagogue, and after experiencing the functions of daily life at the time of Jesus, it is very clear to the visitor that Jesus was an integrated part of his social framework and a Jew rooted in his country. The New Testament describes how he visited a synagogue just like this every Sabbath, and how he referred to the scriptures as the word of God, almost a generation before the New Testament was written. Being introduced to the practical facts of Jesus’ life, at the place where they actually took place, truly is the highlight of a visit to Israel for many Christians.
