The images I share here come from my heart. They are not to be reproduced without my express written permission.

Church of the Primacy of Peter


The Church of the Primacy of Peter is a small chapel on the shore of the Sea of Galilee in Tagbha, Israel. The church incorporates part of a 4th century church, and it marks the location of the third post-Resurrection appearance of Jesus. (See John 21.)

Jesus said, "Feed my sheep."
The Sea of Galilee viewed from the church


Mensa Christi: the Table of Christ... It is on this rock that Jesus served his disciples a breakfast of fish.


Feed my lambs... Take care of my sheep... Feed my lambs...

  29. Inspiring images. It is almost too much to imagine that we still have the opportunity to walk the same ground as the Son of God. But some day we will see Him face to face. Have a blessed week.

  34. Sue, How cool to gaze upon the sea of Galilee! The waters that Christ calmed during a storm with His disciples. I love the statue depicting Jesus' command for His followers to feed (spiritually) His people. Of course, Christ feed the multitude spiritually and physically. Can you imagine what it was like in those days? It always mesmerizes me to think about others being able to walk where Jesus walked and to see the places mentioned in the Bible. Thanks for sharing your journey through pictures with everyone in Blogosphere! Have a happy and blessed 2017!

I would love to just touch it and feel the history running through me. Ahhhh it that rock could talk. Such stories it could tell I'm sure. Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos. I miss you stopping by.

    1. No, Becky, there was no admission charge. Some of the places had long lines, but all were worth the wait. It was a very meaningful trip from start to finish.
