The Fourth Day

The first stop on the fourth day was at the Basilica of the Loaves and Fishes. This rock is said to be the rock where Jesus fed the multitude with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes. The mosaic is from the Byzantine church built in the 5th century. After that we arrived at Beth Shen. These are newly excavated Roman Ruins. The acoustics in the theater were very good. Next stop was Jericho, then through Jerusalem into Bethlehem. We had lunch in Bethlehem and then visited the Church of the Nativity. The battery in my camera died so I don't have any pictures of Bethlehem. It was a busy day. We got back to the hotel around 8:00
