Very Very Cool: A Resort In Galilee Rises Where Jesus May Have Taught

What a fabulous story, and an incredible opportunity for Israeli tourism and for Christian pilgrimage. 


Via BCF: 

Read the whole thing. Just amazing stuff.

A long time ago, when I did freelance writing in Israel, I was the first writer to do a story on the "Jesus Boats" up by Kibbutz Ginosaur in the Galilee. It was a short story that was distributed through a relatively primitive 'wire' service from Israel. It went "viral" before there was "viral". The Spanish translations especially were a huge hit.

That was in the days of PAPER and PHOTOGRAPHS as well if you can imagine. I think I still have a hard copy somewhere, which I should scan and upload sometime just for fun.
