Mount Tabor

From Banias/Caesarea Philippi we then went to Mount Tabor which is the Mount of Transfiguration - just as Jesus and his disciples did though, not having the advantage of a 21st century bus, it took them six days.  It was a very different mode of transport, but fascinating to follow the same chronology.

There we were able to visit the chapel there which has depictions of Jesus and also of Elijah and Moses who were with him at that point.  In order to get there we could only take the bus so far and then had to get on a mini-bus which took us up to the top of the mountain - with its tremendous views.

It was indeed a place of transcendence.
