Zippora

I found these photos from our trip to Israel l that I never blogged. They are from a city called Zippora. This ancient town is very near to Nazareth and it was suggested by our guides that it is possible Christ worked in this once wealthy city. Ornate mosaic tile floors adorn the houses, public spaces and temples, it must have been a fantastically beautiful city in the hills at one time.  As a matter of fact, this might be the city Christ referred to when he said, "a city set on a hill can not be hid."

  2. The floors are incredible! I loved Isreal! The next place I would like to go is Jordan, but it wasn't possible for us to go at the time because you have to fly into Jordan first then Isreal, but can't go the other way round.
