We love to learn and share the biblical significance of the modern day cities of Israel. Haifa is not just the largest and most important northern city of Israel, with a glorious setting on the slopes of Mount Carmel, surrounded by sea. It is also rich in biblical history. The Book of Kings describes the prophet Elijah ascending Mount Carmel to challenge the pagan gods. It was here that Elijah successfully discredited them and thus returned the hearts of the people to the Almighty (I Kings 18:19). Haifa’s name hints to its magical setting, stemming from the words “hof” (beach) and “yaffa” (beautiful). Wear your love of the Land with our beautiful new Israel Map Necklace.
A fortuitous discovery by two divers in the ancient port of Caesarea has led to the revelation of a large and spectacular ancient cargo of a merchant ship that sank during the late Roman period, about 1,600 years ago.
Thank you for your daily updates from the greatest country on earth. I miss Israel and can’t wait to go back. Your updates are a blessing to us here in Australia where we don’t get the “real news” on what’s happening over there! Love the photos! G_od bless Israel and all your people. Kind regards, Loretta Harvey
