The Gospel of Matthew tells us that Jesus gave the Sermon on the “Mount” while Luke tells us he gave it on a plain, and so there’s a site called the Mount of Beatitudes. It’s not really a mountain, but you can see the whole of the northern Sea of Galilee and peer over into Tiberias and then to your far east you can see the Golan Heights, or the Decapolis. In the pictures today I have stuff from the Mt of Beatitudes and looking down into the slopes above Capernaum. If Jesus taught the Sermon from here, Rome was everywhere present to those who were listening.
