BULLETIN FOR SUNDAY AUGUST 13, 2017

We welcome you today with opened hearts and hands. May you be blessed as you worship with us.

A team of archaeologists may have located the home of three of Jesus’ disciples. It was found in a lost Roman imperial city off of the Sea of Galilee. Researchers from Kinneret College believe they have found the Roman city of Julias, which was built as part of the town of Bethsaida. This is identified in John 1:44 as the hometown of Philip, Andrew, and Peter. The team of archaeologists said that the multi-layered site discovered on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, in the Bethsaida Valley Nature Reserve, is the exact location according to a report in the Israeli news paper- Haaretz, last Sunday.

The report states that the key discovery is that of an advanced Roman-style bathhouse. This fact, according to the paper, indicates that a city was definitely there and not just a fishing village. The excavators found walls with gilded glass tesserae for a mosaic, an indication of a wealthy and important church. Kinneret College said in a statement that it is widely believed that a church used to be on the former site of the Apostles’ home, thus adding evidence that the recent find is legitimate. “The discovery of dozens of golden glass mosaics in the previous season and the present season attests to the fact that the church was an important and magnificent place,” stated the college. “A Christian traveler of the eighth century CE notes that in the house of Tsaida the church is in honor of Peter and Andrew — two of Jesus’ apostles.”

This is not the first major find by researchers connected to Kinneret College regarding the New Testament. Last August, researchers under Motti Aviam found a first century synagogue near Mount Tabor. This is the first synagogue discovered in the rural part of the Galilee and it confirms historical information about the New Testament, which says that Jesus preached at synagogues in Galilean villages.

We thank God for these archeological discoveries that are confirming scripture. Let us pray that persons who do not know Jesus will be convinced about the truth of God’s Word upon hearing about them.

To Do List From God

I ran my life in search of worldly things;
My time and will were firmly in control.
I thought I had no need for what God brings;
I gave no heed to murmurs from my soul.
“You’re planning, doing all the time,” it said,
“But something else is missing deep inside.
Your mind is whirling, but your heart is dead,
So turn to God and let go of your pride.”

I did, and God said, “Here’s My plan for you:
Give your life to Me, and just let go.
Have faith and pray, and read the Bible through,
And you’ll have blessings more than you can know.”

So simple, yet it brings me perfect peace,
Living life for God the way I should.
Direction, purpose, fullness and release—
Life with God is very, very good.

-By Joanna Fuchs
The Christian poem above, To Do List From God, is a Christian verse that focuses on how much better and more peaceful life is when we move away from worldly things and closer to Jesus. Christian poems often talk about the transition to Christianity. This poem for Christians is for those who remember what their lives were like before being saved. To Do List from God is a Christian poem about Christians, also a Christian rhyme, that reveals how the stresses of the world and our need to plan and control things can make life difficult. When we turn it all over to God, life becomes so much more peaceful and satisfying, as this Christian poem says.
