Caesarea Philippi (Banias)—Where to Stand and What to Read

The shade is refreshing and the streams lovely at Caesarea Philippi (Banias). But there are only a few shaded alcoves with seating designed for teaching.

That’s okay, because I think there’s a better place to stand to read the Bible.

Where to Stand: Ascend the stairs and stand near the railing beside the cave and beneath the sacred niches that held statues of the Greek god Pan.

What to Read: Read Matthew 16:13-17:2 and Psalm 42:7-11.
