On the Road to Capernum

After Jesus healed the epileptic boy

He & the disciples

traveled through Galilee

going back to Capernum

but on a different road

& when they were settled

in a house there

Jesus asked them what they

had been arguing about

& since they had been

proclaiming which of them

was the greatest

they were embarrassed

& were afraid to ask Him

what it meant that He would die

& be raised in three days

which He had spoken of on the road

because He wanted them to know

what would happen

in Jerusalem

On the Road to Capernum

Need for Prayer

Jesus walked down

from the mountain

& a crowd had gathered

waiting for his return—

here a man pleaded

for healing of his epileptic son

(the disciples who had stayed

could not heal him)

Jesus thought them all faithless

& called the demon out of the boy

who convulsed violently

& was finally rid of that spirit

 

 

The disciples questioned Jesus

why they had failed

& Jesus told them

that prayer was required

Need for Prayer

Caesarea Philippi

Start in Caesarea Philippi

twenty mile walk from Capernum

take the Roman road

to the Greek god Pan

beautiful site

at the foot of Mt Hermon

source of the Jordan River

the Cave of Pan

enshrined

where Jesus told his disciples

that he would die

& live again

Who do you say I am?

& Peter exclaimed

Son of God!

& with this revelation

the church was built

here on the crags

of Caesarea Philippi

Caesarea Philippi

Fill the Day

Fill the day

with discernment

new language

& the Spirit

create a spa

for the mind

& the skin

purification

of the pores

& receptors

of the brain

take in the sun rays

& maniacal rains

stand under heavens

& weepingly smile

My God
