Peter's House

Yesterday we saw Peter's house in Capernum. Just a block from the Synagogue, Peter's House became a center of devotion halfway through the 1st century ad. It was a modest 1 room home that through the years was expanded into an octogonal public worship center. Today a Roman Catholic Church literally hovers over the sight.

Just think...this is the place where Jesus laid his head in Capernum, his adopted hometown. This is the place where he healed Peter's Mother-in-law of a fever (Mark 1:30). This is the place where the sick were brought seeking healing and "the whole city was gathered together at the door" (Mark 1:33). This is the place where Jesus cast out "many demons" and set people free to follow him.

If only those stones could talk... Blessings Pastor Jeff
