Did You Know?

The Jewish historian Josephus says Magdala had a population of 40,000 people and a fleet of 230 boats about 30 years after Jesus died.

One of the first major century ports on the Sea of Galilee is Magdela, which was a huge center for trade and commerce. It is most known for one very important citizen, Mary Magdalene or Mary from Magdala.

Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, “They have taken the Lord’s body out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” (John 20:1-2 NLT)

People travel from all over to experience the town where one of Jesus’ closest followers grew up. They come for all different reasons: to pray, to find peace, to celebrate. Whatever it may be there is a natural attraction that comes from this place.

She turned to him and cried out, “Rabboni!” (which is Hebrew for “Teacher”). “Don’t cling to me,” Jesus said, “for I haven’t yet ascended to the Father. But go find my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them, “I have seen the Lord!” Then she gave them his message. (John 20: 16-18 NLT)

As you spend precious moments in Magdala, rejoice in God’s love, truth and peace in your life. Mary witnessed His death and resurrection – the ultimate price He paid for us. That is truly a reason to celebrate and find gratitude in this place.

Come to Magdala not only for the rich history of one of Jesus’ closest followers, but also for adventure and unforgettable sights. The breathtaking scenery includes hiking through the Valley of Doves and up to the majestic Arbel Cliffs. Along the way, find rest in the shade of olive trees for picnics, prayer and God’s perfect peace. From the top of the cliffs you will enjoy views of the great horizon, which provides insight to the magnitude of Jesus’ ministry.

If you’re looking for adventure and a deeper, more meaningful relationship with God, this is the stop for you.
