How Geocaching Works

A small cache in the location where Jesus allegedly delivered the "Sermon on the Mount". It is part of the Jesus Footsteps cache series.
Jesus spent a big portion of his life in the Galilee. His miracles and sermons in several locations in the Galilee are well documented in the New Testament. This cache series commemorates some of them, in honor of the pilgrims and other visitors who frequent these unique places.
Mount of Beatitudes, just north of the Sea of Galilee, is known as the traditional location where Jesus delivered his "Sermon on the Mount". In Hebrew, the place is known as Har Ha-Osher (הר האושר, mount of happiness). A beautiful Franciscan Church was erected here in the 1930s. Pope John Paul II celebrated a Mass at this site in March 2000.
A small loc-n-loc container is hidden near the main entrance to the church grounds, just off the road. Currently, there is NO writing tool in the cache, so please bring one. The cache started with a TB and several trinkets.
