Touching the “Pilate Stone” located here, which gives historical validation with the inscription of the name “Pontius Pilate” from 26-37 AD…
Taking in the significance of this Roman Amphitheater where the Apostle Paul proclaimed the Good News of Jesus Christ declaring…From one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.—Acts 17:26-27 NIV
The reality of where I am is suddenly so clear to me, and all I know to be true because of what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me in the inspired, infallible, inerrant Holy Word of God.
As I stand beside and climb on these structures, built when Jesus Christ walked on this Earth, I am filled over and over again with the awesome awareness of the Presence of God in this place.
