Wordless: Verse 40

This is the cave of Banias showing god niches. “Banias” is a derivation from the word “Pan”, the Greek god of woods and fields, sheep, and shepherds. Pan, whose name means “all”, came to represent all of the gods of paganism. Here in this place of pagan gods Jesus asked his disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” Matthew 16:15

You can see more pictures of Banias here

A very cool site. Interesting to learn that this is where Peter gave his famous reply, "You are the Christ!"

Come see my WW at Splash*

Blessings,
