Here the Lord Jesus conveys the Blessed Word to his followers. This church is on the shores of the Dead Sea with beautiful scenery. At the entrance to the Church there is a beautiful garden with a quote of the Blessed Word written on several stones. This church looks different from other churches because it is made of black stone. The door and window frames are white. This color blend makes the church look beautiful

Another must see stop for the Christian Traveler to Israel. This is the site where Jesus preached his sermon. The place is just beautiful and once again you can visualize from the Bible text and be physically present at the place where our Savior walked and taught those who follow Him... Sea of galilee view from here is beautiful. Beautiful gardens are with flowers

The traditional site of Jesus's Sermon on the Mount, it is set on a hilltop garden. The Church of the Beatitudes, built in the late 1930's is simple, yet moving. Since we had a Franciscan friar with us, we were able to have a special mass. The terrace offers a great view of the Sea of Galilee. There is a very nice gift shop near the entrance, with all profits going to the Franciscan Sisters for up-keep of the property. Be advised that the van ride, furnished by their own transportation company, is very winding and a little scary. But, this is a beautiful spot, and a little excitement in the ascent is worthwhile.

What a great peaceful place to sit and reflect on the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus taught his disciples here, which is recorded in the 5th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew.
The Church is nice to walk through, but the beauty of this place is the spectacular view of the Sea of Galilee. Ironically the best view is from the bus parking lot!
