From the Gallicantu

Katharine and Myles Weiss in the pit at the Church of “Gallicantu” (the rooster crowing). A poignant and unusually private moment.

Hope for you and me because of God’s mercy…

This place is considered a likely site of Caiphas’ house and prison where Yeshua was kept after the garden of Gesthemane… and where Peter denied the Lord. We have been here before with streaming tourists crowding the space and vying for the pulpit. On the pulpit is a book with Psalm 88 written in dozens of languages. Pilgrims come here from all over the world to recite the age-old psalm that heralds the cost for Yeshua to be separated from His Father on the cross to come.

We read it (it will be heard in our series on Joseph) and prayed as the anointed words echoed in the empty pit. What a glorious compassionate Messiah! What a testimony of restoration in the life of Shimon Kefar (Simon Peter).  What hope for you and me because of God’s mercy…
