It was here that the first Gentile, Cornelius the Centurion, and his household were baptized. Our tour continues to Megiddo and the Valley of Armageddon. This will be a highlight of our journey since a worship service will be held in this prophetic spot. We will then visit the historical military fortress that controlled the highway between Egypt and Mesopotamia, and learn how this famous hill was used in the wars of antiquity.
