Caesarea Maritime - Biblical Experience

Did you know that Herod the Great built Caesarea Maritime? This city that Herod the Great built became the place where Cornelius, Peter, and Paul preached the Gospel.

In the book of Acts chapter 10 Cornelius and his household receive the Holy Spirit. Later in Acts 24 Felix and Shaul / Paul interact and eventually, this is the port that Shaul / Paul sails for Rome.

"There was a man in Caesarea named Cornelius, a Roman army officer in what was called the Italian Regiment. 2 He was a devout man, a “God-fearer,” as was his whole household; he gave generously to help the Jewish poor and prayed regularly to God. 3 One afternoon around three o’clock he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, “Cornelius!” 4 Cornelius stared at the angel, terrified. “What is it, sir?” he asked. “Your prayers,” replied the angel, “and your acts of charity have gone up into God’s presence so that he has you on his mind" - Acts 10:1-5
