Det blir nå lagt betre til rette for vandringar i Jesu fotspor i Galilea, blant anna gjennom Tsippori, der dette biletet med dei enorme kaktusane er tatt.
Den israelske avisa Haaretz skriv i samband med det foreståande pavebesøket i Nasaret:
On other hand, the “Jesus trail” – a “Galilee path that supposedly traces the route of Jesus” – will be ready in time for the visit. “The 65-kilometer trail was inspired by pilgrimage trails including the Camino de Compostela in Spain. It is designed to let pilgrims and tourists experience biblical stories as Jesus did – by foot … ‘This is the first route in Israel marked specifically for foreign visitors, and the first one focused on historical events,’ says Gili Grimbaum, the SPNI route marking coordinator … The trail attracted several hundred tourists even before the marking was complete. Many were accompanied by a voluntary guide from Nazareth. Hikers included travel writers, tourists, cross-border walkers, long distance runners, priests, pilgrims and pastors, who held prayers along the trail … [David] Landis and [Maoz] Inon [the project’s initiators] say they believe that as many as 5,000 people will walk the trail in 2009, and hope to see 100,000 annually by 2019. A map of the route is available online at www.jesustrail.com.” The sites include Nazareth, Tzippori (Sephoris), Kfar Kana, the Golani junction, Nebi Shueyeb, Wadi Hamam, Capernaum, and the Mount of Beatitudes.
