The Town of Magdala and Jesus

On Monday's 700 Club, CBN News reported on the "ground breaking" discoveries (pun intended) at Magdala on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee. It's the home of Mary Magdalene.

At the site, Israeli archaeologists uncovered a first century synagogue, the first of its kind in the Galilee.

They say with near certainty that Jesus would have taught there, quite a remarkable statement.

Now the Legionaries of Christ a Catholic order, own the land and are developing it into an archaeological park, a hotel, and spiritual center.

We heard from Father Juan Solana in our original report, but here's an extended interview with Solana about the importance of Magdala and what impact it's had on him personally.
