ISRAEL PHOTOS VI -- ISRAEL REVISITED
Theoretically Nain of the Christian Bible may have been at the site of the modern town of Nin five miles south-east of Nazareth.
Luke 7:11 Soon afterwards, he went to a city called Nain. Many of his disciples, along with a great multitude, went with him. 12 Now when he came near to the gate of the city, behold, one who was dead was carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. Many people of the city were with her. 13 When the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said to her, “Don’t cry.” 14 He came near and touched the coffin, and the bearers stood still. He said, “Young man, I tell you, arise!” 15 He who was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother.
16 Fear took hold of all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and, “God has visited his people!” 17 This report went out concerning him in the whole of Judea, and in all the surrounding region.
The town is currently Muslim as indicated by the minaret. The Muslim religion stated Mohammed is the last prophet. They are not expecting any more prophets. Christianity believes God can communicate with people and they may prophesy.
