Nain – Israel Tour

Posted by on Sep 8, 2010 in Site of the Week - LDS Church History Tour, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Early in his ministry, Jesus and his disciples traveled to Nain, a small town south of Nazareth and very near to Shunem.  When they arrived, they saw a funeral procession for a young man who was the only son of a widow. “And he came and touched the bier and they that bare him stood still.  And he said, Young Man, I say unto thee, Arise.  And he that was dead sat up and began to speak.  And he delivered him to his mother!” Luke 7:14-15.  Elisha was very highly revered in Nain because he had raised an only son from death centuries before and delivered him to his grieving mother.  This was in Shuneum, less than two miles away.
