My Intro to Israel, Day 5, Scene 8

Our next stop was Kfar Nahum (Capernaum) National Park in the northern part of the Sea of Galilee. The Church of St. Peter's House, a Roman Catholic church is located inside the park, as well other archaeological sites. The Church of St. Peter's House is a modern structure built right on top of the site of St. Peter’s house by the Israeli "Solel Boneh” construction company at the end of the 1980s. Its modern shape pays homage to the ancient churches which existed here before, such as an octagonal Byzantine church from the 5th century CE. Thus the Church of St. Peter's House is also octagonal and it stands on concrete pillars above the ancient remains. As befitting its location, the Church of St. Peter's House is filled with motifs that are connected with the Sea of Galilee. The Church of St. Peter's House is reminiscent in its shape of a fishing boat and on its walls are featured fish, waves and fishing nets, as well as scenes from the life of St. Peter.

Aziz Petrus Evi Kilisesi
İsrail’e Önsözüm, Gün 5, Sahne 8

Bir sonraki durağımız Celile Gölü'nün kuzey kesiminde Kfar Nahum (Capernaum) Milli Parkı idi. Parkın içinde Aziz Petrus Evi Kilisesi, bir Roma Katolik kilise, ve diğer arkeolojik siteler yer almaktadır. Aziz Petrus Evi Kilisesi 1980'lerin sonunda İsrail "Solel Boneh" inşaat şirketi tarafından St Peter evinin sitenin tam üstüne inşa edilmiş modern bir yapıdır. Modern şekli, M.S. 5. yüzyıldan sekizgen Bizans kilisesi gibi buradaki önceki antik kiliselere saygı gösterir. Dolayısıyla Aziz Petrus Evi Kilisesi de sekizgendir ve antik kalıntılar üzerinde beton sütunlar üzerinde durur. Yerine yakışırşekilde, Aziz Petrus Evi Kilisesi Celile Gölü’ne bağlı motifler ile doldurulmuştur. Aziz Petrus Evi Kilisesi bir balıkçı teknesi şeklini andırır ve duvarlarında Aziz Petrus’un hayatından balık, dalgalar ve balık ağları gibi sahneler bulunur.
