2 Countries in Africa, Jesus Visited While Performing Miracles; Evident in Plate tectonic & Bible

Jesus, also known as Jesus Christ or Jesus of Nazareth was a first-century Jewish preacher and religious leader. He's believed to have been sent by God into this world for the redemption of our sins as christians.

On his mission in this world, Jesus visited many countries, performing miracles of all types. However, what many don't know is the continent He visited the most though the Bible keeps mentioning the country Israel.

According to the World Atlas map, Israel is one of countries located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa. It is also part of Asia. It belongs to the Asian continent, more specifically to the Middle Eastern Region. A close look at the map of the country Israel shows that the country is located on the Eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Meanwhile, technically Israel is supposed to be in the continent of Africa. According to plate tectonic theory, Israel is on the African plate and is considered one of the countries in the Northern hemisphere after Pangea broke into two, Gondwanaland and Lauresia sections.

Continental Drift Theory argues out that during the formation of the continents, part of the crust underwent horizontal movement round the globe causing the continents to slowly change their positions in relation to one another.

The theory further affirms that initially the land of Earth was joined together in one large mass or super continent called Pangaea (meaning “all lands” in Greek). Due to techtonic forces, Pangea broke into two to form the continent in the north Laurasia and the continent in the south Gondwanaland. The two large continents continued to break apart into the smaller continents that exist today.

Using this Theory, it's evident that Both Israel & Lebanon are on the continent of Africa & is technically North East Africa. This is because when we look at the Atlas map of the world, African Continental Technic Plate goes all the way up to the Anatolia Plate which is Turkey. This is widely known in the Geographical Scientific community. It is even known in Israel as they have marked in the Negev Desert Border region. However, we can argue out that it is because of the Religious & Geo Political reasons that Israel is NOT Publicly acknowledged as being on the North East Region of the African Continent.

According to the Bible, both Israel and Lebanon are among the countries that Jesus visited. This can be found in the Gospel of John in the New Testament. In fact the transformation of water into wine at the wedding at Cana (also called the marriage at Cana, wedding feast at Cana or marriage feast at Cana) was the first miracle attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of John, although none of the synoptic Gospels mentions the wedding at Cana. Qana, also spelled Cana or Kana, (Arabic: قانا) is a village in southern Lebanon located 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) southeast of the city of Tyre and 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) north of the border with Israel, in an area historically known as Upper Galilee.

It would be remembered that during his time, Jesus Christ performed many miracles by either touching, healing, or transforming countless lives. Like other events in the life of Jesus, his miracles were documented by eyewitnesses. The four Gospels record 37 miracles of Jesus, with Mark's Gospel recording the most.
