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

Jesus was a Jewish religious leader and preacher in the first century. He is also known as Jesus Christ and Jesus of Nazareth. Christians believe that God sent Jesus to earth to pay the price for our sins.

Jesus travelled far over the world while on his mission here, and he worked miracles in every nation. Despite the fact that Israel is repeatedly mentioned in the Bible, few people are aware that the continent of Asia was His primary destination.

Israel is one of the countries in the intersection of the European, Asian, and African continents, as shown on maps of the world. It's technically in Asia, too. It's part of Asia, specifically the Middle East area of Asia. When examining a map of Israel, it becomes clear that the country is situated on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean. Meanwhile, Israel is geographically located in Africa. After the breakup of Pangea into Gondwanaland and Lauresia, Israel was located on the African plate and is now regarded to be part of the Northern hemisphere.

According to the theory known as continental drift, a portion of the Earth's crust moved horizontally around the globe during the formation of the continents, shifting their relative positions throughout time.

According to this hypothesis, all of Earth's landmasses were once linked into a single, massive mass known as Pangaea (Greek for "all lands"). After been split in two by techtonic forces, the supercontinent Pangea is now divided into the northern Laurasia and the southern Gondwanaland. Further fragmentation of the two megacontinents into the modern-day continents ensued.

If you subscribe to this theory, then both Israel and Lebanon are in fact located in North East Africa. This is because, as can be seen on a map of the world's continents, the African Continental Technic Plate extends northward past the Anatolia Plate, which contains Turkey. The field of geographical science is aware of this. Because of the border markers set up in the Negev Desert, it is even well-known in Israel. There is an argument to be made, however, that the religious and geopolitical factors behind Israel's lack of public recognition as being in the North East Region of the African Continent are to blame.

Israel and Lebanon are both mentioned as destinations for Jesus' travels in the Bible. You may read about this in the New Testament book of John. Even though none of the synoptic Gospels mention the wedding at Cana, the turning of water into wine at the wedding at Cana (also called the marriage at Cana, wedding feast at Cana, or marriage feast at Cana) is the first miracle credited to Jesus in the Gospel of John. Cana or Kana (Arabic: ) is the name of a village in southern Lebanon, about 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) southeast of the city of Tyre and 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) north of the border with Israel in what has been traditionally referred to as Upper Galilee.

Jesus Christ touched, healed, and transformed many lives during his time on Earth, and his legacy will live on because of it. The miracles performed by Jesus were also witnessed by people and recorded by historians. Mark's Gospel lists the most miracles performed by Jesus (13), while all four Gospels include at least 37.
