Some crucial history here. Thank you, Leon Mauldin!

Gamla was a Jewish village in the time of Jesus, though not mentioned in the Bible. It was located on the eastern side of the Sea of Galilee, in the southern Golan Heights. Archaeologists have determined that the date of occupation of this settlement goes back to the Early Bronze Age, pre-dating Abraham by some centuries. Our photo here shows Gamla at center. In distance, far right you can see the Sea of Galilee.

Michael Jeshurun 

When presented with the method of salvation of God’s people in the scriptures whether it be Lydia or Paul, the haters of Sovereign Grace and the Total Depravity of man always retort saying, “Oh but those were stray instances you are quoting. Yes the Lord may have opened Lydia’s heart (Acts 16:14) to believe, but the rest of us are required to open the door of our own hearts and accept Christ! Yes the Lord arrested the Christ hating Saul of Tarsus and made him a Christian almost against his will, but the rest of us are required to choose Christ by exercising our own free-will!”
