This stream is one of several that run out of the cliff at Caesarea Philippi. Originally, the springs ran from the cave known as the Grotto of Pan. The presence of a religious cult here is probably due to these springs of fresh water.Peter’s confession that Jesus was “the Christ, the Son of the Living God” (Matt. 16:16) and Jesus’ reference to his own “living water” are in stark contrast to the lifeless idols worshiped here. This flowing water is a picture of the life that Jesus alone can give.
