One of the most loved sights of the Gospel’s many locations is the Sea of Galilee. Whether we recall Jesus walking over its stormy seas to calm the disciples’ fear, or directing them to cast their nets ‘on the right side’, this was a place where the Master preached, taught and healed.
BibleRoad’s video blog is an invitation to join us as we navigate its calm waters on a magnificent Fall day. You’ll get a feel for the surrounding hills and views as we sail on the northern end of what is actually a very large lake in the Galilee region of Israel. An experience always to be cherished, you will witness one of the crew casting a net similar to what the disciples would have used, gleaming in the bright sun as it’s weighted net fell below the water line seeking a catch.
Please feel free to share your insights on the below (and share this post with fellow travelers). We love hearing from you.
A fellow traveler,
I would love to visit the Holy Land. When is your next tour or are there tour operators that you would recommend?
Excellent encapsulation of the numerous relationships of Jesus’ message and ministry in Galilee and with the Sea. Nice map — inspired me to dig one out and do a good review of Jesus’ Galilean ministry. Thanks, Madie.
Hi Madelon…Thank you! Beautiful video. Have always wondered what that “Sea” looked like!
What a treat to see this lovely body of water that is so often in our lesson. I love getting oriented as to the places Jesus was in relation to the Sea of Galilee. Maddie, you looked as if you were standing ON the water. Made me smile! Thank you!
Thank you Tawny. Glad you enjoy and just fyi — I’m definitely IN the water! 🙂
How wonderful to actually see this site which is so rich in biblical history! Thanks for sharing a range of facts. For instance, I did not realise it was so much lower than sea level. Seeing the net being flung out with such precision was a delight.
I met you in Australia last year. I may be interested in doing the trip in 2018. I would love some details when you have them. Thanks.
Thank you so much for your concise and clear explanation of the Sea of Galilee area and the historical background which enhances our understanding of the area and Jesus’ works and significant lessons he taught there. It is a treat to see these videos. Keep ’em coming! 🙂
