Swimming in Galilee, You See a Lot (video)

The “Sea” of Galilee is more like a lake. You can see across to the other side even on hazy days.

To Bible students, the Sea of Galilee is famous for the time Jesus spent there. He lived in Capernaum for a time. He chose many of His Apostles along the north shore. He occasionally crossed the water by boat, and by foot on one miraculous occasion. He performed countless miracles and spoke many of His most famous words, all in a remarkably small area.

This short video from my 2012 trip illustrates the close proximity of some sites associated with Jesus’ ministry. Enjoy!

    Hello! My name is Bill Irby and I have just returned from a 12 day trip to Israel with Rodney Cloud. Incredible. I preach in Athens, AL at the West Hobbs Street Church of Christ. You have a very fine site.

    Wow, I don’t know how I’d be able to stay so calm knowing how much important history was all around me at a moment like that. Really great video, looks like fun.
