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!
