The Sea of Galilee

A boat ride on the Sea of Galilee is one of the highlights of a trip to Israel for most Christian tourists. They enjoy seeing the lake and recognizing the places they have read about so much in their Bible study: Tiberias, Magdala, the Mount of Beatitudes, Capernaum. They reflect on the accounts of Jesus walking on the water and stilling the tempest, etc.

My wife had someone shooting photos while I was pointing out sites of interest along the shores of Galilee. I think I was pointing out the possible location of the account of the swine rushing down the steep bank into the sea (Matthew 8:28 – 9:1).

Luke calls the Sea of Galilee a lake (Luke 5:1-2; 8:22-23,33).

Now Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, and the crowd was pressing around him to hear the word of God. (Luke 5:1 NET)
