Sea Of Galilee

Galilee Area, Israel

Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret) 
A sweet-water lake in the eastern Lower Galilee. On its shores are three fertile valleys: the Ginossar Valley, 
the Bethsaida Valley, and the Jordan Valley. During the Second Temple times, it was surrounded by many Jewish settlements: Tiberias, Magdala, Sussita, Capernaum. This is an important area for Christians, since many events and miracles connected with the life and ministry of Jesus took place around the lake.
