For a short time, I am changing the format of “Listening to Hear” for you to enjoy the pictures we took when visiting Israel in May.
“When Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, he returned to Galilee…and lived by the lake.” Matthew 4:12,13 (NIV)
Our timeshare was in Tiberius and our balcony overlooked the Sea of Galilee. We were told that Herod had a large palace here during the time of Christ and it was where John the Baptist was imprisoned.
The sea is about the size of a large lake, seven miles wide and fourteen miles long. Most of Jesus’ miracles and teachings took place right around this area. Like many who have gone to the Holy Land, the experience has made the scriptures lifelike and real as we visited many of the towns and locales described in His Word – what a meaningful experience! This picture was taken at 5:30 am of the sunrise over the Sea of Galilee.
