Christian Site: The Sea Of Galilee
The Sea of Galilee
Jesus of Nazareth delivered most of is sermons and performed many
of his miracles on the shores of Lake Kinneret (the Sea of Galilee).
Kfar Nahum, or Capernaum, was the home of Peter and his wife.
Jesus joined them there often, and it became the center for his
Galilean ministry. At the site: a 4th-century chapel and synagogue,
along with a 5th-century church.
St. Peter’s Primacy is located on the beach where Jesus breakfasted
with a few disciples after the Resurrection (John 21:1-23).
Miracle at the Church of Loaves and Fishes: After preaching all day
on this very spot, Jesus fed thousands of hungry people with two fish
and five loaves of bread.
