The Mediterranean Sea, Lower and Central Galilee

Sea of Galilee and Upper Galilee

We drive up to Banias National Park (see left) to the waterfall at Caesarea Philippi where it was revealed to Peter that Jesus is the Christ and Son of the Living God. We travel to Mount Bental then onto the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus preached one of his most important sermons and we read from Matthew 5. A short walk onto Tabgha brings us to the shores of the Sea of Galilee where Jesus called the disciples to follow Him. After lunch we visit Capernaum where Jesus lived for almost three years of ministry and is said to have healed Peter’s mother-in-law. Then we drive to Kibbutz Ginosar for a boat trip on the Sea of Galilee where we hold a short communion service. We also view the 2,000 year old boat. Overnight at kibbutz Mirza.
