We walked on the Sea of Galilee

We started the day by taking a boat ride from Tiberias to Kibbutz. We then went by bus to St. Peters Primacy, which is where we walked on the Sea of Galilee (only because the Sea is low). This location is referenced in the bible, John 21, where Jesus tells the fishermen to put their nets on the other side of the boat.

We then went to Capernaum where Jesus lived and performed his Galilean miracles. We also saw remnants of Peter's home from the 1st Century and a synagogue from the 4th Century, which was built on the 1st Century's foundation.

Next we went by bus to lunch in Kibbutz, which is where a 1st century boat was preserved, that Jesus and the disciples would have used.

We left there and went to the Church of Multiplication where Jesus fed the 5000 with 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread. The church is located in Tabgha.

From there we went to Korazin, which is mentioned in Matthew 11:21. The city is a part of the Evangelical Triangle, which is where most of Jesus’ ministry took place. Here we saw the remnants of a late 4th Century city.

We then went to the Mount of Beatitudes, which is where Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount.

The day ended by us heading back to the hotel, where we had dinner and enjoyed spending time together. We survived the 90+ degree day!
