This map is a close-up of the land of Israel (Palestine) during the Life of Jesus. It shows the places where the various events of the Gospels took place.
This map is a view of the Galilean ministry of Jesus Christ and includes the location of other cities such as: Serepta, Bethsaida, Capernaum, Sea of Galilee, Nazareth, Tyre, Sidon, Samaria, Lydda, Emmaus, Bethlehem, Judea, Raising of Lazarus from the dead, Ephraim, Joppa, Jerusalem, Dead Sea, and Hebron.
The Sea of Galilee is mentioned in The Bible by 3 other names:
1. The Sea of Kinnereth (or Chinnereth), from its harp-like shape.
2. The Sea of Tiberias.
3. The Lake of Gennesareth.
Much of the ministry of Jesus Christ, and numerous of His miracles took place in the area of the Sea of Galilee.
From the fishermen of the Sea of Galilee came at least four of The Twelve Apostles - Peter, Andrew, James and John. Jesus stilled the raging storm on the Sea of Galilee that was about to swamp their boat. Jesus, and Peter to a limited extent, walked on the water there.
Near the shores of the Sea of Galilee is where Jesus fed the five thousand men, women and children from the miraculous multiplication of five loaves of bread and two fish. Mary of Magdala, the first human to see and speak with the Savior after His resurrection, was from the town of Magdala on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee.
