The Sea of Galilee is shaped like a harp. It's just 21 kilometers long, 13 kilometers at its widest and lies 200 meters below sea level, with an average depth of just 25 meters.
In the first century, there were over 200 towns and villages around the Sea of Galilee, and over 250 boats fished its waters. The Galilee was a thriving agricultural region and was the setting for much of the mission of Jesus Christ.
In Nazareth, Capernaum, Bethsaida, Tiberias, Tabgha, Magdala, at the Mount of Beatitudes and along the Jordan River, Keith Garner explores the ministry of Jesus in the context of first century life, explains biblical stories, and considers the questions asked of Jesus by his followers and adversaries, and which challenge the Christian faith today.
