Sea of Galilee
We went to see Sea of Galilee from Nazareth. Sea of Galilee is the largest fresh water lake in Israel. We went for a special boat ride in Sea of Galilee from Ginosar. And we stayed in Tiberias. We went for a walk in the evening. One thing to make sure is that everything is closed on Shabbat that is holiday.
From there we went to Tabgha, the place where the miracle the multiplication of the loaves and fishes took place. You can still see an early mosaic of the fishes and four loaves of bread (below). The fifth loaf was the one offered on the altar. Then we visited the place along the Sea where Peter was given primacy of the Church: the one who is prime was to be the servant of all. He would be the one to hold his Church together in unity. The catch of fish described in the Gospel just before Peter comes ashore totalled 153, the number of species of fish in the Sea and the number of nations in the world. Again, the message that all belong to Church. There are Twelve Thrones placed along the shore to commemorate the Twelve Apostles.
