Few places in the Holy Land are as famed and celebrated as the Sea of Galilee. Ancient Jewish historian Josephus wrote that it was “wonderful in its characteristics and in its beauty.
Few places in the Holy Land are as famed and celebrated as the Sea of Galilee. Ancient Jewish historian Josephus wrote that it was “wonderful in its characteristics and in its beauty. Thanks to the rich soil there is not a plant that does not flourish there, and the inhabitants grow everything: the air is so temperate that it suits the most diverse species.” Much of the ministry of Jesus took place on its shores. The gospels of Mark (1:14–20), Matthew (4:18–22), and Luke (5:1–11) describe how Jesus recruited four of his apostles from the fishermen working on the Lake. One of Jesus’ famous teaching episodes, the Sermon on the Mount, is supposed to have been given on a hill overlooking the lake, and countless of his miracles are told to have occurred here, including his walking on water, calming the storm, the disciples and the boatload of fish, and his feeding of five thousand people. This unique, limited edition painting show the calm, picaresque lake, whose calm waters evoke not just an inner sense of peace, but are also a constant reminder of the work and legacy of Jesus Christ.
