Sea of Galilee (1)

Today and for the next few days we will talk about the Sea of Galilee, located in Israel. This sea is about the size of a lake — 13 miles long and 7 miles wide. The Sea of Galilee is from 80 feet to 200 feet deep.
The Sea of Galilee is called by several different names. In the Old Testament it is sometimes called Lake Kinneret. In the New Testament it is also called the Sea of Tiberias and Lake Gennesaret.
In our Bible Reading today, God told Moses the boundaries of the land of Canaan. This was the land that God had promised to give to His people, the Israelites. Verse 11a says, “From Shepham the border will go east of Ain to Riblah. The border will continue along the hills by Lake Galilee.”
Both the Old and New Testaments talk about the Sea of Galilee. And the Sea of Galilee still exists today. These facts help us to know that the Bible is true. Read the Bible today. You can depend on it to be true.
