Tiberias / Sea Of Galilee
Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves

Tiberias / Sea of Galilee / Capernaum / Mount of Beatitudes

This will be an exciting day in Galilee. We will depart from the Roman hot springs resort city of Tiberias via boat ride across the Sea of Galilee to Capernaum (John 6:24) to visit the ancient ruins of the first century synagogue where Jesus preached (Matthew 4:13-17). Then on to the Mt. of Beatitudes where Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) and to Tabgha – the chapel dedicated to the multiplication of the loaves and fishes (Mark 6:34-44). We will then proceed to upper Galilee and the site of Peter’s confession (Matthew 16:16) at Caesarea Philippi and the present day Golan Heights where Israel, Lebanon and Syria come together. We will follow the fresh mountain waters of Mt. Hermon to the Sea of Galilee and to the outlet passage at the southern tip of the Sea. We will stop at the beautiful Pilgrims Park at the Jordan River to conduct a baptismal service for whoever wants to be baptized before returning to our hotel in Nazareth.
