Nazareth and Sea of Galilee Private Tour
There are many sites of interest to the Christian pilgrim in the Galilee. You can choose from those listed below to make your own personal tour.
In Nazareth, there are a number of options. Church of Annunciation, built on the site where the angel Gabriel appeared before Mary (Luke 1:26) is probably on the top of the list.
Right next to it is the Church of St. Joseph, recalling the carpentry where Jesus and Joseph worked. Among the other places of interest are the Greek Orthodox Church of St. Gabriel and the adjoining well and market in the courtyard of the Greek Catholic Church.
On the outskirts of Nazareth, offering a panoramic view of the Jezreel Valley is the Mount of Precipitation where “they lead him to the brow of the hill … that they might throw him down” (Luke 4:28-30).
Cana is the site of the first wonder or miracle performed by Jesus when He turned water into wine (John 2:1-12). This site is about half an hour from Nazareth, on the way to Tiberias and Kinneret, the Sea of Galilee.
At Tiberias, it is possible to board a wooden boat reminiscent of those used by the fishermen of yore. During a short ride on the Sea of Galilee, one can recall how Jesus calmed the stormy waters and walked on them. (Mk 4:35-41 and 6:45-52). On the shores of the Kinneret you can visit the Church and excavations at Capernaum, home of Peter, as well as the Benedictine Church commemorating the miracle of the Multiplication of the Loaves and the Fish (Mark 6:30-44) and the Franciscan Church of Mensa Christi where Jesus was revealed to the disciples for the last time (John 21).
Looking down on the shore is the Church on Mount Beatitude which commemorates the Sermon on the Mount (Mat 5).
On the southern end of the Sea of Galilee, at Yardenit, there may be an opportunity for those so desiring to be baptized in the waters of the Jordan River. (Mk 1:9-11).
Time permitting it may be possible to ascend Mount Tabor to the Church of the Transfiguration where Jesus was “transfigured before them and his face shone like the sun and his garments became white as light” (Mat 17:1-9).
At the northern end of the Sea of Galilee are the newly excavated remains of Bethsaida where Jesus healed a blind man (Mark 8:22).
Depending on the route traveled you may be driven through the plain of Armageddon (Rev 16:16), with a view of biblical Megiddo. (II Ch. 35:20-27).
