The beautiful Lake Galilee is Israel's largest freshwater lake. Many of Jesus' missionary sacs are here, so it has the reputation of Jesus' second hometown. Nowadays, it is a leisure and holiday destination for Israelis. The clear lake water is rich in fish, and it attracts many waterfowls. It is a rare sight in the Middle East where water resources are scarce.
In the four New Gospels of the Bible, most of Jesus' ministry is in Galilee, so Christians who travel to Israel will definitely come to the Sea of Galilee in addition to the city of Jerusalem.
When we arrived at the shores of Lake Galilee, it was already 5:30 pm. In the evening glow, the lake surface is like a mirror, just like a gem is scattered into the lake, and there is a dazzling blue light, which makes people unable to leave. The N sailing boats in the twilight are heading for the setting sun, and the soft waves scattered in the lake are silently scattered. This scenery is breathtaking and I hope that time will be still at this moment.
The Sea of Galilee is the water of God's life given to Israel. It is set in the valley between the Galilee Mountains and the Golan Heights, and the rolling mountains surround the blue waters. The Jordan River collects the snow from the Mount Hermon Mountain. From north to south, it is like a silver chain that connects the two brilliant stones of the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea.
The former Galilee region was a small village with nowhere to be. It was the place where Jesus lived when he was a child and his hometown. In the fourth century AD, Jesus moved to Capernaum and began to preach here.
Today's Capernaum has become a ruin, but it is not difficult to see its glory. There is still a lingering atmosphere left by Jesus. From 1968 to 1986, two French archaeology buildings were built here to discover the remains of a synagogue. The magnificent stone craftsmanship includes the chandelier's imaginary motifs, the golden light pattern, and the Corinthian style. Architecture, which has been proven to be the first century architecture, they believe this is where Jesus taught people.
The Sea of Galilee is the world's lowest freshwater lake and the second lowest lake after the Dead Sea. The Arabs called it "Taibarai Lake" because the west side of the lake is the famous tourist city of Tiberias; the Jews called it "Kennere Lake", meaning harp, because the lake resembles a harp; In the Bible, it is called "The Sea of Chennai."
After watching the scenery of the Sea of Galilee, we went on and came to the kibbutz. Kibbutz, in Hebrew, means community settlement. In 1909, a large number of Jews from Russia moved to Israel.
They were influenced by socialist ideals, and the first independent farm was established in the Galilee Lake region of northern Palestine at that time, and communist production and distribution in the Judas desert. As night falls, the festive atmosphere is getting stronger.
There are also many utopian collective farms around the Sea of Galilee, where cooperatives are implemented. They are a collective society with no private property and practice do-it-yourself, equality and cooperation in all areas of production, consumption and education, namely Israel. The kibbutz.
Catch up with the local Pentecost, a festival to celebrate the harvest of wheat. A cooperative family is concentrated in making garlands and playing games, which is very lively.
