Sea of Galilee

The Sea of Galilee is a freshwater lake in northern Palestine. It is approximately twenty kilometres long, twelve kilometres wide, and about two hundred metres below sea level. In Bible times it was known also as the Sea of Chinnereth (Numbers 34:11), the Lake of Gennesaret (Luke 5:1) and the Sea of Tiberias (John 6:1; John 6:16-25; John 21:1). (For details see PALESTINE, sub-heading ‘Upper Jordan and Sea of Galilee’.)
