Additional Links

Gennesaret (gen-nç'sa-rĕt), the Land of. A small strip of country on the northwest side of the Sea of Galilee. It is named only twice in Scripture. Matthew 14:34; Mark 6:53; comp. Luke 5:1. It lies along the lake for three or four miles, and extends back about a mile or more, where it is shut in by the hills. The plain was formerly very rich and fruitful, according to Josephus, and is supposed to be the scene of the parable of the sower, Matthew 13:1-8, but it is now fruitful in thorns. The banks of the lake and of the brook running from the fountain ʾAm Tâbighah are fringed with oleanders.
