The first place we visited was Tiberias where our guide had arranged for a Lake Galilee boat ride to Capernaum, the fishing village on the shore of the Galilee Sea.
Capernaum was the place where Jesus chose his first desciples and it was also the town he called his home. It was also the synagogue of Capernaum where he taught on Sabbath.
It was so beautiful to visit that synagogue after having only heard speaking and reading about it. The thought that Jesus has stood in this place to teach God's word made us all a bit quiet.
Today tourists can come to see the remains of the synagogue. There are also remains of the ancient Roman city that was built in Capernaum. Me and my wife loved the whole trip from Tiberias to Capernaum, the boat ride included. We returned to our hotel with an feeling of huge satisfaction and felt so privileged to be able to make this journey through Israel.
Did you enjoy Lake Galilee boat ride Israel and have you been on a holiday in Capernaum, Israel?
