3rd Sunday after Epiphany

26 January 2020

The Sea of Galilee, also known as Lake Tiberias, is a freshwater lake in Israel. It is the lowest freshwater lake on Earth. The lake is fed partly by underground springs, but its main source is the Jordan River. Many of the miracles performed by Jesus occurred in and around the Sea of Galilee, such as walking on water and the miraculous catch of fish. It is also where Jesus called to Simon Peter and Andrew with the words, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19)
