"WHY ARE YOU SO FRIGHTENED,
YOU MEN OF LITTLE FAITH?"
MATTHEW 8

 

Bible References for Galilee

The Galilee is lush (at least in winter and spring) and filled with lots of water. 
Jesus' public ministry was centered around the Sea of Galilee.  At least once, he was farther north, by the snow-capped Mount Hermon, on the outskirts of Caesarea Philippi. The passages below are a suggested beginning for studying Jesus' Galilean ministry or to prepare for your first pilgrimage.
