This was my view of the Sea of Galilee on my second morning in Israel. When I read my Bible that morning, I experienced something I had never experienced before. As I read the stories I could see, smell, hear, and feel what I was reading about. I no longer had to imagine what the Sea of Galilee and other places looked like. In fact, I had left the sliding door of my room open all night so I could hear the soothing lapping sound of the waves where Jesus said “Peace be still.” The peace and safety I felt while I was there made me so happy I had dismissed my fears of visiting Israel.
Later that morning, our group rode across the Sea of Galilee to Capernaum. Here our guide, Tsion Ben-david, took out a map and helped us understand the geography of the area.
