This marvelous lake is formed by the descent of the Jordan River and to the east it's flanked by the Golan mountains, and to the north and west by Lower Galilee. The lake is 212 meters below the Mediterranean Sea's level. It's 21 kilometers long and 12 meters wide. Its waters are fresh and blue and are teeming with fish. Its sudden storms and high tides have made this lake famous, especially in Christian history like the appearances of Jesus Christ with the loaves of bread and fish. Throughout his public life we've seen His works on the shores of this lake. This is also where Christ walked on water, etc.
