Tiberias Lake, also the Sea of Tiberias, the Sea of Galilee, Lake of Gennesaret, or Lake Kinneret is the largest freshwater lake in Israel. According to the tradition, the Mount of Beatitudes is the place where Jesus gave his important sermon on the mountain to the multitude that assembled to see and hear him.

    Interesting page! I enjoyed the videos. I wonder if people visiting Israel are inspired to become more spiritual. I think I would be.
