Overview

The Sea of Galilee is 13 miles long, 7 miles wide, and is 650 feet below sea level. Technically this body of water should be described as a lake, rather than a sea. The Jordan River starts north of the sea and flows out of the south end down to the Dead Sea. Jesus spent most of his ministry years teaching and performing miracles around the Galilee region.
