Evening in Tiberias

Lido boat 1.jpg

The city of Tiberias is located on the western edge of the Sea of Galilee. It is a city of the weekends and holidays. In high season, the waterfront is full of tourists and gawkers and beachgoers. Many of them purchase excursions and ride on the waves to the thump of the techno beat.

From my window I watch them load and unload.

Tiberias was founded in the years of Jesus’s youth by Herod Antipas. While Jesus clearly operated in the vicinity, there is no biblical mention of him ever visiting the city.


If you are interested in experiencing Tiberias, Galilee, and the biblical Heartland for yourself, consider joining us next year. We have open seats for several trips in 2020 and 2021. We are booking new groups for 2022. Shoot me a note at markziese@gmail.com or see our full list of study-travel opportunities at the link here.
