    Das versunkene Schiff

    October 21, 2019 in Israel ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Dieses Schiff wurde 🤔 1989 bei Niedrigstand des See's Genezareth gefunden und mit viel Geduld, Zeit und Aufwand geborgen. Aus verschiedenen Gegebenheiten ist sicher, das dieses Boot aus Jesu Zeiten stammt bzw. gebaut wurde....
    Es besteht aus 12 !!! verschiedenen Holzarten.

    Sea of Galilee

    April 7, 2019 in Israel ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Had a ride in an old fishing boat on Sea of Galilee and had a Breaking of Bread meeting onboard. Saw the hills where Jesus walked and taught. Museum held an restored boat from Jesus time.

    Israel

    October 23, 2017 in Israel ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    We had a rest day today and bypassed the itinerary. We got up to date with all of our washing; had an afternoon nap; explored the museum onsite at the kibbutz - Galilee Miracles Centre & enjoyed a walk along the shores of the Sea of Galilee. It was wonderful to just rest & catch our breath.
    The museum was fascinating & contained a boat found, not far from the kibbutz, in 1986 that has been dated to the first century BC!
    The boat was over 8m long & was made using 12 different types of wood. It was found after the waters had receded, during a severe drought & the tale of its excavation & restoration was really interesting.

    Cruise on the Sea of Galilee

    November 25, 2019 in Israel ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    After seeing it from the top of the Mount of the Beatitudes, we are finally on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. If the Dead Sea is over 400 metres below sea level, here we are not much higher: 200 meters below sea level!
    As already mentioned, the lake is partly made of freshwater and partly of saltwater, but is getting increasingly salinised due to evaporation, high usage of its fresh water and the sal water springs at its bottom.

    After a quick stop at a ridiculously expensive souvenir shop, it's finally time to board a boat and start our cruise on the sacred waters of the lake, where - according to the tales of the Apostoles - Jesus walked over the water and granted a miracolous fishing.
    Despite the religious significance of the place and the not so modest name of our vessel ("Jesus's boat" !!!), our cruise turns out to be more a disco party than a meditation session. Nevertheless, we are granted an award for "sailing and praying on Jesus's boat". Not sure if we should be proud of that... 🙄

    Ancient Galilee Boat

    May 11, 2019 in Israel ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

    The Ancient Galilee Boat is an ancient fishing boat from the 1st century AD. It was discovered buried in the shore in 1986 by fishermen from Kibbutz Ginosar. It took 12 days to excavate the boat from the mud without damaging it and is now displayed in a Kibbutz Ginosar museum.
    Kibbutzim, meaning gathering or clustering, is a collective community in Israel that was traditionally based on agriculture. When the first Jews returned to Israel in the early 1900s, they grouped together and shared everything they had (just like in Acts). It was a necessity to survive. Their philosophy was to "work as much as you can and take as little as needed". Present-day, there are few still in operation like the Kibbutz Ginosar.
