The Sea of Galilee has a poetic history. It is also called Lake Kinneret, as it forms a big concentration of fresh water in a very dry land. The word ‘kinnor’ in Hebrew means ‘harp’: a musical instrument producing very sweet sounds. The whole sea is said to carry the sounds of Yeshua’s teachings. Geographically, it is about twenty-one kilometres long, thirteen kilometres wide and over two hundred metres below sea level.
