Artist Comments: The Sea of Galilee is a large freshwater lake located in northeast Israel, between the Golan Heights and the Galilee region. The Jordan River is its main source of water. The lake is approximately 13 miles long and 8 miles wide.
This painting of a famous Bible place was inspired by my love of God’s word and readings about Jesus in the Bible. I love Israel because God’s chosen people live there. I have never visited Israel, however, I would love to go there someday. This painting was composed using a reference photo from the “Pictorial Library of Bible Lands”. The photographer, Todd Bolen, graciously gave me permission to use his photos for any of my Bible land paintings.
According to Matthew 4:13-22, this historic biblical location is where Jesus began His ministry and called His first disciples. This passage tells us Jesus left Nazareth and went to Capernaum. While walking along the banks of the Sea of Galilee Jesus called the first four of His disciples Simon called Peter, Andrew, James and John.
Other scripture references about Capernaum: Matthew 8:5, 11:23, 17:24; Mark 1:21, 2:1, 9:33; Luke 4:23, 4:31, 7:1, 10:15; John 2:12, 4:46, 6:17, 6:24, 6:59. You can easily look up these scriptures here.
