Discovery of the Jesus Boat in the Sea of Galilee

Yesterday my husband and me took a guided tour to the lower Galilee.  The tour was dedicated to Yigal Alon, one of our beloved heroes and founders. The tour started with the village, facing the beautiful Mount Tabor where Yigal Alon was born and where he grew up; a famous agricaltural school where he studied and ended at the Kibbutz he and his friends founded. The landscape is very beautiful and colourful this time of year.  Almond trees, the first to blossom, in white.  Red, blue and white anemonies as well as beautiful wild cyclamens adorn the green grass. The green mountain slopes are blossoming in  yellow.  A beautiful sight. The Kibbutz Ginosar is on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. ( Kinneret as it's called here.)

24 years ago, the Kinneret was in recession, owing to continuous droughts, when  a member of the Kibbutz made a stunning discovery of an ancient boat.  The process of digging out and perserving the boat was very complicated. If you are interested you can  check  internet or youtube for information in your own language about the whole process. The boat is now displayed at the Yigal Alon Ginosar Museum.  I tried to take photos but my camera did not work.  Here are photos from the internet.






Thousands of Christian pilgrims from all over the world come to see this miraculous treasure. It is believed to be Jesus' boat.  Let me tell you that for us too it was  a tremendous spiritual experience and the highlight of our tour.  There were bus load of tourists coming down from Jerusalem and Nazareth the time we were there.

This time I looked for more shells but found nothing.  I still have many from our previous visit.  Fortunately this year we have lots of rain and the Lake's level is rising a little.

I really love sharing this experience with you.  I wish it will make you want to come and see for yourself.

  1. Thank you Drora for sharing this. Yes I remember reading about this boat in an Awake magazine some time back. How amazing it must be for you to live so close to such amazing places that help you understand the past better and strengthen your faith! I would love to visit Israel 1 day! My sister has been many times as she married a lovely man from Jerusalem. Love Pearl x

  22. Drora Your trip does sound very interesting, wish I could see it. The picture of the boat reminds me of the Mary Rose - Henry V111's ship which is displayed in a muesuem in Portsmouth - its quite breath taking.
