Genesareth

(Hebrew: kinnor, a harp)

Fertile district of Palestine, on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee (Mark 6), often called the Lake of Genesareth; the scene of the public ministry of Our Lord. He preached in nearly every village and hamlet. Capharnaum, where He walked on the water (John 6), and healed the ruler's son (4), was located there.
