Incredible Ruins Above the Sea of Galilee Connected to the Ministry of Jesus

Video from Drive Thru History

"When the darkness of night falls, it creeps around the world from east to west. In the same manner, the first beams of morning sunlight sweep around the world from east to west. Thus, the first area to slip into darkness is the first to catch those glimmering rays of sunrise.

This simple illustration from nature gives some understanding of an Old Testament truth that is fulfilled in the New Testament concerning the ministry of Jesus: It began in the area of Galilee. Sometimes we fail to consider that the great majority of the more than three years of Jesus’ service was public ministry on and around the Sea of Galilee. It was only during the last year of His ministry that He moved from there to Judea, Jerusalem, and finally to Calvary.

The Prophecy

The book of Isaiah prophesied that the gospel would come first to Galilee and, in particular, to the area west and east of the sea:

Nevertheless, the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, in Galilee of the nations. The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light; they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined (Isa. 9:1–2).." from the article: Jesus’ Ministry on the Sea of Galilee
