Israel has long been known for being the Land of the Bible and holds many spots that are infused with religious and historical meaning. These sites should not be thought of as a complete list, but rather as a small and essential taste of the highlights the country has to offer when combined with its rich biblical history. This list is comprised of places and sites that can be found across the land and in some way be referenced back to a verse in either the New Testament or the Bible.
A visit to Israel would not be complete without a stop at the Sea of Galilee, and this is especially true for those looking to learn from Jesus at the very site where much of his ministry took place. Four of Jesus’ apostles were recruited from the shores of the lake, and the Sermon of the Mount was given on the Mount of Beatitudes overlooking the lake. Many of the miracles mentioned in the New Testament, including Jesus’ walk on water and the feeding of the multitude, took place here as well.
