Galilee is a large region in northern Israel where Jesus grew up. Much of Jesus’ adult ministry occurred on the shores of Sea of Galilee (which is technically a lake). At least four of Jesus’ disciples (Peter, Andrew, James and John) fished on the Sea of Galilee. The Sea of Galilee is also where Jesus gave the Sermon on the Mount, walked on the water and calmed the storm.
