The Galilee

 

 


The Galilee, stilled,

cold and quiet mourns His death,

the slain Lamb of God

~~~

 who walked on water,

 fed the hungry, healed the sick,

helped the poor and weak,

~~~

taught us how to live,

and how to love our neighbor,

then humbled himself,

~~~

 and died on a cross

bearing the sins of the world;

God’s redemption plan.

The above photo of the Sea of Galilee was taken by my husband on our trip to Israel in May of 2001. References to the ‘stilled Galilee’ can be found in the New Testament in Matthew 8:23-26 (NIV). Other miracles of Jesus and his ministry is told and reported throughout the books of Matthew, Luke and the Gospels.
