Day 17: Setting the scene

I find it can be easy to forget that the stories we read in the Bible are based on events that took place in real places which we can visit today. Since most of us have not been fortunate enough to go to the Holy Land to experience it for ourselves, we’re going to watch a video to gain a small insight into one of the areas where some of the Gospel scenes occurred. I find it helpful to create a visual image in my mind when reading the Gospel passages, and being influenced by images of where Jesus is thought to have carried out his ministry strengthens these images for me.

This video is about the Sea of Galilee and has been produced as part of the ‘Bibledex‘ project from the University of Nottingham’s Department of Theology and Religious Studies.

If you enjoyed that, there are other videos in the series.

I would one day like to visit these places myself, perhaps you would too?
