The Gospel Trail

Tourists from Germany traveling along the Gospel Trail rest atop Tel Kinrot, a hilltop located above the fertile Gennesaret and Tabgha Valleys. Tel Kinrot was once a fortified city, mentioned in ancient Egyptian sources. Lower Galilee, Israel. 29th November 2011.

Ein-Nun, the Spring of "Nun" ("fish" in Aramaic) along the Gospel Trail is a stone-lined pool bordered by huge eucalyptus trees, one of many springs along the western side of the Sea of Galilee. Lower Galilee, Israel. 29th November 2011.

The 380-meter-high Mount Arbel cliffs on the Gospel Trail overlook the Sea of Galilee. In Jesus' time this was the main route from Nazareth to the northern shores of the Sea of Galilee. The Gospels indicate that Jesus passed this way several times. Lower Galilee, Israel. 29th November 2011.

The sun sets on the Sea of Galilee, near Capernaum, the destination of the Gospel Trail. The trail was officially inaugurated today for the benefit of pilgrims and tourists visiting the holy land. Lower Galilee, Israel. 29th November 2011.

Ministry of Tourism press release, 17th November 2011: The Gospel Trail offers pilgrims and tourists, individuals and groups, the opportunity to discover the cradle of Christianity by experiencing – both physically and spiritually – the same biblical landscapes and sites of the Galilee where Jesus and his disciples once walked. The Gospel Trail incorporates over 60 kilometers of specially-signposted footpaths and roads which can be traveled on foot, by bicycle, on horseback and/or car, culminating in the spiritual highlight of sailing on the Sea of Galilee.

The modular trail, which the Ministry of Tourism has developed and renovated together with KKL-JNF in a joint investment of NIS 3 million (NIS 2 million from the Ministry of Tourism’s budget), follows the paths that Jesus is believed to have taken when he left Nazareth, the home of his childhood, for Capernaum on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee, which became the center of his ministry. Luke 4: 29 -31: “And they led him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. Then passing through the midst of them, he went his way. Then he went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee…”
