Galilee is located on the
northern side of the Holy Land. Jesus' childhood town (Nazareth)
is located in its center, and his adult home town (Capernaum) is
located on its east side. Most of the villages and sites Jesus
visited, preached and performed miracles where in the Galilee.
Jn 1:43-47: "The day following Jesus would
go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him,
Follow me. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and
Peter. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found
him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of
Nazareth, the son of Joseph. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there
any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and
see. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an
Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!"
