  • The Other Side

    “The Other Side” is a painting  of the landscape surrounding the sea of Galilee. At 209 metres below sea level, it is the lowest freshwater lake on earth and Israel's largest freshwater lake; about 53 km in circumference and at its deepest approximately 43 m. Around the sea, the hills of Galilee reach nearly 1,400 feet above sea level, and the mountains of the Golan Heights (called the Decapolis in Jesus' time) reach more than 2,500 feet. As such, its geography makes it susceptible to sudden and violent storms. Storms are common when an east wind blows cool air over the warm air that covers the sea.  Also known as Lake Tiberias or the Kinneret, it was here that Jesus walked on water, calmed the storm, and called his disciple Peter and Andrew. It's where Jesus fed the 5 thousand with 5 loaves and 2 fish and where the Sermon on the Mount was taught. Do you know why during Jesus’ times to go to the other side calls for both courage and sacrifices?

    “On that day, when evening came, He said to them,  “Let us go over to the other side.” Mark 4:35
