When Israel is mentioned, most think of Jerusalem or Tel Aviv. Others think of the barren deserts of the Negev. Some may think of the Mediterranean coast. But, remember, over 80% of Jesus’ ministry happened in the Galilee area. The northern part of Israel is very diverse in climate and landscape, and very different even economically and socially from the well-known major cities in Israel.
The Jewish nation is roughly the size of New Jersey, yet that diversity in climate (5 different climate zones) and landscape (deserts, mountains, forests, plains) makes Israel very unique. Let’s take a short virtual tour of Israel’s north, then you tell me….did you ever think about these things?
