TIBERIAS

The town of Tiberias was on the western shore of Lake Galilee (also called the Sea of Galilee and the Sea of Tiberias) (John 6:1,23). Whereas towns on the northern shore were largely Jewish and were the scene of much of Jesus’ ministry, Tiberias was almost entirely Gentile. The Bible does not record that Jesus ever visited the town. (For map and other details see PALESTINE.)
