Modern-day Fishing

Today fishermen catch the same fish and use the same nets as the disciples did. The Sea of Galilee is near the hills of today’s Golan Heights and the Decapolis of Jesus’ day. The cool wind blowing off the hills sinks rapidly onto the sea, displacing the warmer air, and causing storms to strike.The size of this boat helps us understand the terror the disciples felt after being caught in the storm at sea.
