WITH DESCRIPTIONS OF SCENES AND SITES PERTINENT TO THE STUDY OF CHRISTIANITY

Tzelon - Ramot Area Photos

 

This area is the north-east corner of the "Sea of Galilee."  These hills might have been in the regional setting for the feeding of the 4000 or the feeding of the 5000 people who traveled to listen to Jesus' teachings.  Bethsaida was a first century Jewish town on the east side of the Jordan River near where it flowed into the lake.  The southern end of the row of hills shown in the photos below was a ravine leading up to the Jewish first century town of Gamala.  Further south was the region of the Decapolis, or ten Hellenistic towns extending all the way south into Jordan and Beth Shean, Israel.

Distance from Ramot to beach, about 1 km.

View of a ridge immediately north of Ramot.  Kinnar Beach resort is the group of white buildings to the right.  This ridge is about four miles from Capernaum and close to the water.  The area is on the southeastern edge of the Bethsaida Plain.  A road at the bottom of the edge of the ridge ascended a steep ravine towards Gamala.
