The Wider Image: The Sea of Galilee: receding waters of biblical lake
About 1 million tourists from abroad visit the Sea of Galilee, also known as Lake Tiberias or Kinneret, each year, according to the Israeli Tourism Ministry. The gospels tell of Jesus walking on the lake to comfort and save disciples as their ship was foundering in a storm and miraculously producing huge catches for their nets. But the Sea of Galilee may need a few more miracles these days. A sharp drop in annual rainfall in the northern Galilee region over the past three years has caused the lake's waters to recede, according to Israel's Water Authority. It is now at its lowest in five years. This has created problems for the largest freshwater lake in Israel, which is a water resource for the country's north and neighbouring Jordan, a tourist hot-spot and a main fishing zone.
