G6 on the Map.
Sinn-en-Nabra. A city near the southwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is striking that this city, and most of the cities in Galilee south of Gennesaret, are not mentioned in the Bible. Neither Tiberias, or the baths, or Sennabris, or Scythopolis are mentioned in the Bible yet many times in the works of Josephus, Polybius, etc. Yet, on the other hand, Josephus mentions next to nothing about Nazareth.
Maps are essential for any serious Bible study, they help students of the Scriptures understand the geographical locations and historical backgrounds of the places mentioned in the Bible.
