The Sea of Galilee (Hebrew: ים כינרת, Yām Kinnẹrōth; Greek: Θάλασσαν τῆς Γαλιλαίας, Thalassan tēs Galilaias; Arabic: بحيرة طبريا, Buhayrat Tabariyyah, also known as the Lake of Gennesaret, Lake Kinneret or the Sea of Tiberias, is the largest freshwater lake in Israel and is perhaps best known as the place where Jesus walked on water.
