Gennesaret
“Garden of Riches”
(1.) A town of Naphtali, called Chinnereth (Jos 19:35), sometimes in
the plural form Chinneroth (Jos 11:2). In later times the name was
gradually changed to Genezar and Gennesaret (Luke 5:1). This city
stood on the western shore of the lake to which it gave its name. No
trace of it remains. The plain of Gennesaret has been called, from
its fertility and beauty, "the Paradise of Galilee.“
(2.) The Lake of Gennesaret, the Grecian form of Chinnereth.
