Church of the Primacy of St Peter near the Sea of Galilee

Church of the Primacy of St Peter near the Sea of Galilee. This modern structure was built in 1933 and incorporates parts of an earlier 4th C. church. According to tradition, the church is built on the location where Jesus is said to have prepared a breakfast of bread and fish for his disciples following his Resurrection. Here he instructed Peter to "feed my sheep."


According to story in John 21, this is the location of a great catch of fish.  Pictured are two of Jesus' disciples (many years later) celebrating the catch.  The nets, boats, and fish are not seen in the picture which leads me to question whether Paris and Becky were even fishing.
