Kinneret Bot

https://si0.twimg.com/profile_images/283752039/kinneret_reasonably_small.jpgWhile doing some searching for information I came across an interesting account on Twitter. Kinneret Bot is a computer that tweets “the water level of Lake Kinneret/the Sea of Galilee, Israel.” You can get to KB here.

Thursday the water level was 211.67m below sea level. For most Americans that is 694.46 feet below sea level. We reported the level of the lake November, 2010, at 701.71 ft. below sea level. This shows considerable improvement, but it is nearly three months before much rain can be expected.

I enjoy visiting the pier at Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee. The gauge that measures the level of the Sea is a nice attraction. The view that we captured in this photos shows the southeastern shore of the Sea.

The Sea of Galilee is also called the Sea of Tiberias by the Gospel of John.

After these things Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias). (John 6:1 NAU)

After these things Jesus manifested Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and He manifested Himself in this way. (John 21:1 NAU)
