Why The Jesus Boat?
You might be wondering why we are called “JesusBoat.com” – it is a curious name. Our name comes from an important archaeological discovery that was made right here in the Galilee.
In 1986 Moshe and Yuval Lufan, brothers and fishermen from Kibbutz Ginosar, had always dreamed of making an archelogical discovery. They loved Israel and the deep, meaningful history of the land. One day walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee they saw a bit of old wood poking out of the water. Upon further investigation they realized that it was a vessel -- a really old vessel. The Lufan brothers notified the Israel Antiquities Authority and an exciting marathon archaeological excavation commenced. The fragile ancient boat was carefully extracted from the mud and brought to shore for conservation and study.
The discovery of the ancient boat rocked the archaeological and spiritual world. Never before was such an ancient vessel found so complete. Through scientific
dating, the ancient boat was positively dated to the First Century C.E. Once the boat was positively dated to the time of Jesus, pilgrims from around the world flocked to view the boat which could have been the very same vessel on which Jesus sailed the Sea of Galilee. Subsequently, the Ancient Galilee Boat has come to be known as the Jesus Boat.
While we are no longer directly associated with the Jesus Boat site, we have kept the name beacause of what this amazing discovery represents -- history, hope and perserverence. These attributes are the very essesnce of Israel.
