  Amazon.com: Galilee: Books: Clive Barker   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
When hot-house Rachel discovers Galilee washed ashore at Maui or wherever it's supposed to be, I threw the book in the trash and said "I can't take anymore of this!" I don't care if it's passed off as tongue-in-cheek or not.
Although the book starts off strong and great, it falls down to its knees a little before the middle; only near the end does it pick itself up (When Garrison begins to show his disturbed psyche) just to be completely murdered during the very end.
Galilee is not what we've come to expect from a Clive Barker novel, and yet it is. There is enough porn and barbarism throughout to make the casual necrophiliac stand up and applaud, but Clive is dealing in semi-retarded themes and daring us to read anything he writes.

 The Earliest Gospel
The book begins with a clear recognition of the difference between the resurrection narratives in Luke 24 and John 20 on the one hand and those in Matthew 28, John 21, and what must be presupposed as the tradition underlying Mark on the other hand.
Galilee had become a Jewish territory once more, by the lifetime of Jesus; and although it still had a large gentile population, the dominant element in the population was a type of Jews who in their origin and in their religious outlook had strong affiliations with Jerusalem.
Galilee is accordingly the "holy land" of the Gospel, the anticipated scene of the final eschatological fulfillment.

A good example of this is the famous "Galilee boat," an almost perfectly preserved two-thousand year old boat discovered approximately one mile north of Migdal, or Magdala, on the shore of the Sea of Galilee (Wachsmann).
Galilee, as part of the old northern kingdom of Israel, had been conquered by the Assyrians before Samaria, but the population of Galilee had been left in place (Horsley: 23).
Galilee then changed hands fairly frequently, always being administered separately from Judah, until it was conquered by the Hasmonaean Aristobulus I in 104 BCE (Horsley: 25).

 Galilee tour home page
Galilee is derived from the Hebrew galil, meaning "circle" of "circuit." Isaiah (9:1) called the region "Galilee ha-gohim" or "Galilee of the gentiles" (NIV) or "Galilee of the nations" (KJV), reflecting the fact that from the 8th century to the 2nd century BC, it was controlled successively by the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians and Seleucids.
Galilee is sharply divided into two sections, Upper and Lower Galilee, by a tremendous fault cutting across the country between the Mediterranean port city of Akko/Ptolomais to Capernaum on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee.
Upper Galilee is a high plateau divided by narrow gorges, with elevations ranging from 1,500 to 3,963 feet high, while Lower Galilee ranges from 500 feet above sea level to around 700 feet below sea level at the Sea of Galilee (except for the mountains in the southeast which do not exceed 2,000 feet).

 An error in the Book of Mormon
Nevertheless, the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun, and the land of Naphtali, and afterwards did more grievously afflict by the way of the Red Sea beyond Jordan in Galilee of the nations.
Nevertheless the dimness [shall] not [be] such as [was] in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict [her by] the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.
Since Galilee, and Capernaum in particular, were on this route, this interpretation seems plausible.

This book is not so much a theology or history text (Elizondo has written in these areas) but rather a spirituality book, drawing on his own experiences as well as those of his community and his scholarly background.
When the healing power and joy of Jesus of Galilee are so strongly transmitted to mestizo men and women, to the extent that they experience that he is the Christ of God, then light is also shed on who Jesus himself was and how God worked and continues to work in him for us.

 The Urantia Book — Paper 192 — Appearances in Galilee
Since Jesus appeared only to his family of kingdom believers, and since the apostles were in hiding and did no public preaching, the rulers of the Jews concluded that the gospel movement was, after all, effectually crushed.
The apostles paused several times on the way to Galilee to tell the story of their risen Master and therefore did not arrive at Bethsaida until very late on Wednesday night.
Word of the appearances of Jesus was spreading throughout Galilee, and every day increasing numbers of believers arrived at the Zebedee home to inquire about the Master's resurrection and to find out the truth about these reputed appearances.
