(Mark 6:14-29; Luke 9:7-9 CJB)
14:1 At that time Herodes the tetrarch heard of the fame of Yeshua (ישוע),
14:2And said to his avadim, This is Yochanan the Immerser; he is techiyah (risen from, resurrected) from HaMesim (the Dead); and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
14:3 For Herodes had laid hold on Yochanan, and bound him, and put [him] in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.
14:4 For Yochanan said to him, "It is not permissible for you to have her."
14:5 And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a Navi.
14:6 But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herodes.
14:7 Therefore he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask.
14:8 And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here Yochanan Immerser's head in a charger.
14:9 And the king was sorry; nevertheless, because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he commanded it to be given to her.
14:10 And he sent, and beheaded Yochanan in the prison.
14:11 And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought [it] to her mother.
14:12 And His Talmidim came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Yeshua (ישוע).
(Mark 6:30-44; Luke 9:10-17; Yochanan 6:1-14 CJB)
14:13 When Yeshua (ישוע) heard [of it], he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard [thereof], they followed him on foot out of the cities.
14:14 And Yeshua (ישוע) went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
14:15 And when it was evening, His Talmidim came to him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.
14:16 But Yeshua (ישוע) said to them, They need not depart; give you them to eat.
14:17 And they say to him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.
14:18 He said, Bring them hither to me.
14:19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to shamayim, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to [his] Talmidim, and the Talmidim to the multitude.
14:20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
14:21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.
Yehoshua (יהושע) walk on the water
(Mark 6:45-52; John 6:15-21 CJB)
14:22 And straightway Yeshua (ישוע) constrained His Talmidim to get into a ship, and to go before him to the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.
14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
14:24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
14:25 And in the fourth watch of the night Yeshua (ישוע) went to them, walking on the sea.
14:26 And when the Talmidim saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
14:27 But straightway Yeshua (ישוע) spoke to them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
14:28 And Kefa answered him and said, Adonay, if it be you, bid me come to you on the water.
14:29 And he said, Come. And when Kefa was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Yeshua (ישוע).
14:30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Adonay, save me.
14:31 And immediately Yeshua (ישוע) stretched forth [his] hand, and caught him, and said to him, O you of little faith, wherefore didst you doubt?
14:32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
14:33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth you are Ben Elohim (אלהים).
Yehoshua (יהושע) heals the sick at Gennesaret
(Mark 6:53-56 CJB)
14:34 And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret.
14:35 And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought to him all that were diseased;
14:36 And begged Him that they might only touch Mashiach's Tzitzit (fringe) of His garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly refuah (healed).

Gennesaret ("a garden of riches") was a town alloted to the tribe of Naphtali, called "Kinnereth" (Yehoshua 19:35), sometimes in the plural form "Kinneroth" (Yehoshua 11:2). In later times the name was gradually changed to Genezareth, Genezar and Gennesaret (Luke 5:1). No trace of the Gennesaret city remains. Flavius Josephus refers to the area as having very rich soil.
