Jesus goes to Gennesaret (Mk 6:53-6:53)

“When they had crossed over,

They came to land

At Gennesaret.

They moored

The boat.”

Καὶ διαπεράσαντες ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἦλθον εἰς Γεννησαρὲτ καὶ προσωρμίσθησαν.

There is something very similar to this in Matthew, chapter 14:34.  Jesus and his disciples were on the Sea of Galilee.  Their boat crossed over (Καὶ διαπεράσαντες) and landed further south.  They came to the land of Gennesaret (ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἦλθον εἰς Γεννησαρέτ), the Greek word for Kinnereth or Chinnereth, on the central western shore of the Sea of Galilee, about 10 miles south of Capernaum.  There they anchored their boat or tied it up at the shore (καὶ προσωρμίσθησαν).
