21 Mt 4:23 Lu 4:43,44
Galilee was a province of Palestine, being bounded, says
Josephus, on the west by Ptolemais and mount Carmel; on the
south by the country of Samaria and Scythopolis, on the river
Jordan; on the east by the cantons of Hyppos, Gadara, and
Gaulon; and on the north by the confines of the Tyrians. It
was divided into Lower and Upper Galilee;--Upper Galilee, so
called from its being mountainous, was termed Galilee of the
Gentiles (Mt 4:15,) because inhabited, says Strabo, by
Egyptians, Arabians, and Phoenicians, and comprehended the
tribes of Asher and Naphtali; the Lower Galilee contained the
tribes of Zebulun and Issachar, and was sometimes termed the
Great Field. It was, says Josephus, very populous and rich,
containing 204; cities and towns.
