The church of 5 loaves and 2 fishes said that Jesus went to the Babao Mountain in the Lake of Galilee to give lectures. He saw that the villagers were too hungry, so he used 5 loaves and 2 blessings and prayers, which became more and more and became 5000 +12 blue fish. People feasted.

The temperature of the hot springs is different from that of the lake, which promotes the growth of seaweeds, so the Galilee is very rich in fish.
