Metaphysical meaning of Gennesaret (mbd)
Gennesaret, gen-nes'-a-ret (Gk. fr. Heb.)--garden of the prince; prince's garden; valley of riches.

A lake in Palestine (Luke 5:1). The Sea of Galilee and Sea of Tiberias are other names for this lake; in the Old Testament it is called Chinnereth and Chinneroth.

Meta. Sea of divine life. We are related, both within the consciousness and without, to all creation through the universal life principle. When we recognize our unity with the one life, and with all life, we are on the way to true exaltation and rulership and abundant substance (prince's garden, garden of riches). (See GALILEE and CHINNERETH.)
