    ships

    Seafaring was not a skill of the Israelites; it was the sailors of Hiram, king of Tyre, who transported the materials for Solomon's Temple (1 Kgs. 5: 9), and in the NT Paul's journeys across the Mediterranean were made in trading vessels from Egypt (Acts 28: 11), not without misadventures (2 Cor. 11: 25). Jesus' disciples had fishing vessels on the Sea of Galilee (Mark 1: 19–20). One such vessel of that time was discovered by archaeologists in 1986 and has been carefully preserved.
