JERUSALEM, Israel – A study from the Geological Survey of Israel suggests that excessive water extraction from wells near the Sea of Galilee could have triggered recent earthquakes, leading some Christians to believe that these Holy Land quakes signal the fulfillment of New Testament prophecy about the return of Jesus.
One night in September 2013, homes in northern Israel shook as a small earthquake rumbled beneath the Sea of Galilee, where the New Testament says Jesus walked on water. Four more tremors rattled the area over the next four days. Nearly six years later, in July 2018, a dozen more small earthquakes shook the same spot under the lake.
