Many of the Galilean fishermen carried heavy strains of gentile blood as a result of the forcible conversion of the gentile population of Galilee one hundred years previously.  Herod Antipas, like his father, was a great builder. He rebuilt many of the cities of Galilee, including the important trade center of Sepphoris.  Jesus always wished to meet apostles in the scenes and nature of Galilee.  Jesus’ preaching tours of Galilee:
Lack of wealth of Galileans did not imply social inferiority.  Galilee was a more beautiful and prosperous district than Judea, and it cost only about one fourth as much to live there as in Jerusalem and Judea.
