This is the place where Moses finished his journey of life. The life of Moses ends in this mount. Bible says, In Deuteronomy 34:5-7 , "So Moses, the Eternal’s servant, died there in the land of Moab, just as the Eternal had said. He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-peor, but to this day no one knows where his grave is. Moses was 120 years old when he died, but his eyesight hadn’t failed and his strength hadn’t diminished".
Moses climbed this Mount Nebo during his days. From this mount we can see a land where people quarreled against Mosses for water. God asked Moses to speak to the rock so that it would produce water for the people. However, because he was angry, Moses instead of speaking to it, hit the rock twice. For this reason, he was barred by God from entering in to the Promised Land. But still God did miracle to His people. He gave water to His people and even now enough water has been supplied from this well to the entire people around the city. In the same mountain we can find the cross made up of copper. Since Moses did not obey God’s word, he was not able to enter into the Land of Canaan. God showed Moses the promised land "a land flowing with milk and honey". He was only able to see it.

ST. PETER'S PRIMACY
St. Peter's Primacy is also located in Tabgha, Israel. This is place where Jesus asked Peter 'Do you love me?' three times" and told Peter to, "Feed my sheep." (John 21:15-19) In this same sea shore, Jesus appears to his disciples for the third time after His resurrection on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. The night before, Peter and several other disciples had sailed out on the lake to fish, but caught nothing. In the morning, a man appeared on the shore and called out to them to throw their net on the right side of the boat. Doing so, they caught so many fish that they couldn't drag the net back into the boat. At this point Peter recognizes Jesus, and promptly jumps out of the boat to wade to shore to meet him. The other disciples follow in the boat, dragging the net behind them. When they land, Jesus has prepared a charcoal fire for the fish and provided bread, and they had breakfast together, says the verse John 21:9.
SEA OF GALILEE
Bible says, In Sea of Galilee, when Jesus was traveling on the boat there was a huge wind, He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. This is the place where Jesus called Simon, Peter, Jacob and John to be his disciples. Bible also says , Jesus walked on water following the miracle of the feeding of the five thousand, and also tells how Jesus sent the disciples by ship back to the "other side" of the Sea of Galilee (the eastern side) while he remained behind, alone, to pray. Night fell and the sea arose as the ship got caught in a wind storm. After rowing against the wind for most of the night, the disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea. They were frightened, thinking they were seeing a spirit, but when Jesus told them not to be afraid, they were reassured. After Jesus entered the ship, the wind ceased, and they arrived at the land.
