The distance from Galilee to Judea?
Asked in New Testament
Was Galilee part of Judea?
No. Judea and Galilee were separate territories separated by Samaria. In the time of Jesus, Judea was under direct Roman rule, while Galilee was ruled by King Herod Antipas. However, they were both important for the Jews, with Judea having a majority Jewish population and Galilee also a significant Jewish population.
On the east what borders Samaria Judea and Galilee?
What is the distance from judea to samaria?
Judea is a province or region, as Samaria is a region. So it can't be from Jerusalem (city) to Samaria. The distance travelled by the Lord Jesus would be from the Jordan river in Judea to Samaria en route to Galilee. This would be considerably lesser than the distance between Jerusalem (a city which is on a height) and Samaria. He could have travelled for 5-6 hours if He had started His journey at 6 am.

Whose rejection of Jesus provoked his declaration 'A prophet is not without honor save in his own country'?
According to Matthew, he was without honor in Galilee; according to John, he went to Galilee because he was without honor in Judea. According to Matthew the Galileans rejected him; according to John "the Galileans received him." According to Matthew, Galilee was "his own country"; according to John, Judea was "his own country." Matthew: "And when he came into his own country [Galilee], he taught them in their synagogue,...and they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country" (13, 54-57). John: "He departed thence, the had come from Judea and Samaria] and went into Galilee. For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honor in his own country. Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galileans received him" (4, 43-45).
