Ancient Capernaum

QUESTION: Ancient Capernaum

ANSWER:

Ancient Capernaum was a fishing village and trading post on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee during the first century AD. In the Bible, Capernaum was described as the village along the border of Zebulon and Naphtali where Jesus made his home after leaving Nazareth and starting his ministry (Matthew 4:13). It’s at Ancient Capernaum where we have early accounts of Jesus teaching both Jews in the synagogue and Romans in the homes. Jesus called four fishermen (Peter, Andrew, James and John) and a tax collector (Matthew) as disciples at Capernaum.

Evidence For Jesus - Go!


What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

Yes, I want to follow Jesus

I am a follower of Jesus

I still have questions
