Capernaum - Israel Tours

Arguably one of the most thrilling destinations you can visit on Christian tours to Israel and known as Jesus’ “own town”.

Capernaum is arguably one of the most thrilling destinations you can visit on Christian tours to Israel. Known as Jesus’ “own town” (matt 9:1) visitors are literally able to walk where Jesus did. You can visit the foundation of the ancient synagogue where Jesus taught (Mark 1:21, John 6:59) and where he healed a man that was possessed (Mark 1:23-27). It is said that this synagogue was built by the centurion whose servant Jesus healed later on (Luke 7:3-5). Luke 8:49-53 talks about the time Jesus raised the daughter of a synagogue leader from the dead. Peter’s house can also be found in Capernaum and is the place where he healed Peter’s mother-in-law (Matt. 8:14-15, Mark 1:29-31). Though a simple dwelling, Peter’s house is visited by thousands of pilgrims every year and a large church has been built around it with Peter’s house in the center. Capernaum will forever be a special place in regards to the Christian faith and a unique stop on your Holy Land tour.

Mark Chapter 1:21-28

21 And they went into Caperna-um; and immediately on the Sabbath he entered the synagogue and taught. 22 And they were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes. 23 And immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; 24 and he cried out, “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God.” 25 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!” 26 And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him. 27 And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching! With authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.” 28 And at once his fame spread everywhere throughout all the surrounding region of Galilee.
