Capernaum by the Sea 12-27-2017
Having been rejected and run out of town in Nazareth, Yeshua returned to the fishing village of Capernaum, or Kefer Nachum in Hebrew, following His time in Jerusalem. Capernaum would become a kind of base of operations for Yeshua’s ministry going forward. The prophet Isaiah spoke of Capernaum and this region of the Galilee as a place which will see a great light. Capernaum is nestled on the northern shore of the Galilee near the border between the ancestral tribal lands of Zebulun and Naphtali. Yeshua would perform many miracles and healings here and His reputation will grow immeasurably.
