Capernaum is mentioned 16 times in the New Testament. It served as Jesus’ "headquarters" during his public ministry. Several disciples were from Capernaum and many miracles were performed here. It was a fishing village with a tollbooth and a synagogue. Indeed, it was large enough to be the residence of a public official and a Roman centurion.
We will be visiting Capernaum on our 14-day Bible Study Tour to Turkey AND our 33-day Bible Study Tour to Israel/Jordan, Turkey, and Greece — (April 22–May 6, 2022). Email Dr. Rasmussen for a descriptive brochure.
