Bethsaida

Bethsaida (Aramaic: “Home of the Fishermen”), is known from the New Testament as the home of Philip, Andrew, and Peter (John 1:44).  Jesus visited the site at least once (Mark 8:22-26), but later he cursed it (Matthew 21:22). The curse was apperently so effective that even the location of the city is not certain today.

Bethsaida is in the “Jordan Park” near the Jordan River   and the Sea of Galilee ; “Et tell” is a 15 minutes drive away.

Contact me for a proposal of a full day tour to the Galilee, that will also include a visit to the sites related to ancient Bethsaida.
