Bethsaida, located on the Sea of Galilee, is mentioned more frequently than any other town in the New Testament except for Jerusalem and Capernaum. It was the home of Jesus’ closest friends, possibly nine of the apostles and his aunt Salome. The name means “house of fishermen”, and it was renowned as a place of healing. Many of the “mighty works” of Jesus were performed here (one text mentions fifty three). It was to Galilee that the apostles returned after his execution and here Christianity was spawned. Galilee was destroyed by an earthquake in the early second century, which had a major impact on the topography of the area. Bethsaida, originally located on the shore, was now a mile and a half from the Sea of Galilee. This made fishing impractical and the town was not rebuilt, unlike other towns associated with Jesus. It was a pile of rubble for nearly 2000 years. There are twenty-nine extant journals of pilgrims who attempted unsuccessfully to find it. In 1987, a probe by Dr Rami Arav verified that this site did go back to Roman times and beyond. It is the only archaeological site that goes directly back to the time of Jesus. Here, his words and actions come alive, and, as such, the town has to be taken into account in the search for the historical Jesus.
