He said these things while he was teaching in the synagogue at Capernaum.
As it happens, I was just there at Capernaum a couple weeks ago. We brothers, you may know, serve as chaplains for courses at St. George’s College in Jerusalem. Our band of pilgrims visited the site of ancient Capernaum on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee as part of the College’s “Palestine of Jesus” course. There are ruins of the first century village as well as a later synagogue and a Byzantine period church built over the house said to have been Peter’s.
