Capharnaum

Additional Links

(Hebrew: Kaphar Nahum, village of Nahum)

Town, Galilee, closely associated with Our Lord, and frequently mentioned in the Gospels. When repelled by the Nazarenes, Jesus went there to live, and it was called "His city" (Matthew 9). In Capharnaum He chose His first disciples (Matthew 4) and performed many miracles; He cured the paralytic (Matthew 9), the centurion's servant (Matthew 8); cast out the unclean spirit (Mark 1); and brought to life Jairus's daughter. He also delivered the discourse on the Eucharist (John 6). There is some doubt as to the site of Capharnaum, although it is identified with Tell-Hum on the north bank of the Lake of Tiberias.
