Tiberias (tî-bç'ri-as). A town in Galilee, on the western shore of the sea of Tiberias. John 6:1; John 6:23. Our Lord never visited it. He was often in the immediate neighborhood; but we never read of his entering Tiberias. It was the seat for centuries of a famous academy, and to the present day it is one of the four holy cities. Near to Tiberias are the celebrated hot baths of Hammam. The present city contains about 2000 inhabitants.
