Remarkable as being called the Lord's 'own city. Matthew 9:1 ; Mark 2:1 . It was one which He often visited, and in which many of His 'mighty works' were done. He speaks of it as 'exalted to heaven;' perhaps in the privilege of the presence and testimony of the Lord; but, because of refusing Him and His works, it should be 'brought down to hell' (Hades). Matthew 11:23 . It has been so destroyed that even its ruins cannot with certainty be discovered. It was in the district of Gennesaret (Matthew 14:34 ; John 6:17,24 ), therefore on the N.W. of the Sea of Galilee. Its identification varies between Khan Minia, 32 52' N, and Tell Hum, about 3 miles farther N.E. There are ruins or rather mounds in both places, and the relies of a synagogue at the latter, but a fountain of water, of which Josephus speaks, is only found at Khan Minia.
