Capernaum

Overview

Capernaum was an important town in the time of Christ due its location on the Sea of Galilee (with its bustling fishing industry) and because it straddled the International Coastal Highway, which stretched from Mesopotamia in the east to Egypt in the south. Thus, Capernaum controlled trade along this strategic highway. Its prominence is indicated by the presence of a Roman centurion and detachment of troops, a customs station, and a high officer of the king.
