A Massive Herodian City

Biblical Israel Ministries & Tours (BIMT) is all about teaching the Bible in the context of the land of Israel and other biblical countries (Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Greece, and Italy). There are over 100 biblical sites in Israel alone that have been excavated. Caesarea Maritima is one of them. It was an impressive city built by Herod the Great from 22-10 BC. It was one of many other building projects going on about the same time, give or take a few years (e.g. the Jerusalem Temple, Herodium, Machaerus, Masada, Samaria/Sebaste, etc…).

There are many biblical connections with Caesarea as well. Philip was here, apparently for about 20 years (Acts 8, 21), Peter befriended Cornelius here (Acts 10). Herod’s grandson Herod Agrippa (41-44 AD) died here (Acts 12). And of course Paul was here (Acts 9, 26). At the end of his third missionary journey, he was actually here for two years before sailing to Rome.

Below you will see one of our latest YouTube Bible teachings. I want to take you there to Caesarea and show you the site over the course of about 10 minutes.


Caesarea is a remarkable site. On many tours we lead, it is the vert first archaeological site we see. Herod the Great built this city from 22-10 BC. It was quite impressive.”
This video teaching (and the next few dozen or so) will take you to actual biblical sites. You will walk through these sites with me. I hope that this teaching will help you learn about the Bible in the context of the land of Israel. Go HERE to see all our YouTube teachings and videos.
