Jesus was here (most likely)!
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. Magdala is one of them.
Below you will see one of our latest YouTube Bible teachings. I want to take you there to Magdala. Matthew 16 tells us that following the Feeding of the 4,000 (perhaps somewhere on the SE corner of the Sea of Galilee), Jesus and His disciples sailed into this port city. Magdala was one of at least 15 ancient harbors discovered so far along the shores of the lake.
The most impressive ruins to see here is that of the First Century synagogue. It is a modest structure that seated maybe 50-60 at most. Jesus most likely taught here, even though only general statements are recorded in the Gospels of Jesus “teaching in synagogues…” (e.g. Matthew 4 and 9).
