Open Access Presidential Scholars Thesis

Abstract

About one mile north of the Sea of Galilee, in the Jordan River delta, stands a twenty-acre archeological mound known as et-tell. This ancient site has been under excavation since 1987, under the direction of Israeli archaeologist Dr. Rami Arav. In 1989 the Israeli government officially recognized et-tell as the site of Bethsaida, the third most frequently-mentioned city in the New Testament behind Jerusalem and Capemaum (" Bethsaida" 1). The rich history of Bethsaida began long before the New Testament was written, and archeological discoveries provide scholars with a first-hand look at what life was like over two thousand years ago.
