Capernaum

Industry in Capernaum producing basalt equipment such as grinders.

Notice the remains of equipment. Most cities would have one or two. Capernaum had an idustrial park of their remains.

Carvings from the buildings and synagogue. The white stone is clearly from the synagogue when compare to the local basalt stone.

Pilasters on the inside of the synagogue.

Notice the white stone of the wall that stands on the darker basalt stone of the foundation and floor.

The dark basalt stone is from the synagogue that Jesus preached in.

The white stone synogogue is from the 400's AD.

These are the remains of homes and buildings in Capernaum.

Peter's residence was here in Capernaum. Jesus visited Peter's house but Jesus also had his own place in Capernaum. This city became the headquarters for Jesus' ministry.

Toni sits in the church that covers Peter's house.

2,000 years of building churches on top of Peter's house makes it difficult to see, let alone visualize, the way it was in 30 AD.

Toni is understandably clearly not impressed.
