The archaeological site of Capernahum is all that is left of an ancient city once extremely
prosperous and important, especially in the period when Jesus was preaching.
Capernaum is mentioned many times in the Gospels. There are accounts of several miracles
performed by Jesus in that city, such as the resurrection of the daughter of the elderman of the synagogue,
the healing of the centurion's servant, and the chasing out of an unclean spirit from a man in the synagogue.
