Two and a half miles north of Capernaum sits the small town of Chorazin. It is an important Jewish town from the time of the Second Temple. Jesus rebuked Chorazin for its lack of faith in Matthew chapter 11.

 

“Then He began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles were done, because they did not repent. Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had occurred in Tyre and Sidon which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.” Matthew 11:20-21

 

Today Chorazin is home to of one of Galilee’s most intact ancient synagogues. The remains of the synagogue are astonishing. Rebuilt in the 3rd or 4th centuries the synagogue includes a ritual bath which is an underground Mikveh, a broad staircase, the Seat of Moses carved out of a single basalt block, from which the Torah would have been read, a large hall with stone benches to sit during services and many stones with incredible carvings.
