Town named in Bible may have been found
September 19 , 2013
Archaeologists have found a new town along the Sea of Galilee in Israel. According to them, the city is Dalmanutha, the same place that Jesus briefly sailed after the miracle of feeding many people with just a few fish and bread.
The evidence found in the town suggests that the city was active at the start of the Common era.
Archaeologists discovered the site during a field trip and Ken Dark, the team lead further explained his reason behind believing that the site is indeed Dalmanutha- "It is hard to imagine that a Roman-period coastal community of this size is nowhere mentioned in textual sources, and the site might be identified with one of the unlocated toponyms known from the Bible, perhaps the Dalmanutha of Mark 8:10."
