Magdala

Magdala (Mag´duh-luh)

A thriving rural community (modern Tarichaeae) on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee between Capernaum to the north and Tiberias to the south. It appears to have been more romanized than Capernaum and to have contained a small synagogue. Mary “from Magdala” figures among Jesus’s women disciples (Luke 8:2) and was among the first witnesses to his resurrection (John 19:25; John 20:1; John 20:18; Matt 27:56; Matt 27:61; Matt 28:1; Mark 15:40; Mark 15:47; Mark 16:1; Luke 24:10).
