Bethsaida

Bethsaida (Beth-say´uh-duh; Heb., “house of the fisherman”)

A town at the northeast corner of the Sea of Galilee near where the Jordan River flows into it. The apostles Peter, Andrew, and Philip were born here (John 1:44; John 12:21). Jesus fed the five thousand in the area (Mark 6:45; Luke 9:10-17) and healed a blind man (Mark 8:22-26), but he cursed the town for not accepting him (Matt 11:21-22; Luke 10:13-14).
