The Bread of Life

Moments at Capernaum:

It was in the synagogue here that Jesus taught.  Some of the same stones of that building still remain and are part of the uncovered synagogue seen today. This was in so many ways the city of Jesus’ life.  Here he called Matthew who served as a tax collector, here he rested and visited in the home of Peter.

Mark the second chapter tells us of the people who hear him in this synagogue being amazed for He taught them as one who had authority. In this synagogue he healed a man filled with demons and the people rose up against him.  Yet in this same city so many people came to the house that the friends of a lame man had to let him down through the roof so that Jesus could heal him.

In the remains of this synagogue I sat in the Seat of Moses, the priest would use this as his seat, and tried to visualize what it would have been like to be in this place two thousand years ago and see Jesus talking to the people, touching the sick, healing the hurts and curing the curses of men. Here He told them that He was the Bread of Life. John 6:35 Why are we so spiritually hungry that we search in ‘magic’ ways, read the ‘signs’, seek help from those who have no help and overlook the Bread of Life, Jesus?
