Summary: Caesarea Philippi was a city located in the northern part of the territory
governed by Herod Philip II. According to scripture, after the transfiguration event
on Mount Tabor (Y:19), Yeshua and certain of his disciples journeyed to Caesarea
Philippi (Y:19:61-69). Shortly after his arrival, Yeshua encountered a troubled youth
“distressed in the mind”, whom he proceeded to heal (Y:20:2-14). Yeshua traveled
to the gentile house of Porcius and Salome, where he dwelt many days teaching and
healing the community (Y:20:15, 37).
One day while resting under a fig tree in the market place, Yeshua was approached
by the Tetrarch, Herod Philip, who was deeply troubled by the prospect of his looming
death (Y:20:40-71). Yeshua gave counsel and wisdom to the troubled king, comforting
and blessing him before parting ways.
Now the Lord Yeshua came into Caesarea Philippi, both he and his disciples. And it
was noised about the whole city concerning him; how that he which was spoken of by
John was even now come up from Galilee.
Now Herod Philip was a good man which desired to rule wisely over the people, and
all those which were of Caesarea Philippi had regard for him; for between the Jews
and the Gentiles had he established the rule of peace.
Now in Caesarea Philippi did Yeshua sit daily in the market place, teaching always
the coming forth of the kingdom of Heaven.
And many believed on him, and when he was completed, he took journey unto the city
