Summary: Located on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee, Hippos was one of the
ten cities included among the Decapolis. While teaching in Hippos, Yeshua was invited
to the house of a famous artisan named Demitrius, who later became one of Yeshua’s
most devoted disciples (Y:10:59-83).
Also from Hippos was the woman, Regilla. She is listed among women who had been healed
by Yeshua and were counted among the discipleship (Y:11:1-3).
And arriving safely to the other side, the Lord came unto Hippos and there taught
the coming of the kingdom of Heaven, and many believed.
And there came unto him great multitudes from all Decapolis to hear him, and to see
for themselves the Anointed One which had purged the temple of money changers and
who set at naught the teachings of scribes and Pharisees.
And Yeshua went throughout the cities of Decapolis teaching and showing forth the
coming of the kingdom, and when the feast of Passover drew nigh, he came again unto
Bethsaida, and there was with him many disciples, both of men and women.
And certain women which had been healed of afflictions and infirmities ministered
unto the Lord with all gentle affection.
And of them were Mary of Magdala, Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s chief steward,
Susanna of Jotapata, Mary the sister of Martha and Lazarus, Regilla of Hippos, and
many others also, and they gave unto the ministry of their substance.
