“It was here in this city by the sea that Jesus said things that no one had ever heard before as in, ‘Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.’ He also performed extraordinary miracles there.”
According to Professor Meyer, while in Capernaum, Jesus lived with his friend Peter’s in-laws.
Archaeologists famously claimed to have found this house in 1968 when Italian researchers stumbled upon a first century AD abode, similar to the one in Nazareth.
The house was found under the ruins of a Byzantine period (324 to 640 AD) church, which Professor Meyer claims was built to preserve the sanctity of the site.
The house was most likely a flimsy construction of drystone basalt walls and was part of a small complex of buildings around a shared courtyard.
