Ongoing archaeological excavation and research continues to uncover history at the biblical city of Bethsaida. Experts in the field continue to research and investigate the site, and have retrieved a wealth of information on some of the most critical topics in research from 10th century BCE to 4th century CE. In this volume, thirteen articles shed light on the history of the city and region, and look at the remains dating from the time of David to the time of Jesus.

'This book examines recent archaeological work at Bethsaida, which has provided rich and important archaeological discoveries related to the Iron Age and the Second Temple period. The monumental fortification system, town plan, and cultic finds of this Iron Age city makes Bethsaida a unique source for studying the material culture of Geshur, one of Israel’s neighbors.' (Amihai Mazar)
