Recently rediscovered ancient synagogue, tied to the story of Jesus. A mile-a-minute Irish guide with great command of the history as applied then (2000 years ago) and now on the multifaith land that is Israel today. Modern pilgrimage facilities still in construction, but enough to welcome us and give us experience of the past, with hope for the future.

The greatest discovery for Christianity and Judaism so far. The church is amazing, the story is a sign of God. My faith was never stronger. Is a must visit in your trip to the holy land!

This is the site of a real first century synagogue on the Sea of Galilee , Jesus , the Bible tells us preached in such village synagogues . It's condition for an excavation is very clear and the volunteer guide ( Ms Celine Kelly for our trip ) really made it come alive . The modern church built behind the site is it's self well worth a visit , even for non christians .
Allocate 2 to 3 hours to capture the presence before you and reflect on just what is likely to have been going on at this site 2,000 years ago .
Magdala will become an absolute must for any Visitor to the Holy Land ,for Christians a place used at the time of Jesus ( not 350 years after his death cannot be bettered ), yes it really is that good .

Father Kelly was an excellent guide about the area and development of the area and the excavations which have found many new historic finds dating back to 1AD and the Roman occupation of Israel. I would encourage anyone seeking to increase their knowledge of the Jews, Jesus, and historical info to visit this new site of discovery.
