Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people…..Large crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea and the region across the Jordan followed Him.”
— Matthew 4:23, 25

 

Jerash, formerly known as Gerasa, is one of the best-preserved Greco-Roman provincial cities. Within a large ecclesiastical complex inside the city there is a fountain where Byzantine citizens once annually celebrated Jesus’ miracle of turning water into wine. Today, the “Fountain Court” is a popular destination for pilgrims who want to re-enact the travels and teachings of Jesus in one of the splendid 1st Century cities of the Decapolis.
