Sepphorisas Viewed from Nazareth
  • Sepphoris
  • Located only 4 miles from Nazareth.
  • Sepphoris was rebuilt during Jesus’ childhood.
  • As carpenters, Joseph and/or Jesus could have worked on its rebuilding.
  • Jesus saw the luxury which wealthy rulers enjoyed at the expense of poor peasants.

Modern Nazareth is in the foreground. Ruins of Sepphoris are on green hill in background. Ancient Nazareth was a mere village.
