Mark 6:45 (King James Version)
And straightway he constrained his disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.
- Matthew 14:22-33 ; John 6:15-17 John 6:18-21
- unto Bethsaida
- or, over against Bethsaida.
- Bethsaida, according to Josephus, was situated on the sea of Gennesaret, in the lower Gaulonitis, (consequently on the east of the lake, as Pliny states,) and at the beginning of the mountainous country; and it was raised from a village to the honour of a city by Philip, and called Julias in honour of the emperor's daughter. Some learned men, however, are of opinion that the Bethsaida mentioned in the gospels was a different place; and that it was situated on the western shore of the sea of Tiberias, in Galilee, near Chorazin and Capernaum, with which it is associated, ( Matthew 11:21 ,23. John 12:21 ;)and Bishop Pococke mentions the ruins of a town or large village in the plain of Huttin, about two miles west of the lake, still bearing the name of Baitsida, which he thinks occupies its site.
