Capernaum in Israel

In Capernaum, Israel, Jesus taught about Himself being the bread of life, which was very hard for the disciples to understand.    John 6:47 … I say unto you, He that believeth hath eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life.     John 6:58 This is the bread which came down out of heaven: not as the fathers ate, and died; he that eateth this bread shall live for ever. 59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.  John 6:33 For the bread of God is he who comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world. 34 They said therefore to him, Lord, ever give to us this bread

These synagogue structures in the pictures were built in the 4th century over the synagogue Jesus taught from.

The synagogue was a place that both Jesus and Paul taught in.  Mark 1:21 And they go into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and taught. 22 And they were astonished at his teaching: For he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes. 23 And straightway there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,
