Caesaria Phillipi

Caecaesarea philippisaria Phillipi at the base of Mt. Hermon stands at the headwaters of one of the sources of the Jordan. Its present name is Banias, a distortion of the Greek word Paneas, for here stood a shrine to the god Pan. Here Herod the Great built a Shrine to Caesar. Phillipi his son embellished the town and named it Caesaria.

Caesaria Phillipi is to be distinguished from the Herodean port-city Caesaria Maritima. It was here that Simon acknowledged Yeshua as the Messiah, to which Yeshua replied: “You are Peter. And on this rock (Petra) I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it.”
