Byzantine Church ruins
The large Byzantine Church was erected here in the 4th C, and was destroyed in the 9th C following the Arab conquest. This Basilica-shaped Church was the Cathedral of the Byzantine city of Paneas.
The church was dedicated to the miracle of the healing of the bleeding woman by Jesus. According to Mark 5 25-34 and Luke 8 43-50, this is a description of her healing: "And a woman having an issue of blood... Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched".
