Korazim is an archaeological site mentioned in the New Testament as a city condemned by Jesus (together with Bethsaida and Capernaum) for rejecting him.

 

Korazim was a Jewish town renowned for its good wheat in Talmudic times. In the 16th century, Jewish fishermen used to reside here. The town's ruins are spread over an area of 25 acres, subdivided into five separate quarters, with a synagogue in the centre. The ruins at the site include a large, impressive synagogue which was built with black basalt stones and decorated with Jewish motifs. Close by is a ritual bath, surrounded by public and residential buildings.


 

From the Scriptures

Korazim Matthew Chapter 11
 20 Then he began to upbraid the cities where most of his mighty works had been done, because they did not repent. 21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! woe to you, Beth-saida! for if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I tell you, it shall be more tolerable on the Day of Judgment for Tyre and Sidon than for you. 23 And you, Caperna-um, will you be exalted to heaven? You shall be brought down to Hades. For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 But I tell you that it shall be more tolerable on the Day of Judgment for the land of Sodom than for you.”

The Revised Standard Version, (New York: Oxford University Press, Inc.) 1973, 1977.
