The Church of Multiplication, Tabgha

An Oil Press

The mosaic depicts loaves and fishes.

The stone is the original church, the concrete block is the new.

The mosaic floors date from the 5th century.

These mosaics show things not native to the area including Roman and Byzantium birds and plants.

Alabaster Panels

This church is located near the site where Jesus multiplied the fish and bread to feed the 5,000.
