Summary: During the days of Yeshua, Lebanon (or Phoenicia) was a Roman province
of Syria, located north of the provinces of Samaria and Galilee (see MAP). During
Yeshua’s second year of ministry he traveled to Lebanon, teaching and healing in
the port cities of Tyre and Sidon. While in Tyre, Yeshua stayed at the house of Jakobis,
a wealthy dye merchant (Y:21:52-54). It was during his ministry in Tyre that Yeshua
conversed with the famous philosopher, Zostrianos (Y:22:1-65).
From Tyre, Yeshua traveled north to Sidon. On his way, he stopped in the town of
Sarepta where he healed the son of Callistus, and adopted the little slave boy, Thaddeus
Labbaeus, whom Yeshua named Jude (Y:22:75-85).
Yeshua’s ministry in Lebanon is recorded in the book of Yeshua, chapters 21:35—25:75.
