Pronunciation:  tai-BIHR-ee-uhs

And having received their authority from the king, they left the city of Tiberius by way of the sea, and they traveled throughout the cities of Decapolis and crossing Jordan into Judea they made inquiry concerning John.

 

 

See:  Shemiah, Zorakis

 

Summary:  A city on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee. It was founded by Herod Antipas (c. 18 CE), the Tetrarch of Galilee, and named in honor of the Emperor Tiberius. Scripture tells how Herod sent men from Tiberius to observe John the Baptizer in Judea (Y:2:4-5).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

Thus did the rulers of the land take thought concerning that prophet who proclaimed in the wilderness the coming of the Lord; from Caesarea to Tiberius by the sea, even unto Jerusalem did many conspire against the man night and day, hoping that by some means they might be rid of him.

Yeshua 2:11

 

[...] “Shemiah lived quietly in the city of Tiberius where he found employment in the palace of Herod as a scribe. Herod soon learned that Shemiah was the runaway slave of Caiaphas. But so valuable were Shemiah’s skills as an interpreter that Herod protected Shemiah’s secret.”

Azrael’s Commentary - Shemiah; para. 2

 

“A wealthy vintner whose wines were in great demand by Romans and Greeks alike. He lived near the city of Tiberius. Zorakis had vast vineyards and his wines not only supplied the cities of Decapolis, but went to markets as far away as Damascus and Athens.”

Azrael’s Commentary - Zorakis; para. 1
