For ABC Wednesday, W is for wine and woe at Bethsaida.
The winegrower's house was given an appropriate passage from the Apocryphal book Sirach.
The famous verse Luke 10:13, "Woe to you, Chorazin, woe to you, Bethsaida . . ."
I took part in the early excavations of Bethsaida back in the early 1990s.
The site has come a long way since then and is open to pilgrims and tourists.
The dig is still underway, still directed by Dr. Rami Arav.
If you are ever near the Sea of Galilee, pay a visit.
But watch your step, the town may still be cursed. :/
