Church of the Multiplication, Capernaum, Northern District, Israel

The Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes is a iconic church in Tabgha on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee.

The church is modern but stands on the site of 4th and 5th-century churches. It preserves a splendid early Christian mosaic as well as the traditional stone on which the miraculous meal was laid.

The miraculous feeding of five thousand people is described in Mark 6:30-44, just before Jesus walks on water. The Gospel account of the loaves and fishes does not specify where it took place; only that it was in a “remote place” (6:32,35) on the shores of Galilee.
