Caesarea a city on the shore of the Mediterranean, on the great road from Tyre to Egypt, about 70 miles northwest of Jerusalem, at the northern extremity of the plain of Sharon. It was 
built by Herod the Great in B.C.E. 10, who named it after Caesar Augustus, hence called Caesarea Sebaste (Greek is Augustus for Sebastos), on the site of an old town called "Strato's 
Tower". It was the capital of the Roman province of Judaea.(map), the seat of the governors or procurators and the headquarters of the Roman troops. It was the great Gentile city of Palestine, with a spacious artificial harbor. It was adorned with many buildings of great splendor, after the manner of the Roman cities of the West. Here Cornelius the centurion was 
converted through the instrumentality of Peter:.Acts 10:1-4. Thus for the first time the door of faith was opened to the Gentiles. Philip the evangelist resided here with his four 
daughters:.Acts 21:8,9. From this place Saul sailed for his native Tarsus when forced to flee from Jerusalem:.Acts 9:30. And here he landed when returning from his second missionary journey:.Acts 18:22. He remained as a prisoner here for two years before his voyage to Rome:.Acts 24:27; 25:1-16). Here on a set day when games were celebrated in the theatre in honor of 
the emperor Claudius, Herod Agrippa I. appeared among the people in great pomp and in the midst of the idolatrous.homage paid to him was suddenly smitten by an angel and carried out a 
dying man. He was eaten of worms.(Acts 12:21-23), thus perishing by the same loathsome disease as his grandfather, Herod the Great. It still retains its ancient name Kaiseriyeh, but is 
now desolate. The present inhabitants of the ruins are snakes, scorpions, lizards, wild boars and jackals. It is described as the most desolate city of all Palestine.

Caesarea Philippi.was an ancient city of the Golan Heights section of Syria (now occupied by Israel), southwest of Damascus. The city was originally called Paneas because it was a center for the worship of the Greek god Pan. In B.C.E. 1st century before A.D., Emperor Augustus of Rome gave the region to Herod the Great, king of Judea. The city was subsequently enlarged by Herod's son, Herod Philip the Tetrarch, who named it Caesarea in honor of the emperor Caesar, adding Philippi, Latin 'of Philip', to distinguish the town from Caesarea Palestinae, a seaport to the south. The site is now occupied by the village of Baniyas.....Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
