Bethsaida, a city in Palestine, on the N.E. shore of the Sea of Galilee, near the point where the Jordan has its issue. Philip the Tetrarch called it Julias and beautified it. Though the home of Peter, Andrew, and Philip, and often visited by Jesus (John i. 44; Mark viii. 22), the city profited little by its advantages, and was specially denounced by Christ (Luke x. 13).
