   02/07/2021 — Jesus Heals   
Fun Fact
Jesus' disciples Peter and Andrew were careful about money. They uprooted their families and moved to a new city because it gave them a tax break. Their home was Bethsaida (John 1:44). Yet we find them living in Capernaum, where they shared a house (Mark 1:29). The distance between the two cities is only five miles, but they belonged to different jurisdictions: Bethsaida, on the east side of the Jordan River, was in the territory of Herod Philip, while Capernaum on the west side belonged to that of Herod Antipas.

Peter and Andrew needed their fish processed (air dried or salted) for sale outside the immediate area, and the principal (if not the only) fish factory on the Sea of Galilee was at Magdala, a town in the same territory as Capernaum. Fishermen from Bethsaida had to bring their catch across a border and pay a tax—hence the customs house at Capernaum (Mark 2:14). By becoming residents of Capernaum, Peter and Andrew avoided this tax.

Businesses and living locations are sometimes made with tax implications in mind even today.
