Statue of Saint Peter at Capernaum

Upon entering the archaeology site, one is struck by a large statue of St. Peter. Peter (as well as Andrew, Philip, James & John) was from the town of Bethsaida. He evidently moved to Capernaum after being married, as the New Testament clearly states that he, along with Andrew (and possibly Jesus: See Matt 17:24-25), lives in his mother-in-laws house.
