The Zebidah Inscription at Capernaum

This inscription can be translated as follows: "Alpheus, the son of Zebidah, the son of John made this column. May it be a blessing for him." Some site the references Alpheus, Zebidah, and John as evidence for the Zebidee family that possibly continued to live in the area of Capernaum for centuries after the time of the disciples.
