Jeff Futers

Jeff teaches about the significance of the Magdala stone found at the archaeological site of the home of Mary Magdalene and what is now the Magdala Tourist Center on the shores of Sea of Galilee near Migdal, Israel. Learn how the markings on the stone give us insight into one of the purposes of the first century synagogue as a place for worship and how they point to the temple in Jerusalem. In addition, we point out the likelihood of a 'Jesus' connection with Magdala and the synagogue there. Special thanks also to the Israel Antiquities Authority for permission to exhibit the replica of the Magdala Stone. You can also see a TV show that we did on location with Father Eamon Kelly explaining the stone as well.
