English Text:

"Corazin, a village in the Galilee, cursed by the Messiah, lies in ruins today."
[Eusebius, a 4th century church patriarch]

Jesus and his disciples preached and taught along the shores of Lake Kinneret, where many miracles were performed.
Chorazin rejected him and was cursed, together with Capernaum and Bethsaida.

"Its synagogue has more than once heard the word of God out of His mouth and witnessed the miracles He performed. This is why all Christians should cherish the ruins of this building. We know that in the time of Eusebius the town was deserted, the Messiah's curse had struck it, and as witness to their deliberate disregard of His loving grace, the synagogue lay, in ruins."
[Victor Guerin, explorer, 1875]

of which, according to tradition, a crown was prepared for Jesus.
