Tiberias was one of the most important cities in Galilee during the Roman era; it boasted a large Roman theatre with a stunning view of the Sea of Galilee and the luxurious palace of Herod Antipas. Today, the site is largely neglected with the ruins covered in weeds, garbage, and subject to looting and vandalism. Recently, a group of volunteers led by the Kinneret Institute for Galilean Archaeology, started cleaning up the sites and is raising funds to continue preserving the ancient ruins. They are hopeful that a plan to see various levels of government and the Israel Antiquities Authority establish a new national park in Tiberias to restore and preserve the history of the site. Tiberias is a biblical site, and is mentioned in John 6:23, where people in boats from Tiberias come looking for Jesus after he fed 5000 people.
