STRONGS NT 5085: Τιβεριάς

Τιβεριάς, Τιβεριάδος, (from Τιβέριος), a city of Galilee, near the Lake of Gennesaret, which Herod Antipas, tetrarch of Galilee, greatly enlarged (but see BB. DD., under the word and especially Schürer, Neutest. Zeitgesch., p. 234 note) and beautified, and named Tiberias in honor of Tiberius Caesar (Josephus, Antiquities 18, 2, 3). It is now called Tubariyeh, a poor and wretched town of about 3,000 inhabitants, swarming with fleas for which the place is notorious throughout Syria: John 6:1, 23; John 21:1. Cf. Robinson 2:380-394; Winers RWB, under the word; Rüetschi in Herzog edition 1 16:101; Weizsäcker in Sehenkel v., 526f; (Mühlau in Riehm, p. 1661f); Bädeker, pp. 367-369.
