                        Saidon History


Saida/Sidon History - Christianity

Jesus in Saida

As mentioned in several occasions in the Bible:

  • And Jesus went to the neighborhood or Saida and Sour, ...

  • And Jesus came with them to a place with his followers, and a huge group of people from Jerusalem, Sour and Saida, to listen to him ...

Based on that, it is assumed that Jesus came to Saida, and specifically to Maghdoche, a hil close to Saida, to a cave called the "Saidit Al Mantara" meaning "The Waiting Lady" where it is bereaved that Jesus mother used to wait for him in that cave.

Peter in Saida

Peter, one of Jesus 12 followers, visited Saida in year 58, in his way to Rome. From Saida, he sent 90 preacher to the Lebanese mountains.
