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, ...
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.
