And Jesus said -"you are Peter , and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 16:13-20)

Historic Site of the Banias
For many centuries Banias was sacred ground where the ancient god Ba’al was worshipped. During the Hellenistic era a cave was dedicated to the Greek god Pan. The word “Banias” is a corruption of the Greek word “Panias” from Pan. Around the 3rd century BC Banias was the site of the Paneas cult and sacrifices were made as offerings on the altar at Banias. At the Banias ancient ruins you can see niches in the rock and the Cave of Pan. When Herod the Great annexed the territory in 20BC he had a white marble temple constructed here. Remains of his temple have also survived.
A few years later in 3BC Herod’s son Philip built a city here called Caesaria Paneas. This city is referred to in the Gospels of Mark and Matthew as Caesaria Philippi. It is also referred to in the Jewish Talmud and Mishnah. Many years later in the 12th century Crusaders erected a fortress called Qa’l’at al-Subayba on the site and they battled to retain possession of the city at Banias. The city was relinquished to the Muslims became a small village.
