In passing we observe several interesting points in the story as told by Epiphanius. In the first place the feeling was very bitter between Jews and Christians, but it was almost as strong between Jews and pagans or Samaritans. The Jews would not permit any Greek (i.e., pagan), or Samaritan, or Christian to live in the district of Galilee where they were strongest; it had been impossible to build a church in any of the towns or villages there, and especially in Tiberias, Sepphoris, Nazareth, and Capernaum. Such a fact is not favourable to the existence of an unbroken Christian tradition in those towns.
