Transcript 3io PICTURESQUE PALESTINE. resistance, and cost the Romans a fierce and bloody struggle before they could be overcome That is a bloody sea-fight in which from four to five thousand are slaughtered on one sid alone, as was the case here, and not a " sharp skirmish," as one writer has termed this event As all who took part could hardly have been killed, the number of Jews that actually perished is a hint at least that the number of ships on the side of the Tarichaeans was very large, while the Romans who pursued them were likewise in ships. The difference between ships and the small boats which are attached to them seems to be clearly brought out in the Greek of John xxi. 3, 6, 8. Likewise the phrase in Josephus ("Wars," iii. 10, 5), "climbing up into their ships," is a significant hint as to the size of some of their vessels. From a passage in Josephus (" Wars," iii. 10, 6), we infer that ship-building was one of the important industries of Tarichaea. And, " when we add to the fishermen the crowd of ship-builders, the many boats of traffic, pleasure, and passage, wre see that the whole basin must have been a focus of life and energy, the surface of the lake constantly dotted with the white sails of vessels flying before the mountain-gusts, as the beach sparkled with the houses and palaces, the synagogues and the temples, of the Jewish or Roman inhabitants" (Stanley, " Sinai and Palestine," p. 367).
