Easton's Bible Dictionary
Chorazin

Named along with Bethsaida and Capernaum as one of the cities in which our Lord's "mighty works" were done, and which was doomed to woe because of signal privileges neglected (Matthew 11:21; Luke 10:13). It has been identified by general consent with the modern Kerazeh, about 2 1/2 miles up the Wady Kerazeh from Capernaum; i.e., Tell Hum.

one of the cities in which our Lord's mighty works were done, but named only in his denunciation. 40011021; 42010013 St. Jerome describes it as on the shore of the lake, two miles from Capernaum, but its modern site is uncertain.
