Short Video: From Jericho to Masada at the Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is always an enjoyable place to visit. I make a point of going there during every trip to Israel. A warm float in the Dead Sea and the fresh, cool waterfalls of Ein Gedi wash away every trace of working at a dig.

Here is some new video of the area outside Jericho and in front of Masada.

  • See the relationship of Jericho to Jerusalem.
  • Gain an idea of the descent/ascent between the two cities.
  • Note how close the Dead Sea is to Jericho.
  • See the border region between Israel and Jordan. (Or is it ancient Judah and Moab?)
  • Enjoy a great view of Masada and its snake trail to the top.
  • Consider whether David may have spent time at Masada while fleeing from Saul.

Those who have not yet visited the Dead Sea region can gain a good idea of the relationships between the various dots on a Bible map. There is nothing like actually being there, but this video may tantalize you.

The whole video is just under six minutes in length.
