Walking and Listening III

The last couple of days I have been listening to I and II Kings while out walking. I have been to many of the places mentioned, so thought I would share a few pictures tonight.

Gibeon, Nabi Samwil, High Place of GibeonA couple nights ago I shared Solomon’s Prayer for Wisdom which took place at the Heights of Gibeon.

Worship Site at Tel Dan - Golden Calf - Jeroboam - AltarHere at Dan is where one of Jereboam’s golden calves would have been. See I Kings 12.

Mount Carmel, Elijah, SwordI Kings 18 recounts Elijah’s defeat of the prophets of Baal at Mt. Carmel.

Spring of JezreelJezreel and the Jezreel Valley are also mentioned frequently in the accounts. Could this have been the view that Naboth had from his vineyard at Jezreel?

2 Kings 2, Elisha, Jericho, Spring, Bitter, SaltOne little account in 2 Kings 2 is often overlooked. Elisha healed the spring at Jericho by throwing salt in it. The spring is still healed today.

However, most of us probably remember what happened right after that when the boys called him baldhead and the she-bears attacked them.

Jordan River, Baptism, Not really hereListening to the account of Naaman made me think of the baptismal site that is on the Jordan River near the Sea of Galilee. It is not said where Naaman dipped himself in the river, but I would assume it would have been somewhere north of Samaria as Naaman headed back toward Syria and then decided to follow through with the instructions.

I will soon be listening to many of the accounts again once I make it through the genealogies of the Chronicles.
