Jericho

Earlier this week I taught a lesson about Jericho, so thought I would share a few Jericho related pictures that I have taken.

Tell es-Sultan - Walls of Jericho - Joshua - Walls Come Tumbling Down - Rahab - HarlotI will start with a picture of the ruined walls of Jericho.

Oldest City in the World - Jericho - Tell es-SultanJericho is considered the oldest city in the world. There were springs around the site that would have led it to be a place of gathering.

2 Kings 2, Elisha, Jericho, Spring, Bitter, SaltThere is a spring just by Tel es-Sultan (the ruins of Jericho) that is believed to be the spring where Elisha healed the waters by dumping salt into it. The water is still fresh to this day.
