Visiting the Roman Ruins in Israel

Eyal Feldman in IsraelToday was an adventure as my parents and I, who are in Israel together, went on a day trip through the Bible. We visited one of the most complete ancient Roman cities in the world, Beth Shean, which is 7000 years old.

Located 17 miles (27 km) south of the Sea of Galilee, Beth Shean is situated at the strategic junction of the Harod and Jordan Valleys. The fertility of the land and the abundance of water led the Jewish sages to say, “If the Garden of Eden is in the land of Israel, then its gate is Beth Shean.”

It is no surprise then that the site has been almost continuously settled from the Copper Age (5000 BCE) to the present.
