The Land and the Book

Air Time Saturday 1:00 PM-2:00 PM

January 27, 2024

Walking the Streets of Beit She'an

It’s an ancient town at the junction of the Jordan River Valley and the Jezreel Valley. Here, the bodies of King Saul and three of his sons were hung by the Philistines after losing the Battle of Gilboa. Why is this town so well preserved—even after an earthquake? What lessons can we learn? This week on The Land and the Book, we’ll walk the pavers of an ancient Roman town. It’s an unforgettable visit—on The Land and the Book.
