Sites of the history of Israel



Wadi Qelt Sites

(Photo above taken of the St. George Monastery in the Wadi Qelt, Summer 2013.) The Wadi Qelt is a deep valley that runs between Jerusalem and Jericho, naturally forcing most travel to be west and east, since it is hard to cross. People had to walk on a road along the dry wadi bed,“paved” by Rome in the base of the gorge, known as the ancient Jericho Road. It was the path that the king of Judah took when trying to escape the armies of the Babylonian invasion. It was also walked by Jesus and was the setting of His story about the Good Samaritan on the road to Jericho.
