    The Cedars of God is a small forest of about 400 Lebanon Cedar trees in the mountains of northern Lebanon. They are among the last survivors of the extensive forests of the Cedars of Lebanon that thrived in this region in ancient times. The Cedars of Lebanon are mentioned in the Bible over 70 times. The ancient Egyptians used its resin in mummification and King Solomon used the famous trees in the construction of the First Temple in Jerusalem.

    In the Biblical passage found in 1 Kings 9:15 it notes that King Solomon constructed the city wall for the town of Gezer. Archaeologists working at the site have now identified Solomon's wall, and the photo displayed here shows the remains of the gated portion.

    Located in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem, the Pool of Bethesda is where Jesus healed a paralyzed man according to the Gospel of John. The name Bethesda means either House of Mercy or House of Grace. The pool was a gathering place for the blind, sick and crippled during biblical times. It was understood at the time that when an angel stirred the waters, the first person into the water would be healed.

    7. Until recently, many Bible scholars doubted the accuracy of the Bible's account of the nation of Edom battling with Israel in the time of king David. Edom, they argued, was a simple pastoral society at the time and did not become sufficiently organized or have the power to threaten Israel until much later. However, recent excavations indicate that "Edom was a complex society centuries earlier, (than previously thought) as reflected in the Bible," states Biblical Archaeology Review.

    The Negev Desert, possibly more than any other part of Israel, is the land of the Old Testament. Beginning with Abraham in the Book of Genesis, many biblical tales featuring Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, and Jacob took place in and around the desert and its main city – Beer Sheba. The Caananites, Edomites, Nabateans, Philistines and other tribes mentioned in the Bible also resided in the Negev Desert. For this reason, important trade routes like Via Maris and the Spice Road ventured through the land.
