Elisha Spring – Lowest Point on Earth

You may cross off two items on your bucket list with a trip to Jericho, Palestine. First of all, Jericho is the world’s oldest city. Additionally, it is the lowest point on Earth. There are two reasons you have to go to Jericho. In the city of Jericho, there is a spring named Elisha.

According to legend, Joshua’s land-cursing spell was removed when God used the prophet Elisha to cross the Jordan River and prophesy at a spring. Since then, spring has been revered. According to a rumor, anyone who drinks the holy water from the spring would be cured of any disease or issue they may be experiencing. The fact that Jericho’s water supply comes from the holy spring is another intriguing detail.


Mount of Temptation and Cable Car

The Mount of Temptation and monastery, which are visible from every part of the city, are what make Jericho renowned. The 30-minute hike to the monastery on foot is challenging. Since we are in the twenty-first century, you may take the cable car for a quick and beautiful journey of five minutes.

The name Mount Quarantania, which translates to 40 days, the length of Christ’s fast, is another name for the Mount of Temptation. Throughout his fast on the Mount of Temptation, the devil offered Jesus three different temptations. You may see the cave where Jesus was tempted to change stone into bread halfway up the mountain.

Jericho Tell (Tell es-Sultan)

The UNESCO-designated Tell es Sultan archaeological site is more over 10,000 years old. If you believed your nation had history, Jericho Tell elevates the concept significantly. From 1952 to 1958, British archaeologist Kathleen Kenyon conducted surveys at the Tell es Sultan site.

She verified that the location dated to the Natufian hunter-gatherer era, which was more than 10,000 years ago. You may visit her excavation site while at Tell es Sultan.
The walls of Jericho, which are also located near Tell es Sultan and are well-known, are another attraction. The walls of Jericho were constructed in 8000 BC, making it the world’s oldest walled city and another item to check off your bucket list! This area also includes the Tower of Jericho.

Sycamore Tree

Zacchaeus was keeping an eye on Jesus as he entered Jericho. To view him, Zacchaeus climbed a sycamore tree. Today, this sycamore is still standing in the heart of Jericho. It’s thought that Jesus approached this particular tree, glanced up at Zacchaeus, and made plans to meet him there. Zacchaeus, who was he? In Jericho, he was a tax collector.

Qasr al Yahud, Jesus Christ Baptism Site

Jesus’ baptismal location is located at Qasr al Yahud, which is just outside of Jericho on the Jordan/Palestine border. It is not advised to swim across at Qasr al Yahud since there are Jordanian soldiers on one side and Palestinian forces on the other. You are free to choose to get baptized.
