On Tuesday, May 23, we visited the ancient ruins of Beit She’an and took a detour in Bedouin territory to view a hidden monastery. Beit She’an was a Roman pagan city that was destroyed by an earthquake. The devastating effects of the earthquake can still be seen, today, as pillars lay fallen on the ground. This particular site reveals a lot about Roman life, from the baths to the marketplace, including a large Roman road that is largely intact. Beit She’an is mentioned in 1 Samuel 31:10 as the place where the Philistines fastened the dead body of Saul to their wall.
