The ancient ruins of Beit She’an are sure to impress during your trip to the Holy Land. Located 17 miles south of the Sea of Galilee, the ancient city was situated in a strategically important junction of the Harod and Jordan Valleys. The fertile lands were made famous with the Jewish sages to say "If the Garden of Eden is in the land of Israel, then its gate is Beth She’an."

One of the important places in the scripture you will visit during your Christian tour of Israel is Bethlehem, where according to tradition Mary gave birth to Jesus in a cave, and where it’s currently marked by a star in the Byzantine church the Church of the Nativity that commemorates the birth of Jesus. Scriptures do not mention the existence of a cave, however it was during these times custom to build houses in front of caves, which provided additional shelter for animals and storage space.
