No doubt what attracted the area's first settlers, whatever the date, is the
presence of two water sources which flow in or near the city. One is the perennial
river, the Abana (or Barada), upon whose banks the city was built. The other,
which is located about ten miles south of the city, is the Pharpar (Nahal el-A∞waj
). These are the rivers said to have been “better than all the waters of Israel,” by
Naaman, an Aramean who came to Elisha to be healed ofa skin disease (2 Kgs.
5: 12).

It is difficult today to ascertain precisely where their cities were located. But let us
leave aside cities of brick and stone; let us look at dwellings of flesh and blood
and bone ...That which took decades to build with care and constant anxiety
disintegrates into grave-dust in the twinkling of an eye ...But let us leave aside
cities of the body; let us look at the pleasure-cities that men have built generation
after generation. The materials from which these cities are built are feasting, ease

to the village or city. Smaller villages sought the protection of nearby cities. That
is the meaning of the expression, “and its surrounding settlements,” added to the
name ofa city (Num. 21:25; 32:42). In return for the protection offered against
nomadic attacks, the cities received payment in service and produce. Sometimes
a city was protected by a feudal lord around or near whose fortress the city was
built. Often it depended entirely on the strength of its walls and the bravery of its
men.

Chapter 4 THE CITY IN THE SCRIPTURES Any biblical theology of the city
ultimately is a theology about two cities: the city of man and the city of God. The
story of Scripture, therefore, is “a tale of two cities.” the civitas Dei and the civitas
mundi. Perhaps that is why we find that scripture opens with a city built by Cain
and closes with a city built by God. (Walter Kaiser) TOWARD AN URBAN
HERMENEUTIC Conventional wisdom seems to believe that spiritual retreat can

Ancient cities were usually built on high points of land near water supplies, and
when a city was destroyed a new city was built on the same site atop the packed
and settled debris from the former city. Thus, over time, cities came to be on top of
high mounds of compacted ruins. Ai was not rebuilt; therefore it remained a heap
of ruins. The Hebrew word (tel) for heap is found in only a few places in the Bible
(8:28; Deut. 13:16; 11:13; Jer. 30:18; 49:2), and in such place names in the Bible

The city is known today by its Arabic name, Aricha. The original city was built
directly over the largest spring in Palestine, which still waters the region. By
Jesus' time it was about a mile south of that spot. The road from Jerusalem to
Jericho passes through the Wadi Qelt, the beautiful canyon that opens onto fertile
plains 825 feet below sea level, on which the city is built. Jericho is particularly
famous for three major biblical references: Joshua's siege (Josh. 6), Jesus'
parable of the Good ...
