The sites we select to report on are mostly from the Holy Bible, and are the focus of interest of Christians and Jews. Many of these sites are a few Kilometers from my home in Lower Galilee, which is located exactly on the ancient route of Via Maris ("the way of the sea" ) that once connected Greece, Syria, and Persia (in the North) to Egypt (in the South).
Near my back yard lies a Tell (mound), a round hill with many layers of history, which was two thousand years ago a trade post along this ancient road. I can visualize the great leaders passing thru this ancient road, like Abraham, the Pharaohs, Alexander the Great, Napoleon and others - and almost can hear the fading echoes of the caravans that once passed my home for thousands of years. Nowadays, it is modern traffic that passes exactly on the same north-south route. Thus, history mixes with the modern times. We are practically "living with the bible" and would like to share this with you folks.
In this web site we bring the views of the ancient world as it is today, and share my love of the land and its historical roots.
We are collecting information and photos from the Holy Land, in order to tell their stories, provide reviews and links, show views from these places. If you are interested in certain sites, please tell us about them.
To support this web site we feature sponsored links, and opened an on-line store option where we sell some useful artifacts and you can order related books and photos. Additionally, we welcome donations that will help to build and support this site.
Biblewalks already covers over 430 reviewed sites and over 13,000 original photos in dual resolutions. We are in the process of adding more material and photos. This is a long process that will take some time (there are so many exciting sites around here!).
We hope you enjoy our web site, and walk with us through the Holy Land.
God Bless you all!
