Hardly To Be Discerned

“Good and evil grow up together in the field of this world almost inseparably, and the knowledge of good is so involved and interwoven with the knowledge of evil, and in so many cunning resemblances hardly to be discerned, that those confused seeds which were imposed upon Psyche as an incessant labor to cull out and sort asunder were not more intermixed.” – John Milton, Areopagitica, 1644

While showing this website to a co-worker today, I thought I’d post it up here for anybody who doesn’t know about it — http://www.BiblePlaces.com  is the most amazing repository of photos and information about the land, locations, structures, and even animals mentioned in Scripture. Everything from Genesis to Revelation, the Negev to Patmos.

I’ll start you off with a link to the page about En Gedi! It’s the hidden oasis on the western shore of the Dead Sea, where David hid himself from the murderous King Saul. Scroll down to see beautiful waterfalls, pools, and caves . . . you can just picture the shepherd and future king resting from arduous desert journeys and close escapes!

And this is Mount Gilboa — on these slopes King Saul fell on his sword as he saw his army defeated. Read 1 Samuel 31 as you look at the picture . . .
