Abraham's Well, Beer-Sheba
Image TitleAbraham's Well, Beer-Sheba
Time Period1910-1919
Description/NotesImage Description from historic lecture booklet: "Beer-Sheba (the wall of seven) is the name of one of the oldest towns in Palestine. It is the most southern city of Palestine. Here are found seven wells, two large ones and five smaller ones called Abraham's wells. Perhaps no other name is better known in Palestine than is Beer-Sheba. It was first assigned to Judah and after-wards to Simeon (Josh. 15:28, 19;2) On the return from Exile, Beer-Sheba was again peopled by Jews. In Roman times Beer-Sheba was a very large village with a garrison. It was the seat of a bishopric in the early Christian times before the country was conquered by the Muslims."
