One of the many exciting advantages of living in Israel is access to biblical sites. Nothing beats reading a biblical story at the place where it happened. A few months ago, I took a group of tourists to the Galilee. In this photo (courtesy of Horst Krueger) I stand, Bible in hand, on Tel Jezreel, site of the winter palace (near Naboth’s vineyard) of Jehoram, the son of Ahab. I am reading to the tour group the story of General Jehu’s furious chariot drive from Ramoth Gilead to Jezreel, and his execution of Jehoram, king of Israel; Ahaziah, king of Judah; and Jehoram’s mother, the wicked Queen Jezebel (2 Kings 9).
