APPENDIX

Armageddon

The Jezreel Valley

Also known as Campus Legionis, Esdraelon, Esdraelon Valley,
Great Plain, Great Plain of Esdraelon, Great Plain of Megiddo, Merj ibn-'Amir,

The Jezreel Valley From Mt. Carmel

The spacious Jezreel Valley spreads out to the north and east from Mount Carmel,
providing convenient passage for international travelers in ancient times.
The fertile alluvial soil makes this the country's breadbasket as well.
The Bible in Revelation 16:16 speaks of the gathering of armies in this valley at the place of Armageddon.
 
Jezreel Valley Toward Mount Tabor

From the Nazareth ridge, overlooking the Jezreel Valley, Mt. Tabor looms large to the east.
While some tradition ascribes the transfiguration of Jesus to this place,
it more likely occurred in the area around Caesarea Philippi.
Deborah and Barak camped on Mt. Tabor with the Israelite army
before attacking and defeating Sisera's Canaanite force.
 
Jezreel Valley Toward Mount Gilboa

Mount Gilboa is on the southeastern side of the Jezreel Valley.
King Saul felt forced to commit suicide on these slopes
when facing certain defeat by the Philistines.
In light of Saul and Jonathan's deaths, David cursed the mountain
 "O mountains of Gilboa, may you have neither dew nor rain,
nor fields that yield offerings" (2 Sam 1:21).
