Massada Under Siege

Roman Army Camp at Massada

Looking down from the top of Massada you can still see where the Roman Army camped for three years while trying to take the last hold out of the Jews. There were three of these camps and you can just imagine the thoughts in the defenders minds as they looked down at that scene.

On the other side consider the Romans baking in that Summer heat down on the floor of that camp. For three years they dealt with hot wilderness conditions trying to take a fortress that seemed impossible. But nothing was impossible for that army and take it they did.


  1. the story of Massada has always fascinated me...

  2. It is an awesome place to visit.
    And it is close to PETRA :-)
