The Holy Land

“THE HOLY LAND

 

 

The Holy Land is so small

 

that a soring eagle

 

can see almost all of it at once on a clear day.

 

From Dan to Beersheba

 

is little more than 240 kilometers,

 

roughly the same distance

 

as from New York City to Albany.

 

From east to west,

 

the Holy Land is even narrower.

 

At its widest point,

 

a hundred and sixty kilometers

 

lie between the Mediterranean coast

 

and the Arabian Desert on the east.

 

The land in which such great events took place

 

is no bigger than

 

the State of New Jersey

 

and smaller than Belgium.
