and the borders of Canaan reached from Sidon toward Gerar as far as Gaza, and then toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha.My First Steps in Gomorrah
Where are these cities that are mentioned in the bible? see map where they can now be found. For many years it was believed that they were under the Dead Sea and would become visible when the sea evaporated. Others believe that nothing remains of Sodom and Gomorrah. In the 1980,s an American archaeologist called Ron Wyatt found these sites. I purchased several DVD’s and books on the subject and was amazed. Why should it not be just as the bible said?
When I mentioned it to friends they were disbelieving and Christian friends would go quiet when I brought up the subject. Perhaps some thought that it was a money making scheme, but no one I knew had heard of this discovery and I decided I just had to prove it to myself and others. I wasn’t mad!
On the 25th October 2004 I decided to fly to Israel. My wife would not accompany me because she disliked flying and the uncertain situation in Gaza. I am a man who believes in prayer and faith and so I left for Israel alone. I arrived feeling jet-lagged and not much of the day remained so I visited the garden tomb where Jesus was laid after the crucifixion. you can reed about this by clicking on the garden tomb.
The next day I hired a taxi to take me to Mount Masada. Approaching the tip of the Dead Sea I passed white shapes of walls and buildings to the left. We were only half way to Masada! The taxi driver knew his job however and 25 miles later we reached the mountain. It suddenly struck me that the ruins we had passed were Admah and Zeboim. I had not realised that they were so far apart. As I entered what looked like a ghost town, the further I walked, the bigger the buildings became.
The deathly silence was frightening, with no wind or singing birds. My excitement grew with every step until I found myself standing speechless in the city of Gomorrah. I could pick out double Canaanite walls, and many types of sphinx and ziggurats. The courses of old streams were also obviously apparent.
