The ESSENE Sites


and on the

Shore of the Dead Sea

a tour by Robert Holt, MD


 The Dead Sea is only about 12 to 14 milessouth-west of Jerusalem across desert and wadis.


However, by modern car or bus it is a bit further. .....The Essenes took 2 days to walk this distance, staying over at Khirbet MIRD or Mar Saba [called NAZARA then].


This MAP shows the Dead Sea....
