The following is the third post in a series on the new Biola Learn course called The Geography of Israel. Join The Good Book Blog and Associate Professor and Chair of Old Testament Charlie Trimm over the coming weeks to catch a glimpse into Israel and biblical settings.
It is rare to be able to pinpoint precisely where a biblical story happened, but the account of Gideon reducing his troops to 300 men at the Harod Springs is one of them. At the feet of Mount Gilboa on the southern edge of the Jezreel Valley, a park sits today at the site of this fascinating biblical story. In the video lecture we view drone footage of the Harod Spring and go on-site—even wading into the water itself—to learn about the account.
