Gallery: Shepherd’s Field, West Bank
The Shepherd’s Field, just outside Bethlehem, is thought to be the site where Angles appeared to the Shepherds upon Jesus’ birth. Upon the site are a Greek Orthodox church and a Roman Catholic chapel, as well as numerous excavations dating from the 4th-6th centuries, which include the ruins of a monastery, cisterns, mosaics, and natural caves which were expanded and used as living quarters during the time of Christ.
Reading companion for this Site: A 1st Century Traveler’s Guide to Palestine, a very interesting $4 Kindle book that does a great job of putting the reader into the experience of exploring the holy land in the 1st century AD. I read this while in the Holy Land and it greatly enriched the experience.
The truly adventurous who like to do their own exploring can check out Walking Palestine: 25 Journeys into the West Bank.
