SciFriday: Og’s Giant Bed

AT THE SOUTHERN END of the Jordan River, Sodom and Jericho were destroyed, Moses was buried, and Elijah was carried up to heaven in a whirlwind. But there’s also a link to the other end of the Jordan, which in ancient times belonged to Og, king of Bashan.

Our video tour of Israel continues east of the Jordan as we show you what Moses saw, explain why God called Mount Nebo “this mountain of the Travelers,” and take you out into the desert of ancient Edom. It’s easy to see why the Israelites complained, looking at mostly sand and scrub for forty years!
