Today we will explore two cities from among historical Decapolis, mentioned in the Gospel on several occasions. The first stop will be in Um Qais, or Gadara, as it was known to the people two thousand years ago, the ancient city at the foothill of the Golan Heights with its sweeping views of the Lake of Galilee, Mt. Tabor, and the surrounding area. This large ancient city has not been excavated fully, as it is on the very border between Israel and Jordan. Still, the main streets with many shops, the theater, the agora and remains of a very interesting round-shaped basilica have been excavated and are very fascinating. The tiny museum on the site contains some of the finds from the excavations. After transfer and lunch we will visit the site that is nicknamed the Pompeii of the East, modern day Jerash or ancient Gerasa. This is one of the best-preserved Roman cities worldwide, with colonnaded streets, oval shaped city square, remains of the massive pagan temples, two theaters and multiple Christian basilicas. Since it never makes the news, few people aware of it, but the sheer magnitude of it is hard to comprehend.
