St. George Monastery Israel

Just a few minutes from the Jerusalem-Dead Sea highway, St. George's Monastery awaits amid a spectacular biblical desert where Christian monks maintain their ancient way of life. St. George's Monastery began in the fourth century with a few monks who sought the desert experiences of the prophets, John the Baptist and Jesus and settled around a cave where they believed Elijah was fed by ravens (1 Kings 17:5-6).The sixth-century cliff-hanging complex, with its ancient chapel and gardens, is still inhabited by a few Greek Orthodox monks. It is reached by a pedestrian bridge across the Kelt River canyon, which many imagine to be Psalm 23's Valley of the Shadow and where shepherds still watch over their flocks, just as Ezekiel 34 and John 10:1-16 describe. The valley parallels the old Roman road to Jericho, the backdrop for the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:29-37).
