Jerash and the Jabbok River

Today we visited the massive excavation of the Graeco-Roman city of Jerash, one of the ten towns of the Decapolis where Legion took the good news of Jesus to after he was healed of many demons, according to Mark 5.20.

On a blistering hot day we paused to praise and reflect in the (rather welcome) shade of the great temple of Artemis, now a ruin.
