Quick facts:

Jericho is a Palestinian city in the West Bank. It is located in the Jordan Valley, with the Jordan River to the east and Jerusalem to the west.

Jericho is one of the earliest continuous settlements in the world, dating perhaps from about 9000 BCE.

By about 8000 BCE the inhabitants had grown into an organized community capable of building a massive stone wall around the settlement, strengthened at one point at least by a massive stone tower. This first Neolithic culture of Palestine was a purely indigenous development.

These occupants were succeeded about 7000 BCE by a second group, bringing a culture that was still Neolithic and still not manufacturing pottery, though it was not indigenous.

About 2300 BCE there was once more a break in urban life. The nomadic newcomers, consisting of a number of different groups, were probably the Amorites. Their successors, about 1900 BCE, were the Canaanites, sharing a culture found the whole length of the Mediterranean littoral.

Jericho is famous in biblical history as the first town attacked by the Israelites under Joshua after they crossed the Jordan River (Joshua 6). After its destruction by the Israelites it was, according to the biblical account, abandoned until Hiel the Bethelite established himself there in the 9th century BCE (1 Kings 16:34).

Joshua tells the Israelites that they cannot harm Rahab or her family. The Israelites must practice herem, meaning that they must destroy everything as a sacrifice to God and keep nothing for themselves… unless, of course, they want to bring destruction to their nation.
