In 73 AD Masada, the impregnable mountain fortress in the Judaean desert, stood as the final holdout against the onslaught of Rome’s legions. The siege that followed would mark the final, bloody suppression of the Jewish revolt with an encounter whose awe inspiring remains can still be seen in the desert today!

Herod The Great had his winter palace built on Masada (Fortress, in Hebrew) from 37-31 BCE. Herod died in 4 CE (AD) and a small number of Roman soldiers served as guards there. Jewish Zealots objected to Roman Rule. Rebellion started in the north, in Galilee, in 66 CE. The Jewish Zealots were defeated and then the Temple and Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 CE. Zealots overtook the Roman soldiers on Masada and took this location for their Jewish people. What followed was a siege of Masada by the Romans followed by the destruction of Masada's double stone walls and the final constructed wooden wall. The Jewish leader, Elazar ben Yair gave his powerful final speech to the Jewish community. This video is the history of Masada and the Jewish Zealots' stronghold from 70-73 CE.

Situated between Eng'edi and Sodom, it is detached from the surrounding escarpment, approximately 650 x 450 metres, and 450 metres above Dead Sea level. Being remote and with natural defences, an impressive fortress was built on the plateau during the second temple period. The story of Masada is recorded by Flavius Josephus, who commanded the Galilee district during the great revolt and eventually surrendered to the Romans. He was taken to Rome where he chronicled the revolt for posterity. Josephus wrote that the first fortress at Masada was built by Jonnathan, probable brother of Judah the Macabbee, high priest in 152 BC. Herod ruled from 37 to 4 BC and was aware of the strategic importance of Masada.

Zahi Shaked A tour guide in Israel and his camera email@example.com +972-54-6905522 tel סיור עם מורה הדרך ומדריך הטיולים צחי שקד 0546905522 My name is Zahi Shaked In 2000 I became a registered liscenced tourist guide. My dedication in life is to pass on the ancient history of the Holy Land. Following upon many years of travel around the world, which was highlighted by a very exciting emotional and soul-searching meeting with the Dalai Lama, I realized that I had a mission. To pass on the the history of the Holy Land, its religions, and in particular, the birth and development of Christianity. In order to fulfill this "calling" in the best way possible, I studied in depth, visited, and personally experienced each and every important site of the ancient Christians. I studied for and received my first bachelors degree in the ancient history of the Holy Land, and am presently completing my studies for my second degree.(Masters) Parralel to my studies, and in order to earn a living, I was employed for many years in advertising. What I learned there was how to attract the publics attention, generate and, increase interest, and assimilate information. All this I use as tools to describe, explain and deepen the interest in the sites that we visit. From my experience, I have learned that in this way, the Holy Land becomes more than just history, and that the large stones that we see scattered about in dissaray, join together one by one until they become - a Byzantine Church. This also happens when I lead a group of Pilgrims in the Steps of Jesus. We climb to the peak of Mount Precipice, "glide" over the land to the Sea of Galilee, land on the water and "see" the miracle which enfolds before us. This is a many faceted experience. Not only history which you will remember and cherish, but an experience which I hope will be inplanted in your hearts and minds, and will accompany you all the days of your life.
Masada, a fortress built out of fear, becomes a national shrine and symbol for Israel.
