From the City of Cain to Babylon. -The origins of the city, in biblical revelation, are
not to be found in Eden, nor can they be rooted satisfactorily in the mandate to
Adam and Eve. Rather, the first city is built by Cain the murderer, the rejector of
the word and presence of the Lord (Gen. 4). Instead of wandering under the
protection of God, Cain chooses to settle in the land of Nod and build a city. The
city becomes a sign of fallen man's quest for security apart from God. It is
important to note ...

to the village or city. Smaller villages sought the protection of nearby cities. That
is the meaning of the expression, “and its surrounding settlements,” added to the
name ofa city (Num. 21:25; 32:42). In return for the protection offered against
nomadic attacks, the cities received payment in service and produce. Sometimes
a city was protected by a feudal lord around or near whose fortress the city was
built. Often it depended entirely on the strength of its walls and the bravery of its

Chapter 4 THE CITY IN THE SCRIPTURES Any biblical theology of the city
ultimately is a theology about two cities: the city of man and the city of God. The
story of Scripture, therefore, is “a tale of two cities.” the civitas Dei and the civitas
mundi. Perhaps that is why we find that scripture opens with a city built by Cain
and closes with a city built by God. (Walter Kaiser) TOWARD AN URBAN
HERMENEUTIC Conventional wisdom seems to believe that spiritual retreat can
best be found in a ...

Ancient cities were usually built on high points of land near water supplies, and
when a city was destroyed a new city was built on the same site atop the packed
and settled debris from the former city. Thus, over time, cities came to be on top of
high mounds of compacted ruins. Ai was not rebuilt; therefore it remained a heap
of ruins. The Hebrew word (tel) for heap is found in only a few places in the Bible
(8:28; Deut. 13:16; 11:13; Jer. 30:18; 49:2), and in such place names in the Bible

The city is known today by its Arabic name, Aricha. The original city was built
directly over the largest spring in Palestine, which still waters the region. By
Jesus' time it was about a mile south of that spot. The road from Jerusalem to
Jericho passes through the Wadi Qelt, the beautiful canyon that opens onto fertile
plains 825 feet below sea level, on which the city is built. Jericho is particularly
famous for three major biblical references: Joshua's siege (Josh. 6), Jesus'
parable of the Good ...
