Jericho is the oldest town in the world with a town wall, and the oldest settlement that has been continuously inhabited for more than 10 000 years.
Jericho is the first town conquered by Joshua son of Nun, successor of Moses. In Joshua 1, Old Statement, we read that God will lead Israeli people to their new land. And in Joshua 2, Joshua son of Nun, sends two spies to Jericho. Then the Israeli people cross river Jordan. The most interesting part is described in Joshua 6, where God told to Israeli people to march for 6 days around the walls of the town, and then 7 times on the 7th day with priests blowing the trumpets and all people shouting loud and as a result the town walls of Jericho would be knocked down. The town was destroyed. And the people who undertakes to rebuild the town was cursed.
