MOUNT OF TEMPTATION: This harsh, bare mountain stands above the city of Jericho and the valley of the Jordan River. The panoramic view from its summit sweeps from the green oasis of Jericho to the Jordan Valley to the Dead Sea, and to the vast mountianous region surrounding it. It is locally known as Jabel Quruntul from forty the number of days in the Gospels account of Christ fast, when he withdrew into the wilderness after being baptized by John the Baptist in the near by Jordan River.
