The Death of the Dead Sea

Israel Today | by | Volume 28, Issue 6 | November - December 2022

Lying at the bottom of the Earth’s deepest fault, the Dead Sea is 396 metres below sea level.[1] It is the saltiest body of water in the world and holds large quantities of valuable minerals. The earliest reference in the Bible calls it the Salt Sea (Gen 14:3), and it is also known as the Sea of the Plain (Deut 4:49) and the East Sea (Ezek 47:18). There are other indirect references to the Dead Sea in the Scriptures.
