City of David



Today the City of David is a major archeological site, thought to be the place where Kind David built his palace and established his temple. It was very narrow and rose steeply on the east side. The location was chosen because of its water source, the Gihon Spring. During the reign of Hezekiah the city was expanded and became what is now called the Old City of Jerusalem. In the New Testament, Bethlehem was called the City of David (Luke 2:4 and Luke 2:11).
