About:

The Wilderness of Zin is an inhospitable desert located in the Arabah. It is part of the area that the Israelites wandered through for 40 years before coming to the promised land. Several important miracles occurred there, such as manna and quail, water from the rock, and Korah’s family devoured by the earth. It is also famous as the location T. E. Lawrence was exploring before he was drafted into the British army.
