The Geography of the Cities of the Plain


by Steven Collins PhD

Tradition seems to provide the only support for a southern Dead Sea location for the Genesis Cities of the Plain. The biblical text clearly supports their location north of the Dead Sea, on the east side of the Jordan River, in a circular, alluvial area known in the Old Testament, particularly in Genesis, as the Kikkar. This paper provides a detailed textual analysis of this geography.
