Sites - Israel: Plain of Sharon
Ancient Israel

Plain of Sharon in Wikipedia The Sharon Plain (Hebrew: שרון‎) is the northern half of the coastal plain of Israel. Its largest city is Netanya. The Plain lies between the Mediterranean Sea to the west and the Samarian Hills, 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) to the east. It stretches from Haifa and Mount Carmel in the north to the Yarkon River in the south, at the edge of the present city of Tel Aviv, about 90 kilometres (56 mi). Parts of the Plain are included in the Haifa, Center, and Tel Aviv Districts of Israel. In 2008 The Sharon Plain was home to 1,131,600 people[1], 965,300 of them (85.3%) are Jews, and 166,300 (14.6%) are Arabs. The Plain of Sharon is mentioned in the Bible. In ancient times, the plain was particularly fertile and populous. Zionist immigrants arrived in the early 20th century, and populated the region with many settlements.[2] In 2008, it was the most densely populated region of Israel.[3]

Plain of Sharon Travel Information For Isaiah, the Plain of Sharon was the ultimate symbol of beauty. It was also the region from which Christianity set sail to the world. Today, the Sharon region boasts beautiful farmland as well as flourishing cities, while the biblical names endure and the sites still tell their ancient tales. Lydda (today called Lod) in the southern Sharon is where Peter healed Aeneas, and “all those who lived Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned toward the Lord” (Acts 9:34). In the seaport of Joppa, where King Hiram of Tyre sent the Cedars of Lebanon to Solomon to build the Temple, Peter raised Tabitha from the dead (Acts 9:36-40). Joppa was also the scene of Peter`s rooftop vision at the house of Simon the Tanner (Acts 10:9-16). The vision led him straight to the great city of Caesarea in the northern Sharon, and to Cornelius, who, thanks to Peter, became the first gentile to accept Christianity. From Caesarea`s busy port, ships set sail far and wide; many Christians must have embarked on their journey from here, carrying their new faith to distant lands. Paul`s missionary journeys brought him to Caesarea (Acts 18:22; 21:8); he was also imprisoned there, appeared before King Agrippa II, and then boarded a ship for Rome (Acts 25 and 26). The Sharon, with its beauty, historical and spiritual riches, is still a region of splendor and of glories yet unseen (Isaiah 35:2). (Israel Minister of Tourism)
