Situated in the geographical middle zone of Israel, some 55 miles from Jerusalem and 62 miles from Tel Aviv, Beersheba, also known as Be'er Sheva is distinguished as the capital of the Negev. It is the region’s largest city with some 200,000 residents and the gateway to the southern part of Israel. While Beersheba is usually not on a normal Christian tour of Israel itinerary it is none the less an interesting area to learn about.

For those traveling to Israel whom want to visit Bethlehem, you’ll need to carry your passport, however crossing from Bethlehem from Jerusalem, and back is not a difficult matter, especially since the terminal between the two cities has been upgraded by establishing convenient lanes for tourists moving between them.
