Tel Dan High Place

This video by BYU professor Bill Hamblin is about the high place at Tel Dan in northern Israel. The structure was made by Jeroboam who was the first king of the northern kingdom of Israel following the death of Solomon. He had the structure built to prevent his people from traveling to Jerusalem to visit the temple there. Jerusalem was the capital of the southern kingdom of Judah and the two kingdoms were bitter rivals at times.
