The Second Annual Bible Marathon

How cool is this?! The second Bible Marathon will be taking place this Friday starting in Rosh Ha'ayin where runners will be following in the footsteps of the first marathon man who ran the 42k from the battlefield at Eben Ezer (modern day Rosh Ha'ayin) to Shiloh. 

According to the Bible, in the beginning of the Book of Samuel it is written “then a man of Benjamin ran from the battle line the same day, and came to Shiloh with his clothes torn”. The “man of Benjamin” runs from Eben Ezer to Ancient Shiloh to tell of the end of the war between the Israelites and the Philistines. The runner’s mission is to inform Eli, the priest of Israel, of the defeat in the war, the death of his sons and the capture of the Ark of the Covenant.
