      Car Rental for Masada and the Dead Sea. Many visitors choose to rent a car to get to the Dead Sea and Masada If you plan to stay overnight in the region, or would like to explore by yourself, perhaps beyond the most popular tourist sites, and have wondered how to get to the Dead Sea & Masada, this can be a good idea. The only source we have for the story of Masada, and numerous other reported events from the time, is the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus, author of the book “The Jewish War”. Had Josephus not written it and had it not come down to us, no-one would have thought a mass suicide had taken place on the desert plateau.

        "It is a place of ancient doom which time has turned into a symbol of the pride of a new nation," wrote Ronald Harker in the Observer book on Masada, published in Author: Harriet Sherwood. Perched high above the Dead Sea and Judean Desert, Masada National Park was a great fortification built by King Herod. Today the well-kept remains offer staggering views as well as a fascinating insight into Roman history and one of the most famed acts of Jewish rebellion.

      Masada (suggests the word “fortress” in Hebrew) Masada had been built up as a Roman fortress by Harod in the 30s BC. AD- the First Jewish Revolt starts up. -Between 66 and 68 AD a super radical splinter group of Zealots, the Sicarii, overtook the Roman garrison at Masada and moved in. From this location they raided nearby Roman towns. Josephus, War of the Jews: Book VII () Read the story of Masada in the words of Josephus. Chapters 8–10 deal specifically with Masada. Masada, Tragic Fortress in the Sky (Times of Israel) A fairly lengthy article about the site, and an interesting read if you can ignore the over-abundant ads.
