Valley of the Shadow
Many years ago I was told that the Valley of the Shadow of Death was an actual place; a narrow valley in Israel where you could only walk in single file, and enemies could easily drop stuff on you. These days I'm a bit more sceptical of claims made in sermons, and I've been trying to check this out. So far I can't find anything to support the claim, so do any Shipmates know if there is a geographical location? If so, why did it get its name?
