Roads in Bible times hosted different kinds of travelers, just like the roadways we travel today. Consider the types of roads traveled in and near the Promised Land and identify roads that generally match them in your home area.

      I travel on mostly local roads that would compare to the Ridge Route and the Jericho Gezer Road, but also have nearby interstate roads that allow far greater travel like the International and Kings Roads.

      Although we do not have an International Highway, we do have a few Interstate Highways. We could also compare the Ridge Route of moving North and South. Since, this is the only way to travel to Northern Florida and to the Florida Keys.

      I live near I-95 – which is connecting Florida to Main. I 95 is like the international highway connecting Egypt – Syria and other countries East and West. The other North-South like the Ridge road is like I-81 which is more hilly, going from Canada to Knoxville. The Gezer – Jericho road is like route 30 from Philadelphia going west. For Delaware, the King Highway could be route 1.

      City streets connect neighborhoods and cities, while highways allow you to travel from one end of your providence or state. They are used mostly by local people. These would be like the Ridge Routes or Jericho-Gezer Road in Bible times Interstate expressways will connect providences or states and used heavily for commerce like the International and Kings HIghway.

      There are 4 road systems in the Promised Land, namely the International Highway, King’s Highway, the Ridge route, and Jericho Gezer Road. The first two roads are generally used for the movement of international trade goods and the movement of armies. The locals use the other two roads.
      We have only three road systems in my city: the highway connecting the major cities, airport, and important tourist spots; housing estate roads mainly used by the locals in the respective residential areas and roads leading to the various villages in the rural area.
      The highways are broader, consisting of four or five lanes, while the estate roads are hard-surface roads but are narrower. The roads to the villages in the rural areas are mostly gravel roads. A gravel road is a type of unpaved road surfaced with gravel that has been brought to the site from a quarry.
