Fleeing from Shaul (Saul), King David leaves Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) and heads south to the wilderness of Yehuda (Judea), where he must survive with a scarce water supply. The Judean desert, pictured above, is geographically unique. It is located adjacent to the Jerusalem mountains, which receive ample rainfall. Just a few kilometers away however, the amount of rainfall decreases dramatically as a result of a geographical phenomenon called a “rain shadow desert.”
