Burning Trash Dump?

Todd Bolen, at BiblePlaces.org, has an interesting study of some of the myths and realities of Gehenna/ge-hinnom. Louis at Baker Book House Church Connection also has a few words on the subject. Here is a quote from the Bolen post:

“Thus already in Old Testament times, the Valley of Hinnom was associated with the destiny of the wicked.  That the valley was just outside the city of Jerusalem made it an appropriate symbol for those excluded from divine blessing.”
