Valley of Josaphat

[Absalom's Pillar, Valley of Josaphat]Article

A place which the prophet Joel tells us is to be the scene of the Last Judgment (Joel 3). Identified by some with the Valley of the Cedron, a ravine situated between Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives, regarded as the valley of judgment, probably because since the time of the kings of Juda, it was the principal cemetery of Jerusalem.
