Two Wells

Dothan, from the Hebrew meaning two wells, was an ancient town in the tribal territory of Manasseh (see Tribal Lands), west of The Jordan River, northeast of the city of Samaria, southeast of Megiddo (see Armageddon). The town, which was the scene of a number of important events in Bible History, is today a ruin.

Joseph Sold Into Slavery

It was at Dothan that Joseph's brothers threw him into "one of the pits," perhaps referring to one of the two wells.

Chariots of Fire

It was at Dothan that "the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha."
