I've been wanting to climb up to Susita for sometime now. Today I had the time and it was a deliciously beautiful day. Hiking up the steep inclines I was again amazed at the ancient people who would build a city on a hill like that and climbing up and downwithout cars or modern roads. These were tough people back then - including Jesus and his disciples. 
Susita was one of 10 cities in the Greek Decapolis. The progression of ownership went from the Greeks to the Maccabees to the Romans to the Byzantine (Catholics) and ultimately to the Muslims before it collapsed in an earthquake in the 700s.
We remember Jesus here when we read Mark 5:20, "Then the man went off and began to proclaim in the Decapolis what Jesus had done for him; and all were amazed."
