What is the significance of Beit Shean in the bible?

Asked 3 years ago

I've seen the name Beit She'an come up in the bible a few times. How old is it? Did anything happen there?

In 1 Samuel 31:10-12, we read that King Saul and his three sons were hung on the wall of Beth Shan after being killed by the Philistines on Mount Gilboa. It is believed that this city came into existence before the 11th century BC.
