AnswerThe best answer is actually from a quote by Josephus which states the circumference of Jerusalem in his day as 33 stadia, which equals 4.5 English miles. That would make the area within the walls of Jerusalem about 960 acres, 1.5 sq mi. Many archeologists believe that the walls of Jerusalem were about the same in both Nehemiah's day and Jesus' day.
