Today is an absolutely beautiful day here in Jerusalem – it is lovely!
And today in my blog, I want to put aside the news and commentary to write an invitation to you to visit The Holy Land.
There truly is nowhere else like it on earth…
You know – many of us have spent our lives learning from the Bible. From the early years we have gained an idea of what the land of the Bible is like. We learned on the felt boards in our Sunday School, and were given impressions from Hollywood movies.
But there is no substitute for being here breathing the air and walking on the soil. Sure – a lot has indeed changed over the millennium – but then again a lot hasn't.
One of the most emotive places for me to be is the Galilee… those hills haven't changed – and they are real… and being upon them reminds me that Jesus spoke real words to real people – and I can trust the Bible's account – as sure as the hills I traverse are real – so are His words.
I'd like to encourage you to come and visit us this June here in the Holy Land. Check out: www.leseatours.com for more information. We got a trip coming up in June and we'd love to see you take advantage of it!
It is not only my guarantee, but the guarantee of time, that the Bible will come alive and you will never read it the same… as you learn about the environment Jesus grew up, lived, and taught in.
We'll see you here!
