Day 11 - Jerusalem
Saturday Apr 02 2022
12:00 am UTC
Today is the conclusion of our study trip in historical, beautiful Israel. I’ve learned so much during this time about the Bible and the culture of Israel. I’ve met amazing people whom I look forward to building even greater relationships with in the future. I have been challenged to look...
Day 10 - Jerusalem, Mount of Olives, Southern Steps, Western Wall
Friday Apr 01 2022
12:00 am UTC
As the result of a slight mishap with our bus, we found ourselves with an extended time at the Sea of Galilee in lawn chairs overlooking the water, which no one was particularly disappointed with. If there was a spiritual lesson in this, perhaps it was that, like Jesus, we cannot stay at the quiet sea,...
Day 09 - Bet She'an, Zippori, Boundary Stones, Jordan River
Thursday Mar 31 2022
12:00 am UTC
I am part of a small group of us on this trip who was supposed to go to Israel in 2020. I have had a lot of time to build up expectations of what I thought this trip and what Israel would be like.
On this trip, I am continually struck by the tension of seeing grand ruin structures constructed by “great”...
What a beautiful day in a beautiful country with beautiful people.
Physically, today was a lighter day. We did minimal walking, but what we saw, learned, and experienced was difficult to fathom in its magnitude, even in processing it now.
In Gamla, we learned about the passion of the zealots. In...
Day 07 - Tel Hazor, Tel Dan, Caesarea Philippi, Omrit
Tuesday Mar 29 2022
12:00 am UTC
“He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
Each morning we are told the parable of the sower. As we walk the ancient paths and hear the stories, do we merely listen, or really HEAR?
We enjoyed the beauty of nature that is Tel Dan. We saw there Jeroboam’s temple...
Day 06 - Arbel, Chorazin, Betsaida, Capernaum, Aremos Topos
Sunday Mar 27 2022
11:00 pm UTC
Mt. Arbel was an enlightening encounter with the reality of the incredible gifts of the world we live in. Walking, exploring, engaging, communing, and hopefully listening to our Maker was powerful. To encounter this beautiful place along the Sea of Galilee and walk in the places where Jesus walked with...
Day 05 - Caesarea Maritime, Mt. Carmel, Megiddo, Sea of Galilee
Saturday Mar 26 2022
8:00 pm UTC
We gravitate towards the big and the loud, the dramatic and the colorful.
And while God speaks through both large and little, I wonder if our focus on the impressive entertainment of our world or even the amazing moves of God is causing us to miss out on His whisper?
On the rocks of Mount Carmel...
At a cave on the way to the Herodium, we gathered to discuss the passionate hospitality of people in the area. The possibility of the birth of Jesus in a similar place in the shadow of Herod’s palace made us consider the commercialization of the real Christmas story. As we search for spiritual...
We went to the desert today — not like the sandy deserts we see in movies, but the desert of the Bible. The one that teaches lessons to those who seek to find. We learn to seek and find water, community, the path, and ourselves in the struggles and satisfaction of the desert.
Understanding Israel and the purpose of the promised land is understanding the geography and its symbolism. Today, we left the spring green and exchanged it for the austerity of the wilderness — dry, coarse desert. But the Lord uses the desert as a teacher, to engage us in trials that leave us...
Israel is not what I thought it would be, which is good because I had placed it in a box. The fullness of the land’s story cannot be contained, nor can it be ignored. The story is conceptually geographical and spiritual. In the visuals of the geography, we hear the story of God’s plan for...
