Connecting the Bible with the Holy Land

by John Christopher

Christian eBook Publisher
 
I have recently been doing some reading in Luke, and I am compelled by what I have learned about this gospel. Though I find it difficult to find the time to read, as I am easily distracted, I know the importance of staying in touch with God's Word.  The writer, Luke the Evangelist, details the life of Christ from the events of his birth to his Ascension. It was written in the 1st Century, covering many of the miracles performed by Jesus and many of his teachings and parables.  Having recently visited The Holy Land, it is great to be able to place the towns and villages that are mentioned in the gospel. 
I was amazed by the distances covered on foot by Jesus and his disciples. Although Israel is such a svisiting tiberiasmall nation, the terrain covered, for example, from Galilee to Jericho, is harsh desert, dropping to 250 metres below sea level.  Far easier in a hire car!

Galilee itself is a very special place. There is definitely a still, peaceful spirit there. You can really picture Jesus preaching, teaching, healing, stepping back from the crowds into the surrounding hills to pray.  Indeed, at the south end of Galilee, where the river Jordan flows out and onwards towards the Dead Sea, is the place where John the Baptist baptized Christ.  Here, also, you can feel a strong and magnificent presence.

There is no place else in the world like it. And I am grateful for the opportunity to have visited. It just makes reading the Bible, like the book of Luke, for instance, that much more valid and powerful. The Bible has just become so much more alive for me and my faith has had a necessary boost!
