A little over two years ago, my wife and I took a trip to Israel and Jordan to see some of the lands mentioned in the Bible. Those ten days were amazing and completely changed the way that we read the Bible. We used to read over the geographical locations. Now, we pause to consider how that relates to the stories. For most of my life, I knew the Bible stories. Now, I understand them. I have been able to answer many Biblical questions that I did not even realize that I needed to ask. Questions like:
- When Rahab assisted the spies in getting out of Jericho, she told them to hide in the mountain. Why did she tell them that?
- When David fought Goliath, what was the vantage point of the Philistines as they watched their champion fall to the ground?
- When Jesus told his disciples the story of the Good Samaritan, he referenced the road between Jerusalem and Jericho, but didn't mention any details about the road. Why?
We have built this site to help you get the answers to some of those questions as well. Of course, this website will be a continual work in progress. We will add new information to it and post those updates to our Facebook page. Feel free to ask us any questions that you may have. If we don't know the answer, we'll try to go and find it.
In the meantime, enjoy the site and remember to explore Bible lands.
