Well, I am heading back to Israel. In just a few days, I will be leading a group of 25 people as we head to Israel to study the Biblical land. I am excited about the opportunity to get back over there and to share my passion for Biblical Geography with those traveling with me. All of the arrangements have been made and finalized. The only thing left to do is to go over there and start enjoying the time. A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned in three different posts why I enjoy studying Biblical Geography. I enjoy teaching it to others. But, there is no better teacher of the land than the land itself. Standing on the top of the Mount of Olives, or floating on the Sea of Galilee allows you to appreciate the Bible in a completely different way. You understand why the Biblical writers wrote the way that they did. Nuances in the text that we often pass over become vitally important.
While we are traveling, I'll be posting blogs to the Exploring Bible Lands website as well as pictures to the Exploring Bible Lands Facebook page. If you have an interest in Biblical Geography, I encourage you to join us virtually as we travel through the land.
Until we arrive in Israel, shalom.
