About this trip
The Good News of Christ is revealed in history. We know God and God’s saving power through words that were spoken and events that occurred at particular times and places in the Holy Land. I invite you to come with us and visit the places where the history of our salvation was played out, the places where Jesus taught and worked His signs, where He offered Himself in sacrifice, and where He rose and ascended. To visit
these places and to worship in them connects us with the history of our salvation with a special immediacy, and makes it more real. Jesus was very much aware of His physical surroundings,
seeing the place where a teaching was given or
parable told can give us a new and more lively understanding of passages that had seemed obscure on paper. I am excited at the opportunity to visit the Holy Land and to share with you the wonder and the power of these holy places.
