Putting Israel On The Map
Like you, I have spent many hours inside of my Bible. Also, like you, I know the names of the places: Bethlehem, Nazareth, Jerusalem, The Sea Of Galilee, Capernum, The Jordan River, etc. These are the places where IT all happened. You know, the big IT. Of course, I am talking about Jesus’ life and His work.
The knowledge I was lacking, however, was the geography. I had no idea where Bethlehem was in relation to Nazareth, for example. Or the Sea Of Galilee in relation to Jerusalem.
One of the first things I did in planning this pilgrimage was make a list of the places I wanted to make sure we got to. Then I spent time studying the map to make sure getting to these places was feasible. It was a challenge!
And so, my list of important places:
3. Sea of Galilee
6. Jordan River
7. Dea Sea
I was able to put all of these places on the map and come up with a plan. As you will see in future posts, this is a pilgrimage and not a vacation. My plan has had hiccups and changes. I have decided to put all of the planning into the hands of God. My part involves much time on my hands and knees in prayer.
The adventure continues, stay tuned!
