Our 11:00am Adult Bible Class
A personal highlight in the lives of many Christians is a tour in Israel, the “land of the Book.” There is something special about visiting the place where God revealed himself to the world through his relationship with this nation and people. It is inspiring to follow the footsteps of Jesus, to stand in the places where he taught and even where he died for us and rose again. It is a unique joy to visit so many of these places where “at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, [and] in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son” (Heb. 1:1-2). The Bible comes alive in a new way, and you read it differently than you did before.
However, a trip to Israel is expensive and requires significant time, stamina and mobility. Many would like to go, but are not able to make the journey, at least not yet. Still, they would love to see some of these places and reflect on God’s word as it relates to the specific geographic context in which the story of the Bible unfolds. I have created this booklet to bring some of these locations to you and to share some of things I would talk about if we were able to visit these sites together.
It is my sincere hope that you gain some of the benefit of such a trip by spending some devotional time considering the story of the book as you travel day-by-day from one site to another. The locations are laid out chronologically from Abraham to Paul to give you something of an overview of the story of the Book.
30 Days with Paul On Mission is a devotional booklet written by Pastor Bob Carlson with photos and reflections on related passages of scripture from his time in travelling through the cities of Paul from Philippi to Ephesus.
