Join fellow Christian Scientists on a Bible-study tour of a lifetime. The Scriptures will come alive with spiritual meaning as we walk the land of the Bible, visit significant Old and New Testament sites, and study God’s Word.
- Stand atop Mt. Nebo, the high point from which Moses and the Children of the Israel once viewed the Promised Land
- Walk the nature reserve of Ein Gedi where David hid from Saul
- Visit Tel Megiddo where many believe the last battle, “Armageddon,” will take place
- Engage with the unforgettable New Testament healings of Jesus’ ministry, as we visit sites throughout Jerusalem, Capernaum, and the Galilee region
The Holy Land has the capability of nourishing us with inspiration. When we learn more about the geographical places where specific events have happened and look beyond the mere physical attributes to the spiritual meaning behind the events in Scripture, are we not able to follow in the biblical pioneers' footsteps and be at one with those spiritual lessons all have left as their rich legacy?
Think of the bold contrasts evident in the geography of Israel – the peaks and valleys, the deserts and mountains, the rich fertile areas in the north and the arid, rocky landscape in the south! The lowest point on the earth’s surface is the Dead Sea. One could be sweltering in the heat of the Dead Sea while gazing at the snow-capped mountain of Hermon.
This land has been divided into a variety of topography, climates, agricultures, altitudes, fauna, and flora. Scholars segregate the territory from the Mediterranean Sea to the desert into seven sections running west to east: (1) the coastal plain of fertile farmland; (2) the low hills or Shephelah; (3) the central range broken up by (4) the Jezreel Valley and running into (5) the Negev Desert; (6) the Jordan Valley, which lies between the mountains of Judea and Samaria; and (7) the Eastern Range.
The traveler is full of wonder and awe as he or she ponders the land's raw characteristics of harshness and turmoil, beauty, and tranquility. It shouldn’t surprise us that this region has captured the hearts and imaginations of so many peoples. Bible scholar, Alfred Edersheim, reiterates: “Events, not places; spiritual realities, not their outward surroundings, have been given to mankind by the land of Palestine.”
