I’m currently writing a Bible study on the parables, and all the reading I’m doing about them is making me really antsy to go visit the land where Jesus walked. I’ve become desensitized to the fact that God became man at a certain time, in a certain space. I talk so much about Jesus, and intellectually I know He existed in history— but so often He becomes a character in a book rather than a man who really walked in the land of Palestine.
I’ve always heard that visiting the Holy Land changes the way you read Scripture. I can’t wait to experience it for myself.
