This morning I was frustrated with some silly things. Primarily technology, and the spotty internet, and my inability to finish my silly blog because of the aforementioned silly things. Then we got on the bus and made the winding trip up the side of Mount Arbel. From the parking lot, it is a fairly steep… Continue reading Perspective

Medusa Heads and Moses’ Seat

“Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I tell you, it will be more bearable on the day of judgment for Tyre and Sidon, than for you.” Matthew… Continue reading Medusa Heads and Moses’ Seat

Two-Edged Swords and Tent Pegs

The Bible is full of unexpected stories! As some would say – you can’t make this stuff up! One chapter after we read about a left-handed warrior of God who fashioned an 18-inch long two-edged sword and sneakily stabbed it into the belly of a very fat, very bad king (so fat that the sword went… Continue reading Two-Edged Swords and Tent Pegs

“Israel – a Nice Little Country in a Bad Neighborhood!”

We’ve been up for nearly 36 hours. I’ve written, let’s see, six partial paragraphs that either don’t make sense, or don’t make sense. (That makes sense, right?) Every few minutes, I doze off, and my chin slides off its prop on my fist and jolts me awake again. But before I can sleep I need… Continue reading “Israel – a Nice Little Country in a Bad Neighborhood!”

Here We Go Again!

I can’t tell you how many times over the last twelve months I have thought about the three little boys and four little girls (two with beautiful “ruddy” hair like King David) that we encountered in a tiny settlement in the West Bank. Jewish children, living in the West Bank (populated by many Palestinians,) picnicking… Continue reading Here We Go Again!

It’s Here! It’s HERE!

I get a little antsy waiting for Christmas, Fridays, payday, and the next Star Wars movie. But I REALLY have been anticipating this - the release of the first video in the BIble Land Passages series! This film is entitled "Jerusalem: An Unforgettable City" and it is really, really, really good (even if I am a bit biased!) And if you're… Continue reading It’s Here! It’s HERE!

We’re Going Back…Want To Come With Us?

"I would not trade my experience for ten vacations to other places." So said Gary Massey after our group's return this past spring from a whirlwind trip through the fascinating land that we read about in the Bible. And I wholeheartedly agree. My personal experience in the land of Israel changed my perspective, softened my heart, deepened my love… Continue reading We’re Going Back…Want To Come With Us?

The Bible Lands Project Is Just Beginning!

During Jesus’ final earthly days, He made His way from Jericho back toward Jerusalem, knowing the “brood of vipers” that He would face there. Luke 19 records how He drew near to Bethany, and acquired a colt to carry Him the rest of the way. As the colt must have carefully picked its way down… Continue reading The Bible Lands Project Is Just Beginning!
