Your experience of studying the Bible takes on new and richer significance when you experience the Land and are able to see where so much of biblical history takes place. It is here where God chose to reveal, in real time, the unfolding promise of his faithful presence and love. The Land brings the words of Scripture into clearer focus and remains forever part of your reading and hearing the word of God. You have a richer appreciation of some of the images used by biblical writers who try to make God audible to our senses. This place was their world: the mountains that surround Jerusalem, the image of a shepherd, the importance of rain and dew, the beauty of Carmel, a tree in a barren waste-land, streams in the desert, a rock that gives shade, the walls of Jerusalem… these and countless more bring the Bible to life. It is a trip that only begins when it ends because you will never read the Bible in the same way!
