When you come with us to the Holy Land, you combine pilgrimage and learning. You don’t have to choose between past and present, between then and now. You may be drawn to the Land to encounter Jesus in his neighborhood or to read the Bible on location. We are too. But that zeal for sacred history and personal growth need not exclude a zeal to understand modern realities in the Land.
If you come with us you will meet Jews, Christians and Muslims who will enrich (and complicate) your understanding of Jesus, history, God, and the challenges facing Israelis and Palestinians today. You will hear their stories, shed tears, and learn why simplistic “pro-Israel” or “pro-Palestine” narratives don’t advance the cause of peace.
The sites we visit will illuminate the world of Jesus, Judaism and early Christianity. They will also open our eyes, and hearts, to life in the Land today.
