Pastor Warren Graff and I are putting together a tour of Israel (with an optional extension to Jordan) for this June, 2015.

“In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee … and Jesus went out … to the villages of Caesarea Philippi … and they came to Capernaum; and when He was in the house … and Jesus entered Jerusalem and came into the temple.” (Mark 1:9, 8:27, 9:33, 11:11)

Our Lord has his own history. It’s wall-to-wall with real places, with dirt roads and stone walkways, with actual cities and the homes and hang-outs of real people with names. We all come from our own time, our own places—our lives trek from our home-town on to the other places we’ve lived, from events that happened when we were in school, to world shaking events we experience as adults. Jesus is the Lord over all, having created and now upholding the stars of the heavens and the crustaceans of the deep seas, who has bound himself to actual history and geography just as we are bound to ours.

This is the geography and history he entered in his work of going to the cross to save those who belong to every age, every topography. Join us as we visit some of these places, as we read and study his Word together on this trip, and as we contemplate and give thanks for his great work of salvation for us at Calvary, outside of Jerusalem, under Pontius Pilate.
