For a disciple of Jesus Christ, you don’t just take a trip to Israel – you make a pilgrimage!
You aren’t going to visit places; you are going to visit His places.
You aren’t going to walk “back” in time, you are going to walk “back” into His time.
Sure, we will visit places that are significant and important in other Bible stories, but what makes it most special is walking in the place He walked and being challenged to walk as He walked.
Jesus first invited His disciples to “come and see”.
You are invited to come and see – see Bethlehem where He was born, see Nazareth where He grew up, see Galilee where He called many of His disciples, see Jerusalem where He visited Father’s House and where He died and rose again!
Along the way He showed them that He was the Son of God and who they could become if they followed Him.
Jesus then invited His disciples to “follow Me”.
You are invited to follow Him into the hillsides of Galilee, the desert areas of Judea, and the cities, towns and villages of Capernaum, Caesarea Philippi, Magdala, and Jericho.
Along the way He taught them how to live lives of faith and righteousness.
Jesus then invited them to “go, preach” and to “remain in Me”.
You can do that without ever going to Israel, but I guarantee you will be challenged to greater obedience in sharing Him with others and greater faithfulness in abiding in Him by walking where He walked and considering how He wants you to walk.

“The search for significance is the most significant search of mankind. But if our significance is found in insignificant things, our search is itself insignificant.”
“Woodrow Kroll has been a frontline leader in the effort to bring back the Bible as the foundation of faith.”

“There surely is, as Amos said, a famine in our land for hearing the words of the Lord. Dr. Kroll issues a challenge that hopefully will result in a movement to turn that famine back into a feast.”
