Southern Steps: How to Finish Well

/

Sitting on the ancient steps entering Herod’s Temple, cut from the bedrock in Christ day–we are transported back to the day Jesus came as a baby into the Temple. From Luke 2:22-38 we are confronted with two Spirit filled saints. Their names: Simeon and Anna. Their lives: in step with the Spirit. Their ages: very […]

Caesarea’s Seaport: Sendoff Prayers

/

Sitting on the ancient dock of the seaport Paul used during his missionary journeys, leads us to the message of Acts 20:36. Paul exemplifies the holy habit of praying with those who set off on trips. As Paul ask for safety and blessing before he traveled–so should we!

City of David Palace Rooftop: Beware of Unguarded Moments

/

We stand remembering David’s fall into sin and the grave consequences as captured in II Samuel 11:1-5 from a rooftop over the excavation area where David’s Palace stood. The view looking down into the modern day homes clinging to the steep hillside reminds us how dangerous it was for David to lustfully look at his […]

Sea of Galilee: Remembering Christ is Our Refuge

/

On the quiet waters of the Sea of Galilee, surrounded by the roads that crisscrossed the Land of Israel in Christ’s day, we remember the six cities of refuge from Joshua 20:7-8 and how they portray Christ. As Hebrews 6:18 reminds us, we are to flee to Jesus our Refuge each time we feel: unclean […]

Herodian: Holding Tight to God’s Promises

/

Sitting on the side of the mountain Herod built, we open to Matthew 2 and consider one of the greatest and most powerful kings of all time–Herod the Great. As we look at the largest palace complex ever built in the ancient world, and think of all his wealth, power, splendor and achievements–we are reminded […]

Capernaum Synagogue: Feeling the Touch of Jesus

/

As we watch Christ through Peter’s eyes in Mark 1:41, we see the compassion in Christ’s touch of the leper who came to Him in this place so long ago. Like the leper we all come defiled and hopeless to the feet of Jesus, and we look up asking for His touch. In love Jesus […]

Pool of Siloam: Wash My Eyes, I want to See Jesus

/

Starting in John 9, we sit by the Pool of Siloam and remember that Jesus opened our blind eyes at salvation, but how quickly they can dim. As Revelation 3:17 reminds us, we need to avoid spiritual cataracts caused by the infectious materialistic world we live in. Avoid the lust for comfort and convenience; and […]

Jerusalem’s Herodian Street: Building for Eternity

/

From the remains of 1st Century Jerusalem’s streets built by Herod, and walked by Christ and His Apostles, we are reminded to build our lives for eternity. We are each given one life to invest for Jesus, is yours going to fade or last for eternity? As we study II Peter 3:11 and II Timothy […]

Adullam: Surviving Cave Times

/

Under the great oak tree at the foot of the cave of Adullam, First Samuel 22 comes alive as we see David at his lowest point. In this time of depression and distress David walks out of the darkness of the cave and in Psalm 142, teaches us the lesson of looking up and seeing […]

Caesarea: Living Full, Satisfied, and Overflowing

/

From Caesarea by the Sea (Maritima) and in John 7:38, God’s Word poses us with a fundamental question about how we live each day of our lives. Are you living what God designed you to be? He wants us to be: full, satisfied, and overflowing with Christ. Join us in this study, and start making […]

Roman Decapolis: Confronting our Pagan Culture

/

From the ruins of a Roman city of the Decapolis called Scythopolis (Beth Shean) we learn from Acts 14, 16, and 17 the price that Paul paid for confronting his culture, and the courage God can give us to stand for Him against great obstacles.
