It’s easy to think of the Bible as a collection of short stories, but each one makes up a greater story – one story of a God who created the universe and entrusted it to His human partners to care for it. They were unfaithful, and it fell back into chaos and sin. But God didn’t give up on His creation. He decided to redeem it, preparing the way through His covenant with Israel and finally by sending His son, Jesus, to become the cornerstone of it all through His life, death, resurrection, and ascension.
What would this mean for a people oppressed by the Roman Empire, and what does it mean for believers today? Hike through the Galilee region, explore the ruins of Rome, and kneel on the stones of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as you discover the mission of Jesus.
