The Holy Land has often been called the fifth gospel. It includes the Sea of Galilee, the Galilee, the Dead Sea, the Jordan, going up to Jerusalem, Samaria. The geography of the land is a crucial factor to the story. As the nascent church moves out into the larger world after Jesus’ resurrection, the geography of the Roman world, including the very names of the New Testament epistles, shapes the story. Hear why the geography of the New Testament is essential for understanding and, far from being incidental, is almost a character in each episode of the journey as it unfolds.
