We invite you to trace Christianity from its roots, through its conflicts and difficult times to its presence in the Holy Land today.
Embedded in the soil of Israel the ruins of empires lost allow us to better understand the backdrop to the early days of Christianity. From amongst the ancient empires Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Canaanites, Israelites, ancient Greeks and Romans, rose a new faith that would exceed all of its predecessor in size and influence.
The life of Jesus was spent entirely in the Holy Land so that one can trace Christianity here from its roots, and walk in His footsteps. Some of the New Testament sights remain almost unchanged, a window into the land and era that inspired a religion.
However peaceful Christ's teachings were, his message was not always accepted and sometimes misconstrued. A clash of cultures and spiritual zeal brought Israel to the forefront during centuries of bloody religious conflicts and battles. The mighty fortresses and battlefields still exist as monuments to the religious fervor of Crusaders and Arab warriors fighting in the name of God.
Apart from notable historical and religious events , Christianity has had a role throughout the entire span of Israel's existence. Through the kind actions of common Christians, through clergy intervention for conflict resolution to evangelists who preach the word of God, Christianity contributed to the people and the land.
Today Israel is a divided land where religion, politics, emotion and ethnicity all find their way into vibrant debate. Never has the land and its people been in such a dire need for a peaceful, uniting and inspiring message.
