For those who are not fortunate enough to behold the Holy Land Nov 13, 2006
This is a marvelous book which takes you on an exciting photographic tour of the Holy Land of Israel. For those who are not fortunate enough or can not afford to go to the Holy Land of Israel, they can now make a pilgrimage through this book. The book covers many biblical sites in the Holy Land; beautiful churches; cities like Jerusalem, Nazareth & Bethlehem; famous landmarks and tombs, with a note on every picture mentioning its significance and relevance. The book contains spectacular pictures of the Holy Land taken by the Israeli photographer Hanan Isachar, capturing its aesthetic beauty and spirit throughout and taking you to the places where Jesus was born and grew up; where He preached and performed miracles; where He died and rose again, sites which have attracted millions of pilgrims for almost 2000 years. Some of the top-view pictures depicting the landscape of Israel and spanning over the two pages measuring 11.5'' x 8.6'' are really breathtaking.
See for yourself the birthplace of Jesus at the grotto inside the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem; Site of His Baptism at River Jordan; the Mount of Temptation where Satan tried Him; the Church of all Nations surrounded by Garden of Gethsemane where He prayed fervently and agonizingly before he was arrested; Via Dolorosa - path Jesus followed taking up His cross; Golgotha - the Crucifixion site; the Tomb of Jesus (both the traditional as well as the Garden tomb) and the Mount of Olives from where He will come again. You'll see - the Church of the Annunciation where Mary as a virgin was visited by the Archangel Gabriel; the Franciscan Church at Cana where Jesus turned water into wine; the famous synagogue in Capernaum built in the late third century AD over the remains of a previous synagogue dating to the times of Jesus, the Church of Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes at Tagbha on the shore of Sea of Galilee where Jesus fed five thousand with two loaves and five fishes; the recently excavated Bethsaida- the hometown of Peter, Andrew and Philip; the Church of the Transfiguration on the top of Mount Tabor where Jesus was transfigured; the Church of Dominus Flevit where Jesus wept over Jerusalem; the Church of Holy Sepulchre containing the traditional sites of Golgotha & tomb of Jesus; the tombs of Rachel, David & Mary; and Mount Carmel where Elijah executed 450 prophets of Baal.
There is depicted in the book the room of Last Supper where Jesus broke bread with His disciples the last time before crucifixion, the Sea of Galilee where Jesus walked on water, the Pool of Siloam where Jesus restored the sight of a blind man and the Mount of Beatitudes where He gave the famous Sermon on the Mount. You'll be in awe on seeing - the rock inside the Church of Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes marking the spot where Jesus performed the amazing miracle; the rock of agony inside the Church of all Nations on which Jesus prayed before his arrest when he was comforted by an angel; the stone of anointing inside the Church of Holy Sepulchre on which the crucified body of Christ was laid & washed; and the footprint of Jesus imprinted on a rock in the Chapel of Ascension from where Jesus is believed to have ascended to heaven. You'll also come to view other important sites such as Qumran, Masada, Jericho, the Dead Sea, Ein Karem, Caesarea, Tiberias, Herodion Fortress, Jezreel Valley, Emmaus and Megiddo.
I am sure the book shall prove to be a source of joy, inspiration and blessings to you & your family as much as it has been to me and my family. After seeing the book, let your spirit also rejoice and proclaim like Simeon, the righteous, when he said, "For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people." (Luke 2: 30-31). This book makes up an ideal gift for loved ones in your family, friends and Church. If you have never been to the Land of Jesus & the Prophets, don't let this opportunity go away. Get yourself acquainted with the important holy sites of the Holy Land before the Messiah comes. I pray the Lord grants each of us an opportunity to visit the Holy Land and be an eyewitness to all of His mighty & wonderful works accomplished there. After all, this is the place from where the Messiah shall establish His kingdom and rule all the nations. May you be counted worthy to dwell with the Messiah King - Lord Jesus Christ when He returns again to establish His kingdom from Israel!
