Threshold Bible Study: Pilgrimage in the Footsteps of Jesus

Threshold Bible Study: Pilgrimage in the Footsteps of Jesus

Because Jesus entered our world in the human condition, our faith has deep roots in the physical places where he was born, walked and talked, laughed and wept, where he suffered, died, and rose again. Though a bodily pilgrimage to the Holy Land may not be possible for many, this imaginative pilgrimage unites these hallowed places with the sacred texts associated with the life of Jesus. This geography of salvation can fill out the written gospels with tangible reality. Here we can imagine Jesus with his disciples along the lake, teaching on the mountainside, praying in the garden, and dying on the cross.
