Have you ever thought about the physical places where the apostles had personal encounters with Jesus in the land of Israel? The “Road to Damascus” has become a common saying that people use to describe moments of great insight or transformation… but have you ever thought about what that dry dirt road was like as the zealous Saul, determined in his mission, was transformed by the Light of Christ and took his God-given identity of Paul?
The road was well-traveled and well-known at the time. But as Christians living on the other side of the globe, can we fully grasp the significance of the ground? This path is a remarkable place we’ve only read about in the Bible. This very path was where the Apostle Paul, who wrote most of the New Testament and who preached about the Jew and Gentile coming together as read in Ephesians 2, was transformed by Jesus Himself.
The encounter Paul had on that path changed the course of history. The land of Israel holds ancient knowledge, miracles, and the birth of the Church as we know it today. Through this episode of Illuminations, you will be able to see the very beach where Jesus met the restored Peter, the very land that transformed Paul, and a present-day story of one man who fell in love with his Jewish Savior and experienced healing miracles.
This exciting episode of Illuminations will take you into the land of Israel, the place your Savior, Jesus, called home, and back in time to Paul’s transformation on the Road to Damascus and Peter’s revelation referred to in Acts 10…
“Now while Peter wondered within himself what this vision which he had seen meant, behold, the men who had been sent from Cornelius had made inquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate. And they called and asked whether Simon, whose surname was Peter, was lodging there. While Peter thought about the vision, the Spirit said to him, ‘Behold, three men are seeking you. Arise therefore, go down and go with them, doubting nothing; for I have sent them.’”—Acts 10:17-20
Just as God gave Peter a vision of what his destiny was in the land and in the world, God speaks to us today about our spiritual heritage in the land of promise, as well as our destiny that is tied to it.
Through this episode of Illuminations you will tour the very seashore area of Joppa (modern-day Jaffa) near where Peter had his vision and set out for his destiny’s journey of bringing the hope of Jesus to the nations.
Illuminations brings history and the land alive so that you can truly experience the Holy Land in real ways and see where Jesus, the apostles walked as the began their ministries.
