Spreading the Good News in Israel
Whether you’ve been to Jerusalem a handful of times or you come back every year, there is something captivating about that first look at the Jerusalem Old City walls. You’re tired, because you traveled for hours, but just a glimpse of the golden rocks makes you feel alive again.
This magnificent view will greet you as you stand at the door of a one of a kind bookstore, connecting the Old City with the modern city
The Bible promises that out of Jerusalem the Word of the Lord will spread to the ends of the earth. In the same verse, the prophet Isaiah says,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” Isaiah 2:3
No other place in the world gets mentioned so often in both the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures – the Old and New Testament – as much as Jerusalem. Revered equally by Jews and Christians, it is recognized as the city that God chose for His name before all generations.
