Return of the Pilgrims

Roger Green, biblical studies, writes:
"On May 25th, 37 pilgrims, including many from the Gordon community, accompanied Karen and me for Gordon College’s Fifteenth Holy Land Pilgrimage (click on photo to enlarge). We returned home June 6 with fond memories of the pilgrimage. The weather was beautiful and those who traveled on the trip supported each other in wonderful ways. This was yet again an opportunity for Christians to visualize the story of redemption. We traveled as far north as Dan and as far south as Masada. We walked the shores of the Sea of Galilee and the way of the Cross of our Lord in the city of Jerusalem. We were witnesses to the places where Jesus ministered as well as the place of his death and resurrection. Both Testaments came alive, and those who went on this pilgrimage realized the promise that they will never read the Bible the same way again after experiencing the Holy Land during these thirteen days."
