Did you know that Paul visited at least 5 different cities in Greece, and two of them received letters that we now know as part of the New Testament. In this episode, we will take a closer look at all 5 cities, what Paul did there, and what you can see there today. As Greece is largely known for it's philosophers - it comes as no surprise that Paul spent a lot of his time discussing concepts like the resurrection with them.

Visiting Israel is not just a look into the past - it is a glimpse into what God is doing today. For the many travelers who visit Israel, they get the opportunity to experience God's Word come to life. They get to walk where Jesus walked, see the lands of Abraham, and reflect on the stories of Moses. But God's Word isn't just stories of the past, they are words of transformation in the present. Steven Rogers visit to Israel transformed his relationship with the Lord. Not only did he end up writing a book about his experience, but he also found himself working through forgiveness for past wrongs.

Did you know that less than 2% of the people living in Israel are Christian? That can make it extremely hard to find a place of worship while you are there on holiday. Not only that - if you google churches in Israel - you will likely find a lot of markers for places of Biblical significance (ie. where Jesus turned water into wine or where Jesus multiplied the fish and loaves to feed over 5,000 people.) So then, how do you find a group of believers to worship with in Israel? In this episode I cover a number of options and share a few resources to help you find a worship service on your next trip.
To access CTN's list of worship services, sign up for our email list. This PDF will be one of many the resources on our online platform launching in late June of this year.
