Product Description

If you found yourself walking through ancient Israel with Jesus by your side, what might prompt a conversation?

An oasis in the distance. A pasture where sheep quietly graze. A valley where armies once clashed.

Holy Land expert John Beck understands how culture and geography play a big part in interpreting the Scriptures. In Along the Road, Beck uses vibrant details of ancient society and the characteristics of the countryside to relate biblical lessons that we might otherwise miss. This book illustrates the fascinating connections between people, places, and events of the Old Testament and the locales and experiences of the life of Jesus.

Join John Beck on this journey and discover how these easily overlooked geographic and cultural details of biblical history can enhance your understanding of God’s Word.

    "Along the Road" looks at different events in the Bible that happened in the same city or area. The author looked at the relationship between the different events and how people at the later event would have thought back to what happened there before. For example, Jesus raised a young man from the dead close to a city where a prophet also raised a young man from the dead, and the people called Jesus a prophet after the miracle.

    The author looked at five types of geographic connections: fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies, tests where humans had failed but Jesus succeeded, places where Jesus confronted pagan strongholds, places that helped reveal Jesus as the Son of God, and how the location connected into the message that Jesus was preaching. The author summarized the events that happened at each place, the connections between them, what the landscape looked like, and where it was located. The book contains maps showing where these events occurred.

    Each chapter takes about 5 to 10 minutes to read, so it would work well as a devotional. Overall, I highly recommend this interesting and insightful book.

    I received an ebook review copy from the publisher through Netgalley.
