This week, we continue our new series called Walking With Jesus – Lessons from the Holy Land. After two recent trips to Israel, Pastor Mike wants to share what he learned during his travels. The Holy Land brings the Bible to life as you see the actual places where Jesus walked and taught.
A review of both the Old and New Testaments makes it very clear, when it comes to entering a sacred space where you can meet God, there’s no substitute for a mountaintop. We can meet Jesus on the mountaintop, but we learn to trust Him, and walk with Him in the valley. Today we want to learn about life from the mountaintop.
Throughout Scripture, God uses mountaintops to reveal himself and his plan
At the Mount of Temptation, Jesus revealed His power
- Hebrews 4:14-16 NLT
At the Mount of Beatitudes, Jesus revealed a new way to live
- Matthew 5:1 NLT
- Matthew 5:20 NLT
- Matthew 7:12-13 NLT
At Mt. Arbel, Jesus revealed our new mission
- Matthew 28:8-10 NLT
- Matthew 28:16-17 NLT
- 1 Corinthians 15:1-9 NLT
- Matthew 28:18-20 NLT
