The Holy Land

We’re going to Jordan and Israel. Wanna join us? In June, Bethany is visiting Israel and Jordan and she’d like you to join her! She’ll be taking loads of pictures and shooting some video interviews as well. Then, upon her return, we’ll create a 5-day email course curriculum that will take you through The Holy Land with The Park Forum. Sign up today and you’ll receive the course in July when she returns and we edit her material! Click your passport below to sign up! 

Here is her itinerary. Do you have any recommendations? In particular, she’d love recommendations for things to see and do and eat in Amman, Jordan, since most of her down time will be spend there (because her parents are currently living in Amman).

  1. Wow, Bethany, have a wonderful time!!! Wish I could give you suggestions but, unfortunately, I’ve never been and hope
    to get there some day. I will look forward to your pics and stories you bring back and we will remember you while you’re away!

  2. I spent 3 weeks in Israel in January and it was life-changing. While there,one thing I heard over and over from folks who lived there as Bible scholars, missionaries and aid workers was this sentiment, “when I arrived, I was ready to write a book about the place, after a year of living here, I could write an essay. After living in the Holy Land for years – I know less than when I arrived!”
    Part of me is amused that you are going to write a study on the Holy Land immediately upon returning from your trip, and the other part is eager to see what your reflections are!
    Have a great trip!

    • Your insight made me smile! No, in no way at all am I going to pretend even to write a study on the Holy Land! I’m mainly looking for a way to serve / love others through the trip – perhaps others who would never look at the Holy Land in general. So, yes, we will all see what comes out of this! I’m eager, too! Blessings to you, too, Linda!

  4. Hello¸

    I am a messenger of God in accordance with the holy Quranic verse 28:59. It is my bounden duties to protect all the communities in the world.

    Now¸ a film under the name and style of innocence of Muslim has been published by Google and Youtube against prophet mohamed and Muslims which is creating trouble between Islam and Christians brother hoods in he world which is against the holy Quranic verses 5:82¸ 20:129 and 130 and as such no Muslim can harm Christians.

    The Christians and Jewish can go through the Quranic verse 7:157 on the basis of holy Torah and Bible wherein prophet Mohamed has been mentioned as prophet¸ after Jesus¸ but the same fact was not followed by the two communities of Jewish and Christians in the world and accordingly Jewish and Christians are divided into various group till a Day of Resurrection according to the Quranic verses 5:13 and 14.

    God has also created palestine to create trouble to jewish till a Day of resurrection in accordance with Quranic verses 7:163 and 167.

    We conducted a survey and research that why Christians and Muslims are not
    cooperating with each other in the world? We found the following
    answers.

    1. Christians are well educated and research scholars to research each
    and every issue brought to them, but unfortunately Satan occupying not
    to apply their mind to analyse that how Jesus was killed and crucified
    when God has given him five favours and one out of it is he brought
    forth dead.

    2. Jews are not accepting our prophet Jesus that they tried to kill
    Jesus, but Christians are following Jews and depend upon their advice.

    3. Christians fail to realise Matthew 14:23 and Quranic verse 5:14 and
    9:31 that and when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a
    mountain apart to pray. If Jesus is God or a part of God then why did
    he pray?

    4. Christians are not interpreting Matthew 27:11-14 to mean that Jesus
    wanted to die on the cross for the redemption of mankind and for the
    forgiveness of their sins. If so, then why did he ask to turn away
    that cup from him? Why did hr cry out while on the cross?

    5. Muslims are accepting Jesus as prophet and his mother Mary, but
    Jews disbelief and uttering against Mary, a grave false charge (that
    she had committed illegal sexual intercourse).

    6. Muslims believe that Jesus was not killed and crucified by the Jews
    as revealed in the holy Quran verse 4:157 and 158.

    7. Most of Muslims in the world are not educated and innocent. Some
    leaders and organisations are misleading young Muslims to fight with
    other communities as Jihad which is not recognised in the Quranic
    verses 5:32, 22:40, 45:14 and they are termed as perverts in
    accordance with Quranic verse 2:99.

    8.Christians failed to interpret Quranic verse 4:157
    and158,5:14,5:82,7:158,
    57:27 and 28 and 61:6 read with John 14:15-16,15:26-27,16:5-8,read
    with Matthew 10:16.

    I am a follower of Christian and islam according to quranic verse 57:28.God invite all my Christians brotherhood in the world to follow Christian and islam.Kindly read Quranic verse 57:27and 28 which are available in Quranic English Translation website.All are requested to follow me in the interest of world peace solutions and unity in the world among all of you as iam a messenger of God in according to quranic verse 28:59.

    I am a messenger of God to notice the above said facts to United States of America and others in the world in accordance with the Quranic verse 4:83 that I am fearing that world is not peaceful in these hard days.

    In the circumstance stated above, I prayed for peace and unity in the world and requesting the USA may be asked all the researchers in the world to research the Bible verses and Quranic verses stated above in the light of the messages posted in the website http://www.goldenduas.comin the interest of public peace and unity among all communities in the world.

    I request early solutions

    Your Success,

    U. Ibrahim Ali

  5. I’ve been to Israel two times. The last trip was in 2005 to participate in the Tell es-Safi/Gath Archaeological Project. I come to NYC frequently and would love to meet Bethany Jenkins.

  6. This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a
    reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really
    loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
