We live in an age of opportunity unparalleled by any other.
Have you ever considered the unique opportunities God gave us in this age? An example being the current State of Israel allowing archaeologists and scholars to learn more there than ever before? Yet when artifacts are dated as millions or billions of years old, do you feel skeptical? If so, what solution would you come up with to reconcile your interest in archaeological findings? And before spending any time contemplating this, think also about one more thing. What if understanding better the context of various Bible stories could help us make even more appropriate applications for living in today’s world?
By leaving all our conclusions to advanced scholars, we’ll repeat what the majority did during the medieval ages
Yet by organizing desired data into more elaborately thought-out patterns, wouldn’t that encourage research? If research were made more interesting, would more Christians adhere to accuracy and reliability? For example, I asked you how to increase your interest in ancient artifacts. Wouldn’t it help if you could sort by era?
What if artifacts dated millions of years ago were grouped together? So now you can think, “That’s what THEY say about all these artifacts, but I’ll believe this instead.” In contrast, by leaving all our conclusions to advanced scholars, we’ll repeat what the majority did during the medieval ages. This reaction is more shameful considering the ease of our technology today.
We live in an age of opportunity unparalleled by any other. Jesus said, “Everyone to whom much was given, of him, much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more” (Luke 12:48b). This drives my passion.

My Focus in Blogging
My story of forgiveness and healing is quite unrelated to envisioning the Bible world. But since our world is sin and pain infested, I suspect many will want to hear more about my personal experience. I wrote a couple of blogs about this, but mostly I focused on envisioning the Bible world. I learned lots after being in Israel, and now I can share that with you.
Plans for Improved Website:
Now that my documentary links are all moved under the Tour Israel menu heading, I’ll be working to improve the website for visually impaired people and the SEO. This will allow many, many more hits to this website than ever before.
Thanks for your interest.
