The Bible story and its message of salvation are connected to a real place and in a real time in history. Its reliability and credibility is therefore dependent upon evidence that corroborates its claims. New Testament scholar C.H. Dodd said, "Some religions can be indifferent to historical fact, and move entirely upon the plane of timeless truth. Christianity cannot." (History of the Gospel). The Bible Land Passages project is dedicated to showcasing those historical facts through powerful video segments that teach faith lessons from the Bible lands and produce quality photography to be utilized in teaching. Choose an option below to get started. Experience the full-length journey in our Passages Program. Short Devotional Reflections by our staff are available for many of the areas we visit. Need high-quality images for a Bible class or sermon? Our Photos section is a great place to start!
BLP Pathways | Masada: Snake Path
Walk in the footsteps of David, the sweet singer of Israel, as he made his journey through the tribal territory of Judah in his flight from King Saul. In this the first of the Pathways video series, viewers are introduced to the harsh and barren climate of the Judean wilderness which surrounded the historic desert escarpment known today as Masada. Rising some 1,300 feet above the Dead Sea, this natural island of defense is surrounded on all sides by rugged and deep canyon ravines approached only by an ancient trail known as the snake path. Follow along with Bible Land Passage team members as they retrace the steps of this historic pathway where David likely traveled, and where Jewish Zealots and their families climbed in their journey to the mountain fortress built by King Herod.
