I am getting into the book “Jesus: A Pilgrimage” by James Martin. I just read this paragraph from p.13 that I thought was really good.
“Traveling to the Holy Land is like visiting the family home of a good friend. No matter how well you know the person, you’ll understand your friend better afterward. Overall, the pilgrimage made the Gospels more vivid, deepened my understanding of specific stories, and afforded me an enormous amount of fascinating information about the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth. This is why the Holy Land is often called the Fifth Gospel.”
I’m getting excited about “reading” this Fifth Gospel.
