Have you ever wanted to visit the Holy Land and follow in the footsteps of Jesus? As we get ready for Holy Week and Easter, the ELCA is journeying through the Holy Land in brief 6-minute videos, visiting Nazareth, the Jordan River, the Via Delarosa, and more. The videos are led by a Palestinian Christian who grew up along the Sea of Galilee, and he will show you not just all the beautiful landscapes of Israel and Palestine, but the way of following Jesus in our lives and ministry.

Curious? Check out the trailer!

This series is created by Sumud (and Arabic word meaning "steadfastness"). Sumud is the new name for the ELCA Peace Not Walls campaign, an advocacy group working for Justice in Palestine and Israel.
