Bible Lands Pictures

Jerome, translator of the Latin Vulgate Bible, called a visit to the Holy Land “the Fifth Gospel.” You read it as walk through the land. My first visit to the land of Israel was in the summer of 1973. The experience changed my life forever by introducing me to the geography, history, archaeology and culture of the Land of the Bible. My studies and travels in Israel, Egypt, Greece, Turkey and Italy have provided the  opportunity to take pictures which I incorporate into my Bible lectures and sermons. Looking at pictures of the Bible Lands is the next best thing to being there. You can find great images of sites in Israel at and
