The Path from Bethany

One of the joys about visiting the Holy Land is that the memories stay with you, I can remember standing at the end of the footpath in Bethany and wondering how it would feel for me, walking this very path that our Lord trod. Contrary to the expectations of the Pharisees and teachers, Jesus, The…
