Walking the Jericho Road
There is a treacherous 18-mile long road that connects the cities of Jericho and Jerusalem. Between steep cliffs, rugged terrain, narrow canyons, flash floods and thieves, it’s always been a hazardous path. But it’s also steeped in biblical history. Many of the stories that we know well took place along that road. It’s where Mary and Joseph realized they had lost Jesus, it’s the setting of David’s fleeing from his vengeful son and it’s where Jesus gave sight to blind men. For our Lenten series, we will be taking a literal and metaphorical journey to Jerusalem along this road. As we draw closer to the events of Holy Week, we’ll draw closer to Jerusalem and follow in the footsteps of Jesus towards the cross.
