This past spring I heard about the Octagon Project. It is live and virtual reality tours of the Holy Land. You don't need a virtual reality system to view them, and you can view them on any computer, smartphone, or tablet. The link to this website is under the picture above. The picture is of a Bible that merges the Gospels chronologically. You can order this Bible on this website, either print or eBook. I have loved reading it this summer. In fact, it is my second time, and I want to read it again! I love how it tells the story of Jesus in order, so that it's like a biography of His life in one big book.
I have also enjoyed watching some of the videos. I hope to go to Israel someday. But I don't want to go with just any tour group. I could kick myself for not going with my church years ago. This is the armchair way of seeing the sights of Bible times. Also, something bad always seems to be happening there. Which makes me sad, as all these historical sites of such a great historical people, we can't see, or there is so much fighting over who owns what where. I wonder if it will ever be resolved. I think most of the people of that region would like it to be resolved. But it's always those few who have a lot of power but very little ethics to cause so much pain. It's like they have held the Holy Land hostage for destruction.
