StoryFew places in the Holy Land are as famed and celebrated as the Sea of Galilee. Ancient Jewish historian Josephus wrote that it was “wonderful in its characteristics and in its beauty. Thanks to the rich soil there is not a plant that does not flourish there, and the inhabitants grow everything: the air is so temperate that it suits the most diverse species.” Much of the ministry of Jesus took place on its shores. The gospels of Mark (1:14–20), Matthew (4:18–22), and Luke (5:1–11) describe how Jesus recruited four of his apostles from the fishermen working on the Lake. One of Jesus' famous teaching episodes, the Sermon on the Mount, is supposed to have been given on a hill overlooking the lake, and countless of his miracles are told to have occurred here, including his walking on water, calming the storm, the disciples and the boatload of fish, and his feeding of five thousand people. This unique, limited edition painting show the calm, picaresque lake, whose calm waters evoke not just an inner sense of peace, but are also a constant reminder of the work and legacy of Jesus Christ.
StoryRevelation 16:14-16: “’Assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty … And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” Megiddo is full of archaeological and biblical importance and legacy. Strategically perched above the most important land route in the ancient Near East, the city dominated international traffic for over 6,000 years, from around 7,000 B.C.E. to biblical times. It is a place of rich history, impressed by whole civilizations that came and went. However, the place is more familiar under its Greek name, Armageddon. It is mentioned in the book of Revelations as the future battlefield of end times, where the armies of God will battle against the army of Satan and triumph. This unique limited-edition painting shows this significant, yet quiet, green plain, with Mt. Carmel, Mt. Gilboa and others in the background.
StoryThe Yardenit Baptismal site lies on the banks of the Jordan river. This is the site where, according to tradition, Jesus was first baptized by John. As in Mark 1:10, upon lifting his head back up from the water, he saw the heavens open, and the Holy Spirit came down gently to bless him. This unique, limited-edition painting shows the peaceful spot, the green trees casting their gentle shadows, and the still waters that hold such spiritual treasures.
StoryThe Dead Sea is a salt lake at the edge of the Jordan river. It is ten times as salt as the ocean – so salty, in fact, that nothing lives or grows in it. It is the lowest place on earth – geographically, that is, since the Dead Sea is rich in historical and spiritual significance. It is said to had been a lush and blossoming place, just like the Garden of Eden, until God punished the nearby cities of Sodom and Gomorra for their sins. After that destruction, the place became barren and desolate, a testament to God’s power. Later, people have later dwelt in the surrounding caves, as recorded extensively at the time of King David, who is said to have hidden from Saul at nearby Ein Gedi. This unique, limited-edition painting depicts this remarkable lake, the Dead Sea, which Scripture foretells will come to life again when Jesus returns to rule the earth.
StoryLuke 22:44: “And being in agony he was prying very fervently, and his sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.” The garden of Gethsemane, near the foot of the Mount of Olives, is named in the New Testament as the place where Jesus and his disciples went to pray the night before he was crucified. The garden lies close to the natural route from the Temple to the summit of the Mount of Olives and the ridge leading to Bethany. It was here that Jesus prayed in agony, pleading with God “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass me by. Nevertheless, let it be as you, not I, would have it.” It was here that he visited by angel to console him in his agony, so great that “his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down upon the ground.” This unique limited-edition painting shows the tranquil, peaceful garden where Jesus spent his last night before his crucifixion in prayer and contemplation.
StoryThe baptism of Jesus was his spiritual rebirth. For Christians, his baptismal site on the banks of the Jordan is considered third in importance, after the Church of Nativity and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. It was here, on this spot, that Jesus publicly accepted his ministry. From then on, he toured the Holy Land, performed miracles, and taught the gospel his disciples. Christianity, in a way, finds its modest origins here, on this very spot. This unique, limited-edition painting shows the site, rich in spiritual and historical heritage, a beautiful reminder to the humble yet powerful origins of the faith.
StoryAt the western edge of the Old City, near the Jaffa Gate, the Tower of David stands above the walls. It is within walking distance of the Christian Quarter and Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where tradition holds Jesus was buried. More than 2,000 years of history are recorded in this one building. It was the site of King Herod’s palace, described as having been enormous, adorned with gold and silver, and using running water. Recent discoveries by Israeli archeologist hint that it was here that Pontius Pilate, the luxury-loving Roman prefect, was likely to have tried and sentenced Jesus from here. This unique, limited-edition painting shows the Tower at the edge of the Old City, allowing the viewer to contemplate its centuries of rich history.
StoryThe Mount of Olives is frequently mentioned in the New Testament as part of the route from Jerusalem to Bethany. This was the place where Jesus stood as he wept over Jerusalem. He is said to have spent time on the mount, teaching and prophesying to his disciples, returning there after each day to rest. At the foot of the mount lies the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus sang, prayed and stayed with his disciples the night before his crucifixion. After his resurrection, Jesus ascended from the top of this mount in to heaven. This unique, limited-edition painting shows this famed mountain, which was so central in the life of Jesus and his followers.
StoryJohn 10:22-23: “At that time the feast of the Dedication took place at Jerusalem, it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple in portico of Solomon.” Jerusalem’s Old City is, by far, one of the most colorful, longed-for, and holy places in the world. Its streets have been trodden by Israelites, Jews, Romans, Christians, Crusaders, Caliphs, and Muslims. It has been toured and rejoiced by pilgrims and men of science alike. Residing at the Western edge of the Judean Desert, Jerusalem is hardly known for its winters. However, due to its special location atop ancient hills, some winters become so cold as to snow a white blanket over the city. With its normal hustle and bustle muted by the snow, the city’s spiritual power resonates ever more loudly. This unique, limited-edition painting allows you to enjoy a uncommon, though perhaps more powerful, view of Jerusalem.
StoryThe Jordan River is a 251-kilometre (156 mi)-long river in the Middle East that flows roughly north to south through the Sea of Galilee and on to the Dead Sea. Holy land Views gives you a unique opportunity to have one of a kind limited edition oil paintings of the Jordan river.
StoryMatthew 16:15: When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples: ““But what about you? … Who do you say I am?”?” Caesarea Philippi, as mentioned in this passage, was called Paneas in ancient times. It borrows its name from the mountain of Panium, or Hermon as it is called today. Its river is one of the three main streams that flow in to the Jordan River. The Banias carries immense historical and spiritual importance going back to Hellenistic times, when it was a place of worship for Pan, the god of nature and the wild. In biblical times, it was near its cool waters that Peter made its famed confession proclaiming Jesus as the true messiah, and where Jesus publicly accepted his role as Christ and Son of God. This unique, limited-edition painting depicts the rich, calm surroundings where such great moments took place.
