"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."~from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

APOLOGY to READERS who followed a SEARCH to HERE & didn't find it

On July 18, 2017, I drafted almost 3000 blog posts that I had published since 2008 when I began blogging, rather than edit each one. So if you clicked here from somewhere else and ended up with the post unavailable or error, I am sorry but this is why. It'd be too much work for me to go back and fix them. There's an explanation on 7/19/17 as I'm still learning.

You won’t want to miss

You Version (YV) has this sample plan

Kathie Lee Gifford (FB) and Rabbi Jason Sobel (FB)
(and the tour guide: Ray Vander Laan)
study "tour" dates:
August 6 - September 16, 2018

Faith Gateway (FG) and Study Gateway (SG)


This week's 
(chapter 5 & 6 in the book)
Session 1
(in the study guide)
[the study guide includes 3 days of study after the main one instead of one for every day of the week, which often makes it hard to do. This works better for me.]

Bethlehem is Day 2 in the You Version sample
(the link on the places below is to the YV devo)

Lessons include:
Session One: BethlehemWhere It All Began (chapter 5 & 6) Caesarea, Herodium
Session Two: Nazareth — The Early Years (chapter 7-8 & 10) Judean desert, Cana
Session Three: Capernaum — Ministry Headquarters (chapter 11) FG link
Session Four: Galilee — Ministry Grounds (chapter 14, 9 & 12) 7 Streams, Sea of Gal
Session Five: Mount of Olives — The Triumphal Entry (chapter 18 & 21) Gethsemane
Session Six: Jerusalem — Crucifixion and Resurrection (chapter 22-23) Golgotha

a six week tour
with 6 sessions in the study guide
but the actual *book has 29 chapters of places
in the Holy Land

Kathie Lee has a Quiz on her website
"How well do you REALLY know the Holy Land?"
Beginning the Journey
Where It All Began 
(chapter 5 & 6) Bethlehem, Caesarea, Herodium
{this is actually how the Study Guide is done}

... even if you don't have time right now ...
to join in this study and read/do it
I encourage you to 
please do yourself the blessing
of registering so you can view
the excellent videos of the
Holy Land
Kathie Lee and Rabbi Jason
(sometimes they allow a little more time at the end to view any missed)

"Now you can walk with Kathie Lee on a journey through the spiritual foundations of the Christian faith:
  • THE ROCK (Jesus Christ): Hear directly from Kathie Lee about her life-changing and 
  • ever-deepening connection with Jesus, the Lover of her soul.
  • THE ROAD (Israel): Explore ancient landmarks and historical sites from Israel, 
  • the promised land of God's covenant.
  • THE RABBI (God's Word): Go deeper into the Bible by digging into the original 
  • languages and meanings of the Holy Scriptures
I love Laurie McClure's prayer Faith Gateway's OBS Leader (hope she or they don't mind me 
posting it here): "Father, thank You for this study we're about to embark on and thank You 
for Kathie Lee and Rabbi Jason Sobel. Thank You that Your Word is so rich and deep, far more
than we'll ever be able to understand while on earth. Thank You that greater time we read and
 study it. the more brightly You light our pathand reveal Yourself to us. We want to know You 
and love You increasingly every day. Guide us as we study and pray by Your glorious Holy Spirit.
We love You, Jesus. Amen {and also each session has a closing prayer in the study guide, 
whereas the book gives more details on the background of the place}

* don't miss out on this Kindle special of the book (it may be just through today, August 5th)
