This week I have been listening to the Gospels while walking.
This is a good exercise as you hear the four books back to back as each one enriches the previous ones. Of course, it is also good exercise if you walk enough in a week to listen to all four of them.
Many images came to mind as I listened. I remembered pictures that I had taken in Bethlehem like this one of the traditional spot of Christ’s birth.
I thought of the Temple in Jerusalem. In many places in the Gospels we find that people are walking up these stairs to the temple.
I thought of this picture when the Pools of Bethesda were mentioned.
I have also visited the Pool of Siloam multiple times and thought of it when events took place there.
Listening to the events that took place in the Garden of Gethsemane came to life as I had been at least near the spot.
As I listened to the events that happened on the night of the arrest of Jesus I thought of these steps that he may have walked up when he went to the house of the High Priest.
As I listened to John 19:13 tonight I pictured this place. Was this the location of Gabbatha or The Stone Pavement?
Of course, many more images came to mind but these are just a few that stuck out as I was writing. 🙂
