In this episode, host Jack Beck demonstrates how God uses spiritual wilderness in our lives as seasons for growth.
ABOUT THIS SERIES:
“Wilderness is not just an ecosystem—it’s a season of life.” — Jack Beck
Some of the Bible’s most familiar and powerful stories took place in the wilderness. The Israelites spent forty years in the wilderness. Jesus fasted in the wilderness for forty days, before He was tempted by Satan. Even the beloved “Shepherd Psalm,” Psalm 23, may have been inspired by the wilderness. In fact, the wilderness is mentioned more than three hundred times in Scripture.
Now, host Jack Beck (“The Holy Land: Connecting The Land With It’s Stories”) highlights the easily-overlooked truths of the wilderness—both the harsh, threatening ecosystem in which Bible people sometimes found themselves and the difficult seasons of life in which we often operate. By showing what the wilderness meant to people in Bible times, Jack also provides guidance for our own experience in barren times and places.
In “Land without Borders”, Jack Beck will lead you on a journey of discovery, using the Bible’s physical landscape to heighten your spiritual experience.
