As we enter the Christmas season, we at Passages are all eager to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the point in human history where God descended into humanity to bring light and life to a broken world.

Of all the places heaven could have touched earth, God chose the land of Israel. Here, the redemption narrative unfolded and eventually extended to all nations, and to us.

When we travel to Israel, we encounter the redemption narrative tangibly. This Christmas season, we’re launching our Passages Advent Calendar to help you think about and celebrate the birth of Jesus and the stories that foreshadowed it—all within the context of Israel.

Each day, we will provide a brief overview of the historical and biblical significance of a location in Israel, along with a devotional prompt that will help you connect that location with the life of Jesus in scripture.
