The Heritage of Pilgrimage – Podcast

Dr. Italy, in this 14 minute podcast, discusses the central and constant role pilgrimage has played in the heritage of God’s people in the Holy Land since Abraham.

On this episode of the Sonrise Morning show, Dr. Italy shares about the way pilgrimage has been a central theme and serious obligation for Jews and Christians alike from Abraham through Jesus right down to the present time.
