 Introduction to  Journal

 "A Series" :  Patmos and the 7 Churches of Revelation

The title Passion for Jesus was conceived while we were traveling among the Biblical sites in Turkey. The time was October 2001. As we were on the road, we realize that Turkey is a fairly large country (today ranking #36 in the whole world, with over 780,000 sq km), and Turkey was only one of the many places where the Apostle Paul visited. This fact is far more astonishing especially if you take into consideration that, in ancient times, the early apostles were traveling mostly on foot and with no doubt they would be on a shoe-string budget.

We were pondering on this one question: what prompted Paul and so many disciples to embark on missionary journeys? Then it dawned on us, it is the love of God that was constraining them (2 Cor 5:14). They were not trying to make a name for themselves, not intending as such to leave their mark upon human history, nor for financial profit. They were not out to experience the world, nor to accumulate traveling points. They were propelled by the Passion for Jesus, the love to share the Gospel with people in the foreign lands.

This title meant much to us. It is an answer of our prayers, as well as a goal of life. In combination with the sub-title of In the footsteps of the First Century Apostles, this series is a recount of the actual footsteps of the evangelists, which were the consequences of the same Passion for Jesus, bursting into action, leaving a trail of blessing along the ancient highways and byways.

Passion for Jesus is a trip of faith, exploring the meager remains of the physical footsteps of the apostles are few, interfered by thousands of miles of space, 2000 years of time and history, but much more importantly, this is a seeking of the spiritual paths of many disciples of Jesus, who in following the steps of their Master, left their homeland and became apostles, wanderers upon the face of the world, with no place called home, no soft bed nor pillow.

Passion for Jesus is an attempt to re-visit the Bible with stories, photos, sketches, maps and multi-media presentation of our journey. It demands huge amount of work, study and mediation to gather these resources onto a single site. We will continue to add new resources here as we proceed on this journey of faith.
