(A list made by Martha Ann Kirk from the New RSV Translation as printed in the Oxford Annotated Bible and indexed in the computer program.)

As preparation for the Holy Land Tour, try to read all of Mark's gospel from beginning to end (which can be done in about two hours). This seems to be the gospel closest to the time and life of Jesus. The citations below refer to the main areas that we will be visiting, but since Jerusalem is mentioned over 900 times and Jordan almost 200, only a few favorites are being included.

Qumran is where the Essene Community lived, prayed, and made books which we call the Dead Sea Scrolls. They were found in the 1940's and they include the oldest copy of Isaiah in the world today.
