Pilgrim’s Progress


1 Peter 2:11 – Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul.

Matthew 7:13 – Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

An epic tale of a pilgrim and his burden. Journey with Christian as he travels from the city of Destruction to the Celestial City.
Based on one of the best-selling books of all time, The Pilgrim’s Progress is the one story that can give our children the courage to stay on the straight path in a culture that often stands against them. 

The Pilgrim’s Progress from This World, to That Which Is to Come is a 1678 Christian allegory written by John Bunyan. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious, theological fiction in English literature.
As a young man, John Bunyan began sharing his faith with others and illegally preaching outside the official government church in England. Consequently, John went to jail. While in jail, he began to write a story about a Christian pilgrim in The Pilgrim’s Progress who struggles, but because of God’s grace remains on the narrow path to heaven. The book went on to become one of the bestselling books of all time and has been translated into 200+ languages. https://youtu.be/U4vP-ns4pIw

“To be a Pilgrim” (also commonly known as “He would Valiant be” is the only hymn John Bunyan is credited with writing but is indelibly associated with him. It first appeared in Part 2 of Pilgrim’s Progress, written in 1684 while he was serving a twelve-year sentence in Bedford Gaol on a charge of preaching without a licence. The hymn recalls the words of Hebrews 11:13: “…and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”

Construction workers stumbled upon some long and wide stairs a few dozen meters from where the Shiloah – the ancient pool Jewish pilgrims would dip in before beginning the religious ascent to the Temple, until its destruction in 70 CE – was believed to have once stood. The steps were just like the ones that lead to the Hulda Gates, a set of now blocked entrances along the Temple Mount’s Southern Wall.
Discovery of the Shiloah Pool led to another monumental find – the central water drainage channel that had served ancient Jerusalem. This channel is the tunnel that visitors to the City of David – known as Ir David – get to walk through today, starting at the bottom of the Shiloah and emerging about 45 minutes later next to the Western Wall.
The ancient street is referred to as “Pilgrimage Road,” since archeologists are convinced that this is the path millions of Jews took three times a year when performing the commandment of aliyah l’regel – going up to the holy city of Jerusalem to bring sacrifices to God during Judaism’s three key holidays, Passover, Shavuot and Sukkot.
The Pilgrimage Road goes all the way from the Shiloah Pool to the area adjacent to the Western Wall known as Robinson’s Arch, where today you can still see remnants of the ancient stairway that led into the Jewish Temple.

Outside Jerusalem’s Old City (near Damascus Gate), a once-in-a-lifetime find of ancient Greek inscription. The intact 1,500-year-old mosaic was uncovered in the flooring of what is thought to have been a pilgrim hostel (temporary dwelling) during the reign of the Byzantine emperor Justinian. Also known as Justinian the Great, the monarch was considered the “last Roman emperor” for his desire to revive the vast strength and greatness of the Roman empire. The inscription was found on a road leading to the Damascus Gate, the main northern entrance to Jerusalem in the period surrounding the era of the charismatic emperor Justinian.

* Symbolizing abundance, 153 can represent an overflow blessing from God.

The Bible states the disciples marveled at the fact that their net held together even though it contained so many large fish!
Additionally, the catching of 153 fish (John 21:11) happened only after Christ became involved in the work. This is a reminder that without Christ the disciples’ (and any believer’s) attempts to accomplish something great on their own will fail, but that with Jesus all things are possible (John 15:5).

Keep walking the narrow path!
