Here’s why Syria is part of the Holy Land

Giacomo Pizzi11 January 2022

Did you know that Syria,as well as Lebanon,are considered part of that area of the Middle East known as the Holy Land?

In fact, some of the most important events recounted in the Bible, do not take place only in the most famous places such as Jerusalem and Bethlehem or Nazareth, but also in neighboring regions including present-day Syria and Lebanon.

In Syria and Lebanon, the first Christian communities have developed,and here began the journeys and preaching of St. Paul, who converted to Christianity on his way to Damascus to persecute the Christians who were there. To follow together the steps of the life of the Apostle to the Gentiles in Syria, we have prepared this digital booklet that traces the stages of his journey.
