It is difficult to visualize the steps of Jesus or the stories of the Bible in a land halfway around the world. However, The Rev. Canon Mary June Nestler is an expert in Biblical history and in the land in which the Books of the Bible take place.
The powerful settings of Biblical stories are often called “the Fifth Gospel,” because of the powerful images of the geographic locations that serve as a backdrop to Bible verses. Canon Nestler is the Course Director at St. George’s College in Jerusalem. After a decade as a priest in Utah, she moved to Jerusalem to fulfill a life-long calling to the Holy Land. She joins the Utah Epodcopalians to describe the land and to help promote a diocesan pilgrimage to Israel.
