Featured photo: This is the Monastery of Saint Catherine—the oldest in the world. This is where the world’s most ancient manuscripts of the Bible were preserved for centuries. It is … as one may expect … an Orthodox monastery and Church.
Where does a pilgrim go, seeking the place where God encounters Humanity?
There is a sacred place where it begins… and continues: this place is Mount Sinai, in Egypt. This where God appeared to Moses and said:
“I AM whom I AM” (Exodus 3:14)
God simply IS. Can we “prove” (or “disprove”) God’s existence? As the Apostle Paul wrote:
“Ever since the creation of the world his invisible nature, namely, his eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made.” (Romans 1:20)
Likewise, the Apostles simply proclaimed that Jesus Christ is the Lord, the Son of God. It is a spiritual encounter, not a theory.
Mount Sinai is still a spiritual place: the oldest Christian monastery is there; famous among other things for having preserved the oldest manuscripts of the Bible such as Codex Sinaiticus.
And yes, it is part of the world’s oldest and second largest Christian body: The Orthodox Church.
