Bordered by Syria, the Mediterranean Sea and Israel, Lebanon’s location is significant and inspires its cultural identity and ethnic diversity. The surface area of the country is 10,452 Km2, and the population is over 6 million, which is made up of more than 18 religious groups. Today, we also have a very large number of displaced people seeking refuge in Lebanon. Arabic is the main spoken language, with French and English spoken widely as second languages.
Lebanon has a rich history and a large number of religious touristic places. Once the homeland of Canaanites and Phoenicians, it was ruled by the Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Ottomans, and in most recent history the French and Syrians.
With Beirut as its capital, Lebanon’s weather is moderate with four seasons. It has breathtaking landscapes and numerous natural wonders. We invite you to discover Lebanon as we journey together!
Once covering the Lebanese mountain tops, the cedar tree is the crowning glory of the plant world in Lebanon. With reference to its beauty, impressiveness in scale, and strength, the Scriptures describe the trees as “Choice” and “lofty” (Song of Solomon 5:15; Ezekiel 17:23).
The Gospels reveal to us that Christianity emerged in Phoenicia under the direct influence of Jesus Christ, who attracted the inhabitants of Tyre and Sidon by His words and deeds, resulting in all of Lebanon embracing Christianity long before the advent of the Arabs.
Many other biblical references to Jesus’ life took place in areas of ancient Lebanon, and even the transfiguration that is mentioned in the Gospels of Matthew and Mark is believed to have taken place on Mount Hermon in Lebanon.
