ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the hesitancy on the part of Christians, especially the Catholics, to appreciate the centrality of the Land of Israel. The Land of Israel is scarcely mentioned in the New Testament and it is not inextricably connected to Christian theology. The Land has no central place in the Christian effort to live as Christ, and Christians have no liturgical yearning for the Land, though the region has a historical or even a sacramental aspect as the place where Jesus lived and died.
