Lebanon

Lebanon is a small country in the continent of Asia, on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It has a large population for its small area, almost four million people (4,000,000) live there!

People in Lebanon mostly speak Arabic. Arabic is the language Jesus spoke. Lebanon is next to Israel, the country in which Jesus lived. The Bible tells us that Jesus visited Lebanon, although in those days the area he visited was not called Lebanon, it was called Tyre and Sidon.

Since the days when Jesus walked in Lebanon, people there have continued to follow his teaching. Like the children in this film. Listen to the children as they sing their Mission Together hymn about how we should continue to share the love of Jesus today. Look out for the statue of the man dressed as a monk. He is St. Charbel Makhlouf, the patron saint of the Lebanon.
