ApologetiX in the Holy Land

We know from the Bible that great things can happen when a lady named Ruth goes to Bethlehem for the first time. This story is less dramatic than the biblical account, but it's still worth sharing:
I recently visited the Holy Land on a biblical education tour with my church. It was a fantastic trip and I would every Christian to visit if they ever had the opportunity.
When we were in Bethlehem and were discussing as a group all the events and people from Bethlehem, I said I wanted to listen to "Bethlehemian Rhapsody." My friends thought this was funny, so I played the song for them on my phone and they loved it.
Really, though, that song is more suited for the day we visited the Elah Valley where David took on Goliath. And there were many songs I could have chosen to listen to while in Bethlehem: "Hotel Can't Afford Ya," "Manger," "Micah No. 5," "Naomi Gonna Be With Ruth."
Since your songs are based on the Bible, and the Holy Land is where the events of the Bible took place, there really could be an ApologetiX song for every location we visited.
Thanks so much for your music -- what a great way for me to remember the Bible while I was in the land of the Bible.
If I had thought about it ahead of time, I would have put together my Holy Land ApologetiX playlist before traveling. Then I would have been singing Galilee Beach Boys while I was on the Galilee beach.
As it was, I did listen to a lot of ApologetiX songs on the way home.
