In 2015 the Australian worship group Hillsong United recorded Empires. It was a fresh, new album inspired by the Beatitudes, inspired by the most famous sermon ever given.
So where better to record a live album of tracks from Empires than the very places where Jesus walked and talked and changed lives? Travelling across the Holy Land, United visit the iconic places from the life of Jesus. Whether it's by the Dead Sea, down the Via Dolorosa, or on a boat on the Sea of Galilee, they infuse each of the CD's 12 songs with essence of the land, and it's richly profound history.
In trading their stages and studios for the scorching hot outdoors, Hillsong United have created a truly unique album, with each song embracing the essence and significance of its setting.
Plus, with the album's accompanying DVD, you too get to see the spectacular sights of the Empty Tomb, The Mount of Beatitudes, Galilee, and others as each location is embraced in a visually arresting, and musically stirring, performance as well as three bonus tracks including their much-loved Oceans [Where Feet May Fall].
Live from the Holy Land, amidst the sand and dust and desert, is the most inspired of Hillsong United's releases to-date as the group go through profound experiences of both Dirt and Grace.
