The term “Levant” historically refers to a geographical region in the Eastern Mediterranean. The word itself originates from the French word “lever,” which means “to rise,” signifying the direction where the sun rises in the east. It broadly encompasses areas in the Eastern Mediterranean, including countries such as Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Cyprus, and parts of Turkey and Egypt. The term has been used historically to denote this specific region with its cultural, historical, and geographical significance.
Though the history and origin of this word is long forgotten, we believe it is a powerful symbol and foreshadowing of all the Lord desires to do through Levant Ministries.
“Just as the sun rises daily and illuminates the region, so too will the Son rise and radiate His life-giving Light over the Levant!”
