Day 1
Arrival
Day 2
Visting the Sea of Galilee and sites mentioned in the New Testament such as Jesus’ ministry base in Capernaum, the site where the “legion” of demons were cast out into the pigs, the Mount of Beatitudes and others.
Day 3
Explore the northern-most regions of Israel, visiting the region of Caesarea Philippi on the slopes of the Golan Heights. Here Jesus asked his disciples “Who do you say that I am?” and King Agrippa II built his palace. At Tel Dan we’ll walk along the Dan stream to the archaeological excavations that have unearthed the famous “House of David inscription” and the temple of the golden calf. If available, we’ll end the day with a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee.
Day 4
Leaving the Sea of Galilee, we’ll travel to Nazareth, Jesus’ boyhood home, to enjoy a panoramic view over the modern city. We continue to Megiddo, one of the strategic cities fortified by King Solomon and to Mt. Carmel, where Elijah and the prophets of Baal asked for divine fire to consume their sacrifices. In the afternoon we’ll visit Caesarea Maritima, the splendid port constructed by Herod the great. Here Cornelius became the first gentile to be baptized into faith in Jesus and Paul gave his defense before Felix and Festus, Roman governors of the Province of Judea. On our way to Tel Aviv we’ll stop by the Israel College of the Bible for an overview of the current programs to equip Jewish and Arab leaders to serve the body of Messiah in Israel.
Day 5
On our way up to Jerusalem we’ll pass through the valley where David fought Goliath and the traditional site of Emmaus, where Jesus appeared to two of his disciples on the day of His resurrection. In the afternoon we’ll enjoy a panoramic view over the Old City of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives and visit the Garden of Gethsemane.
Day 6
The morning will be spent in the Old City. If non-muslim visits are being permitted during Ramadan, we’ll ascend to the “Noble Sanctuary” where the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque currently stand. In New Testament times Jesus would teach daily in the Temple precincts whenever he was in Jerusalem. We’ll also visit the Pools of Bethesda, where Jesus healed the man paralyzed for 38 years and walk up the Via Dolorosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the traditional site where Jesus’ death and resurrection are remembered. In the afternoon we’ll visit Yad Vashem (the Holocaust Museum) and the Israel Museum which houses the Dead Sea Scrolls, as well as 50:1 scale model of Second Temple Period Jerusalem and most of the major archaeological treasures excavated in Israel.
Day 7
Exploring the City of David excavations brings us back to the earliest layers of Jerusalem’s history. We’ll see the remains of towers, walls and palaces, and have an opportunity to walk through Hezekiah’s water tunnel. We’ll visit the Pool of Siloam, where Jesus sent a blind man to wash, and the South Wall Excavations where we can walk on the streets and staircases of Jesus’ Jerusalem . We’ll also have a chance to spend time at the Jewish prayer area of the Western (Wailing) Wall. After lunch we’ll see some of the important historical sites of the Jewish Quarter such as the Cardo and the Broad wall and end the day in the peaceful Garden Tomb.
Day 8
Your last morning will be spent in Bethlehem, visiting the Church of the Nativity and Shepherd’s Fields with a local guide. The afternoon is free for shopping or visiting additional sites of your choice. After dinner (on your own), transfer to the airport, arriving there at least three hours before your flight.
