We will drive north along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and stop at Caesarea Maritima where the Apostle Paul (Acts 24) was imprisoned.

After viewing the panoramic view of the Plain of Jezreel, we continue down the valley to Tel Megiddo touring this fortress once used by King Solomon. Driving through the Jezreel Valley we will stop at Gideon Springs (Judges 7) before heading to Nazareth, Jesus’ boyhood home. While in Nazareth we visit the Grotto of the Annunciation. Continuing down the hills, we drive through Cana (John2), where Jesus performed His 1st miracle and then cross over the Arbel Cliff for a magnificent view of the Sea of Galilee. The day ends when we check into our hotel for the next 3 nights.

We then travel south to visit the impressive ruins in Beit Shean where excavators have discovered 18  successive towns, mosaics, and a 6,000 seat amphitheater. Returning to the Sea of Galilee we stop for a special lunch featuring “St. Peter’s fish.” After lunch we will stop at Magdala to visit the recently discovered ruins which includes an ancient biblical synagogue most likely visited by Jesus. We then head to the north side of the Sea of Galilee to visit the Mount of Beatitudes (Matt 5), The Church of the Primacy (John 21) and Capernaum where we visit the synagogue and the place where early Christians remembered Peter’s house.

(I Kings 12) A short drive then takes us to Caesarea Philippi (Banias), where Peter answered Jesus’ question – “Who do you say that I am?” (Mark 8:21-30). We drive around Mt. Hermon through the Druze villages as we descend our way back to the Sea of Galilee stopping at Gergesa (Mark 5:13). We end our day with a museum visit to see the Jesus Boat and then take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee.

Traveling further south, we arrive at Jericho – the oldest city in the world which lays 820 feet below sea level. There we view the Mt. of Temptation (Luke 4) where Jesus was tempted by the devil. After lunch and a stop for shopping and maybe a camel ride… we continue driving uphill through the deep and picturesque Wadi Kelt gorge (Psalm 23) and end our day in Jerusalem checking into our hotel where we will spend the next 3 nights. 
  • Day 07 Mon . Feb . 07
    AROUND THE CITY OF JERUSALEM/BETHLEHEM
    Our day begins at the Mt. of Olives with the Old City facing towards us. We descend by foot the traditional Palm Sunday road remembering Jesus’ entry and continue down to Gethsemane to visit the garden where Jesus prayed the night of his arrest. There we will have some quite time and devotion. We then visit the church grounds called Peter in Gallicantu (Mark 14:53f) which is built over the house of the High Priest Caiaphas who interrogated Jesus. We exit the church using the very steps Jesus used. Driving south to the Bethlehem region we visit the “shepherd’s fields” and then walk through the alleys and markets to the Church of the Nativity… built over the birthplace of our Lord. While in Bethlehem there will be ample time for shopping before driving through Bethany on our return to our hotel. 
  • Day 08 Tue . Feb . 08
    MASADA / DEAD SEA / JORDAN RIVER
    Today begins with an early drive through the Judean desert to Masada where we board the cable car to the top of this magnificent fortress. Masada was a palace location for Herod and the last stronghold of the Jewish revolt against Rome (66-73 AD). On our return we stop at Ein Gedi where David hid from Saul and then Qumran where the Dead Sea scrolls were discovered. When we stop at the Dead Sea you can float on the water or take a therapeutic Dead Sea mud bath before heading to the Jordan River – near the site where John baptized Jesus. We will allow time for blessings and baptisms in the river before returning to our hotel.

We exit the tunnel walk near the Pools of Bethesda (John 5) and St. Anne’s Church which has remarkable acoustics and is perfectly preserved from the Crusader period. Walking through the city souk (market) we arrive at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher (Golgatha). We will hold a private closing worship service in a local Christian church.
