    Drive north along the King’s Highway, through the land of Edom into the Wadi Rum, the land of the Midianites with its spectacular desert scenery and the background against which the film Lawrence of Arabia was shot. Then along the same route the Israelites took after the king of Edom (Petra) denied them passage during the years of wilderness wandering. We pass the Biblical Mount Seir and make a brief stop at Wadi Musa. Tradition has it that here is found the very rock which Moses struck (Numbers: 20:7-11). Continue on to Petra, where your guided tour begins. We enter Petra on foot, though the Siq, a narrow, winding gorge over 1 kilometer in length. We visit the Great Treasury (Al-Khazneh Farun), the Roman Theatre, the Royal Tombs, as well as hundreds of monuments, tricliniums, and obelisks, all carved from the multi-shaded, rose red sandstone.

This is the place that has been long known from the Byzantine and medieval texts and the Bible as the place of Jesus’ baptism (John 1:28 and 10:40). The site has now been identified on the bank of the Jordan River and was systematically surveyed, excavated, restored, and prepared to receive pilgrims and visitors in early 2000.  Continue driving along the King’s Highway north as we then pass the Crusader Castle of Kerak and drive through Wadi Mujeb to Madaba. There we visit the church with the mosaic floor from the 6th century showing the map of the Holy Land as Christian pilgrims knew it. From there we go to Mt. Nebo and view the Holy Land as Moses viewed it before the Israelite tribes crossed into the Promised Land. Drive to Amman for our overnight stay.

Then we drive north through the Jordan Valley to the crossing point with the Jezreel at Beth Shean (aka Scythopolis). Here we shall climb the tel and view the setting for the death of Saul (I Samuel 28 - II Samuel 1). We then survey the magnificent Roman and Byzantine ruins: theatre, bathhouses, ancient restrooms, market areas, colonnaded streets. We then enjoy a spectacular, scenic drive to Samaria. There we visit Sebastia, believed by some to be the burial place of John the Baptist. Farmers in Sebastia are still uncovering Roman glass as they plow their fields. In Samaria, we also visit a Greek Orthodox church in the town of ancient Shechem (now Nablus). This modern-day church stands over Jacob’s Well. We continue to our hotel in Jerusalem for the remainder of our trip.

    We start the day with an orientation to Jerusalem from the Mt. of Olives. We then follow the traditional Palm Sunday route to the church known as Dominus Flevit (“the Lord weeps”). After viewing the Golden Gate, we walk downhill to Gethsemane, where we take time to meditate on the Gospel text. Then we drive to Mt. Zion: to the grounds of a church called Peter in Gallicantu, which affords the best view of early Jerusalem from the west. (Here, the Assumptionist Fathers propose, was the house where the High Priest Caiaphas interrogated Jesus.) Driving south, we visit Solomon’s Pools, Jerusalem’s main source of water for almost 2000 years. Passing the monastery of Hortus Conclusus (“the sealed garden”) in Artas, we go to Shepherds’ Fields. We conclude the day with a visit to Bethlehem, walking through its alleys and markets to the Church of the Nativity.

    We drive to the Shrine of the Book, which houses the Dead Sea Scrolls.  Next, we visit Yad VaShem, the Holocaust Memorial Museum, dedicated to the six million Jews who lost their lives before and during the World War II.  Also, memorials have been placed to the many Gentiles who helped the Jews during this period, risking their lives to do so.  Next, we have a visit to the model of Jerusalem, representing how the city looked on the eve of the Jewish revolt, 36 years after the Passion of Jesus. This afternoon, a special service and communion will be held at the Garden Tomb.

    Western Wall · Via Dolorosa · Old City· Farewell Dinner · Departure
    Today, we transfer to Dung Gate where just inside, we take the time to examine the ruins near the south side of the Temple complex, which includes steps where we may be certain that Jesus taught, and He and his disciples walked. We then walk up to the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site. We view the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site of Islam, located on the traditional site of the ancient Temple Mount. Just to the north we find the Pools of Bethesda (John 5) and St. Anne’s Church, which has remarkable acoustics, and which has been perfectly preserved from the Crusader period. We then follow the Way of the Cross (Via Dolorosa) back as far as the Holy Sepulcher. From there we walk through the Arab Souks, past the Armenian Quarter and exit the Old City through the Mt Zion Gate to visit the Upper Room and King David’s Tomb on the grounds of Mt. Zion. The rest of the afternoon you’ll have some time to explore the old city on your own “free time”. This evening we’ll enjoy a Middle Eastern farewell dinner before our evening transfer to the Ben Gurion airport for our flight home.
