    Depart the USA for Tel Aviv, Israel. Meals are served in flight.
     
    Nov. 8 – Arrive Tel Aviv
    Arrive at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv and transfer to your hotel for check-in, dinner and a good night's sleep.
     
    Nov. 9 – Caesarea Maritima, Megiddo, Tree Planting, Nazareth Precipice, Tiberias
    Drive up the Mediterranean Coastline to the ancient ruins of Caesarea Maritima. Wander through the Roman aqueduct and theater at Caesarea, a center of early Christianity. This is where Cornelius became the first Gentile convert to the new covenant (Acts 10) and Paul was imprisoned before being taken to Rome for trial (Acts 23). Travel the ancient caravan route to Tel Megiddo, where 20 different cities lie superimposed upon each other. Enjoy a special Tree Planting in Israel before our final stop in the city of Nazareth. View the city from the vantage point of the Mount of Precipice, where an angry mob attempted to throw Jesus off a cliff (Luke 4). After a full day of sightseeing, arrive in Tiberias for check in to our hotel, dinner and a good night's sleep.
     
    Nov. 10 – Boat Ride, Ancient Boat, Mt. of Beatitudes, Fish Lunch, Capernaum, Jordan River (Baptismal Service)
    Open the day with a beautiful boat ride on the Sea of Galilee. Stop at Nof Ginosar, a kibbutz which houses the remains of a 2,000 year old boat that was found on the shoreline of the lake in the late 1980s. Stand on the peaceful Mount of Beatitudes that gives a visual impact of what Matthew 5-7 could have looked like 2,000 years ago. Explore Capernaum, the center of Jesus' ministry. Visit the synagogue on the site where Jesus taught (Matt. 4). Finally, stop at Yardenit and finish the day at the River Jordan for a time of spiritual blessing when you can remember or renew your baptism.
     
    Nov. 11 – Beit Shean, Jordan Valley, Masada, Dead Sea, Jerusalem
    We leave the Galilee and make our way south along the Jordan - Israel border. Explore the massive excavations at Beit Shean, a city continuously inhabited for over 5,000 years, including when the Philistines hung the bodies of King Saul and his sons from its walls (1 Sam. 31). Travel south through the Jordan River Valley, the route often taken by Jesus and other Galileans as they traveled to and from Jerusalem. Enjoy a visit to historic Masada, the spectacular mountaintop fortress built by Herod that later became the final tragic stronghold of the Jewish rebellion against the Romans. Ride the cable car to the top to explore the fortress and look down upon the remains of the Roman camps and siege ramp below. Stop at the shores of the Dead Sea, the lowest spot on earth, for an opportunity to take a quick dip in the mineral laden waters. Continue to Jerusalem and enjoy a panoramic view of the city before checking into your hotel for dinner & overnight.
     
    Nov. 12 – Model City - Shrine of the Book, Teaching Steps, Caiaphas' House
    Learn about the Jerusalem of Jesus’ day with a look at the First Century Model of the City of Jerusalem, now housed at the Israel Museum. The museum itself contains 10,000 years of archeological artifacts, as well as the Shrine of the Book exhibit that displays the Dead Sea Scroll containing the book of Isaiah. Visit the Davidson Center and the Southern Wall Excavations including the Teaching Steps. Beneath the Church of St. Peter in Gallicantu, you can walk through some of the ancient rooms of the house belonging to Caiaphas the High Priest. Many believe that Jesus was held overnight here before His crucifixion (Luke 22).
     
    Nov. 13 – Mount of Olives, Garden of Gethsemane, Friends of Zion Museum
    Stand on the Mount of Olives as Jesus did and enjoy a remarkable view of the "Golden City" of Jerusalem. Forty days after His resurrection, Jesus ascended into heaven from the Mount of Olives (Acts 1). Enter the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus went to pray after the Last Supper and was arrested (Matt. 26). Enjoy a special event at the Friends of Zion Museum, which celebrates the partnerships of Christians and Jews who supported the dream of a Jewish homeland.
     
    Nov. 14 – Western Wall, Rabbi's Tunnel, Yad Vashem
    This morning we can pray at the iconic Western Wall alongside the Jewish faithful. Experience traveling back in time in the Rabbi's Tunnel, where foundation stones and other stone work survives from the Second Temple! Continue to modern Jerusalem and visit Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust Memorial, with its poignant exhibits honoring the millions of lives lost during the Holocaust. During the course of this day, we plan to show you one of the Bomb Shelters that was constructed and given to the nation of Israel through the Jerusalem Prayer Team Ministry.
     
    Nov. 15 - Old City Tour, Pool of Bethesda, Garden Tomb, Gordon's Calvary
    Walk through the Old City and enjoy the preserved, ancient culture found in the narrow streets as well as the modernized Cardo in the Jewish Quarter. View the Pool of Bethesda (John 5) where Jesus performed the Sabbath miracle. Visit Herod’s Antonia Fortress where Jesus was brought before Pontius Pilate (Luke 23). Take time to reflect on the agony of the cross at Gordon’s Calvary and the glory of the resurrection at the Garden Tomb. After a final dinner in Israel, prepare for departure back to the USA.
     
    Nov. 16 – Arrive USA
    Return home with a transformed faith and memories to last a lifetime!
