View Mount Carmel and recall Elijah’s dramatic victory over the prophets of Baal (I Kings 18). Follow an ancient caravan route through the Jezreel Valley to Tel Megiddo, an exciting archaeological dig with layers of twenty different cities, all built on top of each other. Conclude your day in Nazareth, Jesus’ boyhood home (Matt. 2:23).
Day 4 - March 11 - Sea of Galilee
Pass through the Valley of the Doves and see Mount Arbel (Isaiah9:2) on your way towards the Sea of Galilee. This was a major pathway in the time of Christ. He and his disciples passed through this valley as they walked through the Galilee. In Magdala, once home to Mary Magdalene (Luke 8:1-3), visit a recently discovered first‐century synagogue. Enjoy your St. Peter’s Fish lunch together before crossing the waters of the Sea of Galilee on a very special boat ride, complete with an onboard worship service. At Kibbutz Nof Ginosar, see the 2,000-year-old “Ancient Boat,” a rare example of the kind of boat in which Jesus might have sailed. On the Mount of Beatitudes, contemplate the text of the Sermon on the Mount that Jesus preached there (Matt. 5‐7). Explore the Church of the Fish and the Loaves at Tabgha, traditional site of the feeding of the 5,000 (Luke 9:10‐17).
Day 5 - March 12 - Tel Dan, Caesarea Philippi, Golan Heights, Capernaum, Tabgha, Church of the Primacy of St. Peter
At the ruins of Tel Dan, see the altar built by King Jeroboam I (IKings 12:25‐30) and learn about where the “House of David” fragment from the First Temple Period was discovered. Continue on to Caesarea Philippi, where Peter told the Lord, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God!” (Matt.16: 16). A scenic drive along the Golan Heights will give you some beautiful views of Syria and Jordan, as well as, Israel. A drive to Capernaum, the center of the ministry of Jesus in the Galilee features the synagogue built on the site where Jesus taught (Matt. 4:13,23). Just down from Capernaum is Tabgha, the site of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes. From there you will go to the shores of the Sea of Galilee to an area called The Church of the Primacy of St. Peter. Many believe it was at this site where Jesus designated Peter to be the earthly head of the church.
Day 6 - March 13 - Jericho, Qumran, Masada & the Dead Sea, Baptism at Qasr el Yahud Baptism Site near the Dead Sea, Mt. Scopus
Head to Jericho to visit the ruins of the ancient city Joshua conquered (Josh. 6:20). Off in the distance, you can see the traditional site of the Temptation of Jesus (Matt. 4:1). Stop in Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in 1947 by a Bedouin shepherd. Enjoy a visit to 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. On the way to Jerusalem, 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. After going into the Dead Sea you will have an opportunity to renew your baptism vows at Qasr el Yahud Baptism Site near the Dead Sea. Many believe this site is close to where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. Your day ends with an amazing overview of Jerusalem and the Old City from Mt. Scopus.
Day 7 - March 14 - Bethlehem, Yad Vashem & Israel Museum
In Bethlehem, gaze out over Shepherds’ Field and visit the cave revered as Jesus’ birthplace (Luke 2:1‐20). Visit the Church of the Nativity, built above the cave and considered the world’s oldest functioning church (Luke 2). In Jerusalem, visit Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust Memorial, with its poignant exhibits honoring the lives lost during the Holocaust. Explore the Israel Museum and its First Century Model of the City of Jerusalem. Another highlight is the museum’s Shrine of the Book exhibit showcasing the Dead Sea Scroll book of Isaiah.
Day 8 - March 15 - Mount of Olives , Palm Sunday Road, Garden of Gethsemane, Mount Zion, House of Caiaphas , Upper Room, King David’s Tomb, Western Wall, Davidson Center - Southern Wall Steps
Stand on the Mount of Olives for a remarkable view of Jerusalem (the Golden City); Jesus stood here before ascending into heaven forty days after His resurrection (Acts 1:9‐12). In the Kidron Valley across from the walls of Jerusalem, pray as Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane (Matt. 26:36). Continue to Mount Zion to visit the House of the High Priest Caiaphas, where Jesus was questioned the night of His betrayal (Matt. 26:57). Recall the events of the Last Supper as you visit the traditional location of the Upper Room (Mark 14:12‐26). Spend time in prayer at the Western Wall (the only remnant of the Second Temple of Jerusalem) and sit on the Teaching Steps where Jesus taught.
Day 9 - March 16 - Jerusalem
Walk the Temple Mount (conditions permitting), once the site of theTemple of Solomon (II Chronicles 3) and home to the Dome of the Rock. See where Jesus healed on the Sabbath at the Pool of Bethesda (John5: 1‐18), Walk the Via Dolorosa (“the Way of the Cross”) to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (John 19), built over the site believed by many to be the site of the crucifixion and burial of Jesus. At Gordon’s Calvary and the Garden Tomb, share communion together and experience the reality of the Resurrection (John 20).
