Day 3 - February 29 – Jesus in the Galilee
Start your day at the recent excavations of Magdala, the hometown of Mary Magdalene. At Kibbutz Nof Ginosar, see the ancient boat, a fishing vessel from the time of Jesus, which was raised from the bottom of the Sea of Galilee. Set sail across the Sea of Galilee for a special time of worship on the water. Explore Capernaum, the center of Jesus’ ministry in the Galilee, including the ruins of the synagogue built over the one in which Jesus taught. Visit the ruins of Beit Shean which was continuously inhabited for 5000 years and was one of the Roman cities Jesus passed on his way from Galilee to Jerusalem. Finally, gather at the River Jordan, where you can remember or renew your baptism.
Day 4 - March 1 – Northern Israel
This morning, walk the streets of Chorazim, listed as a “city of woe” by Jesus (Matt. 11). Travel north to Tel Dan, one of ancient Israel’s boundary markers - “From Dan to Beersheba.” Closeby is Caesarea Philippi, where Jesus traveled with His disciples and where nearby Peter made his great confession to Jesus, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Drive on the slope of Mount Hermon to Nimrod’s Fortress. It was in this area that many believe the transfiguration took place. Travel through the Golan Heights and better understand their strategic importance to the security of Israel. Gamla is considered the Masada of the north, a city that succumbed to the Roman army as they made their way to Jerusalem. Also in this area are the mysterious Dolmens, stone monuments presumed to be grave site markers that date back to the time of Abraham.
Day 5 - March 2 – From Sea to Sea
Bid the Galilee farewell and head west to Mount Precipice overlooking Nazareth, the boyhood home of Jesus. Stand on Mount Carmel, where Elijah defeated the prophets of Ba’al. Follow the ancient caravan route to Tel Megiddo, an exciting archeological dig with its layers of twenty different cities built on top of each other, overlooking the Plains of Armageddon. Arrive at the coastal port city Caesarea Maritima, where Cornelius became the first gentile convert and where Paul was imprisoned before being sent to Rome for trial. Continue to Jerusalem and check into your hotel for dinner and overnight.
Day 6 - March 3 – Southern Ruins & Waters
Day 7 - March 4 – Jerusalem & Bethlehem
Start your day atop the Mount of Olives, where you can take in a breathtaking view of the “Golden City” of Jerusalem. It was from this mountain that Jesus ascended to Heaven 40 days after the resurrection. Pray in the Garden of Gethsemane among the olive trees as Jesus did the night He was betrayed with a kiss. On Mount Zion, visit the traditional site of King David’s Tomb & the nearby Upper Room. Also, enter the House of the High Priest Caiaphas, where it is believed Jesus was imprisoned prior to the crucifixion. This afternoon, go to Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, and look out over Shepherds’ Field, where the angels proclaimed “good tidings of great joy!”.
Day 8 - March 5 – Jerusalem
Pray alongside the Jewish faithful at the Western Wall. Take a step back in time in the Rabbi’s Tunnel, where stonework dates from the Second Temple Period. Visit the Southern Wall Excavations, including the Teaching Steps, some of which remain from the time of Christ. At the Temple Institute, learn about the Jewish temple and see replicas of the instruments used for worship and sacrifice. Walk through the City of David excavations, including Hezekiah’s Tunnel, an amazing engineering feat that was dug from both ends to meet in the middle. Peer down Warren’s Shaft, thought to have served as a freshwater drawing point for the city and could have been how Joab entered the city and opened it to David’s forces.

Morning float in the Dead Sea before breakfast and travel to Madaba, the City of Mosaics, to visit the Church of Saint George with its sixth-century, Byzantine, mosaic map showing Jerusalem and other holy sites.

On a clear day, you can see all the way across the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea, to the rooftops of Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
