ITINERARY

Depart USA for Tel Aviv, Israel.

We arrive in Tel Aviv and make our way to Passport Control. We collect our luggage and then we board our motor‐ coach for a short drive to our hotel in Tel Aviv in time for our welcome dinner and overnight in Tel Aviv.

Dinner

Today we depart for the Galilee enjoying stops at the extensive ruins of Caesarea, an ancient port city, built by King Herod and later becoming the seat of government of the Roman governors, and where Peter proclaimed the Good News to the Roman centurion (Acts 9 & 25). We then journey to Mt. Carmel where Elijah prayed, and God defeated 450 prophets of Baal with fire from heaven (1Kings 18). We will arrive in Tiberias for dinner and overnight on the Sea of Galilee.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, we start the day with a visit to Mount Arbel. We then continue to Banias River to the ancient site of Caesarea Philippi, where Jesus asked His disciples “who do men say that I am?” (Mark 8: 27-30). We drive along the Sea of Galilee to Capernaum (Mark 1: 31-38), the base of Jesus’ early ministry, the home of Peter, and the site of many healings. Later we board a wooden “Jesus Boat”, a fishing boat of the kind used by the disciples of Jesus, for our ride on the Sea of Galilee. Overnight in Tiberias.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, we head south toward Jerusalem, we will stop at the Dead Sea for lunch and swim. Next, we continue to Jerusalem for dinner and overnight.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, we proceed to the beautiful Mt. of Olives to behold the breathtaking panorama of the Holy City. Our pilgrimage today will proceed down the Old Palm Sunday Road (Mark 11:1-11) to the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus spent His last hours among the now ancient olive grove (Matt. 26: 30-46) and the Church of All Nations, where tradition holds that Jesus prayed on the night of His betrayal (Matt. 26:36, John 18:1). Entering the Old City of Jerusalem through the Zion Gate, we walk to the most holy shrine of the Jewish people-the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) of Herod's temple. Beyond the wall lies the 35-acre temple area purchased by King David (2 Sam. 24:18-25) where Jesus was taken as a young boy, and about which Jesus Christ prophesied its destruction (Mark 13:1-2). On this site now stands the golden Dome of the Rock (the third holiest shrine in all Islam) and the El-Aksa Mosque. From the temple area, we make our way along the Via Dolorosa (the Way of the Cross), the road which Jesus walked after being sentenced by Pontius Pilate including stops at the Pools of Bethesda, where Jesus healed a paralytic (John 5:1-15), the Pavement (where Jesus stood while being tried by Pilate), Ecce Homo Arch (Behold the Man), where Pilate ordered Christ to be brought forth to the Jews (John 19:5), and the ancient Cardo. A full and enlightening day! Dinner and overnight in Jerusalem.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, we will visit the Israel Museum to visit the Shrine of the Book, where the Dead Sea Scrolls are displayed. Additionally, the 1:50 scale model of Jerusalem, as the city would have appeared in Jesus' time, will fascinate you! Next, we take a short ride to visit Bethlehem, birthplace of Jesus. We will tour the Church of the Nativity and Shepherd’s Field, where the angel of the Lord proclaimed the Good News of the birth of the Savior (Luke 2: 8-18). After lunch, we will visit to the Garden Tomb for a time of peaceful and reflective meditation followed by Communion. Dinner and overnight in Jerusalem.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, the group checks out of the hotel and transfers to the airport for the flight back to the USA.
