Itinerary Thru Bible Lands
We will depart from Orlando International Airport and
arrive at Kennedy Airport in New York City. We will board
our flight to Israel arriving at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel
Aviv the next afternoon.
We’ll meet you and board an air-conditioned bus to make
a heart-warming trip up to Jerusalem. We’ll visit the
shepherds’ fields (the biblical location of Jesus’ birth), then
we’ll make our way to the promenade for a magnificent
panoramic view of both the Old and New Cities. Then we’ll
spend the night in the first of the deluxe hotels.
Today we’ll visit the Holocaust Museum. At the Shrine of
the Book, we’ll have the opportunity to view the Dead Sea
Scrolls.We’ll also see the giant Menorah, the symbol of the
state of Israel. A visit to the Second Temple model will give
you a perspective of Jerusalem at the time of Christ.We’ll
end this day by going to the Western Wall.
We will head up the Mediterranean Coast to Caesarea, built
by Herod the Great, where Gentiles were first converted to
Christianity. From Caesarea we’ll go up toMt. Carmel, the
site of the contest between Elijah and the prophets of Baal.
We’ll then visit a replica of the village of Nazareth at the
time of Jesus. We’ll stay the night on the shores of the Sea
Our Lord spent almost 30 years of His earthly life in the Galilee region and we will trace His footsteps, beginning at Capernaum, the headquarters for His ministry. We’ll then visit Caesarea Philippi in the area where the transfiguration took place. Traveling through the Golan Heights we’ll get a better understanding of the ongoing conflict between Syria and Israel. We’ll have lunch on the Sea of Galilee, where the menu will include St. Peter’s fish. As we travel across the Sea of Galilee to Beth Saida on the “Jesus Boat” we’ll study the story of the feeding of the 5,000 and see the Mount of Beatitudes.
We start this morning traveling through the Jezreel Valley on our way to Megiddo. With Bible in hand we’ll visualize the Battle of Armageddon. On the way we’ll visit one of the most interesting archaeological digs in Israel. Further down the Jordan Valley we come to Gilgal, the site where Joshua and the children of Israel first camped as they entered into the Promised Land.
As we make our way through the Judean Desert to the Dead Sea,we’ll stop at Qumran, the location where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. We will take a quick hike up to the waterfalls of En Gedi, where David hid from King Saul. A highlight of our trip will include a visit to Masada. Make sure you bring your bathing suit because just before returning to Jerusalem we’ll have an opportunity to swim in the Dead Sea.
Early this morning, we’ll start on the Mount of Olives and make our way down to the Temple Mount, walking the same route that Jesus would have taken on His Triumphal Entry. We’ll also visit the Temple Institute where they are making preparations for the Third Temple. We will visit the Garden of Gethsemane, then stop at Pilate’s Judgment Hall, walk the Via Dolarosa, and the end our journey at the Garden Tomb.
Today we can sleep late and then get up for a day of light touring. In the evening we’ll meet for a farewell banquet to say goodbye to those not continuing on to Eilat and Petra. The banquetwill be a gourmet delight and give us the opportunity to reflect on the highlights of our trip. After the banquet, those returning to the U.S. will leave for Ben Gurion Airport to board the plane for the return flight to the U.S.
Today we arrive back home in the United States. We land at Kennedy Airport and board our connecting flight to Orlando.
