Study Tour to Israel
FEBRUARY 25 – MARCH 6, 2018 – TOUR IS FULL
Grab your Bible as we walk the Scriptures: from Elijah’s Mount Carmel confrontation with Baal worshipers, to the valley of Armageddon in the book of Revelation. Walk the hills of Nazareth, the boyhood town of Jesus. From the ancient texts to the Gospels you will discover your Bible is a perfect road map.
Float on the Sea of Galilee as we read the accounts of Jesus. Feel the Spirit move us at the Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus spoke – the words still seem to hang in the air. From there we will move onto another spiritual high with a very special baptism in the Jordan River. The Galilee holds many opportunities for spiritual renewal as we begin to get our footing in the Holy Land.
It’s amazing to travel from the lush climate of Galilee to the stark harshness of the desert where Jews fled many conquering armies. Visit Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered and visit the ancient fortress of Masada or hike the desert oasis Ein Gedi.
From the desert we will “go up to Jerusalem”. Coming out of the desert, rising over the mountains to see the city of God nestled in the valleys is truly a moving experience. In Jerusalem, we will sit on the steps where Jesus walked when entering the Temple to reach, heal and challenge the money-changers. Visit the Western Wall, Temple Mount, Mount of Olives, Kidron Valley, Garden of Gethsemane, and Golgotha along with other sites.
God’s message of redemption, forgiveness, and atonement in His blessed Son will unfold before your eyes. Our travel agent will provide a tour guide, bus and portage. We will stay in first class hotels throughout our journey.
