  • Fri. Feb. 14

    Caesarea Maritime | Mt. Carmel | Valley of Armageddon | Megiddo | Nazareth | Arrive on the Sea of Galilee

    The day begins with a drive up the coast to the ancient port city of Caesarea Maritime where the ancient harbor, hippodrome and great theatre stand. The events of Acts 12 took place there. Close by you will see the aqueducts built by Herod the Great and then view the Valley of Armageddon from the heights of Mt. Carmel where Elijah slew the prophets of Baal. Descending from there you will visit Megiddo, Solomon’s Ancient chariot city, view Ahab’s water tunnel, cross the entire Jezreel Valley and begin the climb through the lower Galilean Mountains to Nazareth, the childhood home of Jesus. You then go to your wonderful hotel in Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee for dinner and overnight.


  • Sat. Feb. 15

    Sea of Galilee | Jesus Boat | Mount of Beatitudes | Tabgha | Capernaum | Lunch by the Sea | Baptism in the Jordan

    When you awake you can walk the shoreline of the Sea of Galilee and watch the sunrise before breakfast. You will enjoy a boat ride and time of worship on the Sea and sail to Nof Ginnosar to view an ancient boat. You will follow the footsteps of Christ as you visit the Mt. of Beatitudes, ancient Capernaum, Tabgha, and then have the opportunity to eat St. Peter’s fish at a nearby restaurant. After lunch if you desire, you may be baptized in the Jordan River. Returning to your hotel you can rest, have dinner, walk the city and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

  • Sun. Feb. 16

    Gideon Springs | Bet She’an | Qumran | Dead Sea

    This morning you will have an early check-out from your hotel and leave the beautiful Sea of Galilee, following alongside the Gilboa mountain range. At Harrod’s Springs you will see where Judge Gideon tested his men before the battle with the Midianites in the valley between Gilboa and Mt. Moreh. From there you will visit the last site before your journey down the Jordan Valley, Bet Shan. While not mentioned in the New Testament, it is an Old Testament city and the best preserved Roman city from that period in Israel today. You will have lunch, a break and then begin to descend  toward the Plains of Jericho as you head to Qumran , the center of the Essenes.  Qumran is home of the ancient caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. From there, you will continue south to your beautiful hotel , the David Dead Sea Spa and Resort, where you may float in the waters of the Dead Sea, the lowest spot on earth, if you desire.

  • Mon. Feb. 17   

    Masada | Ein Gedi | Wadi Qelt | Jerusalem – Mt. of Olives

    Today you will go on to the mighty fortress Masada, the last stronghold and stand of the zealots against Rome, on the edge of the barren Negev Desert.  Masada is a symbol of courage and perseverance for the Jewish people, where 960 Jewish defenders organized their last resistance to the roman conquerors and took their own lives rather than surrender into slavery.   From there, you  will continue northward in the  desert where ibex roam at Ein Gedi, David’s hideout from Saul.  Time permitting, you will stop at Wadi Qelt to overlook the barren Judean wilderness and the Valley of the Shadow of Death. After passing by ancient Jericho the climb to Jerusalem begins while viewing scenery and traveling the same route the ancient pilgrims would have taken as they made their journey to Jerusalem for the great feasts of Israel. Today you finally arrive in the City of God, the City of David and the ancient and modern capital of Israel, Jerusalem. Your heart will leap with emotion as you stand on the overlooks of the Mount of Olives and see the breathtaking Mountain of Moriah. It is there where Abraham was to offer Isaac, Solomon built the first temple, and where Jesus walked, taught, died, rose again and will one day return in great  glory! This is only the beginning. You check into your hotel, have dinner and enjoy the first of five nights in your lovely hotel in Jerusalem.

  • Tues. Feb. 18   

    Qumran | Masada | Ein Gedi | Dead Sea

    You will spend an exciting morning descending to the Plains of Jericho, then on to the Dead Sea, the lowest spot on earth. You will visit Qumran, the center of the Essenes, where some of the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered, continuing south, you will see where the ibex roam at Ein Gedi, David’s hideout from Saul.  A short drive away you will be at Masada, the mountain-top fortress where the last zealots against Rome defended their freedom, and at the end, took their own lives rather than be taken as slaves. It is a heroic story many do not know. Before returning to Jerusalem, there will be a stop at the Dead Sea where you may float in the waters if you like, then you will once again follow that ancient pilgrim’s path to Jerusalem for dinner and overnight.
