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 for dinner and overnight.
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.
Chorazin | Tel Dan | Bental | Dan Nature Reserve | Caesarea Philippi
The beautiful northern mountains of Israel await you today. At Tel Dan, there is a city gate from the time of Abraham along with an altar from the days of Israel’s divided kingdom. You will get to walk through an incredible nature reserve at Dan where you will see the beginnings of the Dan River, which joins with other streams to form the Jordan River. The water is crystal-clear and pure. You will see a gorgeous waterfall as the head- waters of the Jordan River cascade into a beautiful mountain stream. Your next stop will be the site of the Apostle Peter’s confession of Christ at Caesarea Philippi. You will see the second source of the Jordan River at Banias. As you drive back to the hotel, you will hear an explanation of Israel's incredible history from 1948 until the present day and learn about the strategic importance this region has played and will continue to play to the nation of Israel. After your day in the mountains, you will retire to your hotel.
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.
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.
