Thursday, November 24 – Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Mt. of Beatitudes, Tabgha, Boat Ride, Jordan River
After enjoying an Israeli buffet breakfast, we will spend most of our day around the Sea of Galilee. We start the day with a drive along the shores of the lake, passing the area of Magdala, home of Mary Magdalene. Next, we travel to Capernaum, and stand in the ruins of the synagogue built atop the remains of the one in which our Lord Jesus taught. Visit the Mount of Beatitudes, the traditional site where Jesus preached His Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5-7) and stop at Tabgha, the site of the feeding of the 5,000 (Luke 9). After a fish lunch (included), we will enjoy a beautiful boat ride across the Sea of Galilee before stopping at the Jordan River for a time of spiritual blessing.
Friday, November 25 – Chorazim, Tel Dan, Caesarea Philippi, Golan Heights
Today experience the northern area of Israel. Walk the streets of Chorazim, listed as a “city of woe” by Jesus. Continue to Tel Dan, one of ancient Israel’s boundary markers – “From Dan to Beersheba,” and journey to Caesarea Philippi, where Peter proclaimed that Jesus was the Messiah. Travel through the Golan Heights and better understand their strategic importance to the security of Israel.
Saturday, November 26 – Cana, Nazareth (Mt. of Precipice), Megiddo, Mt. Carmel, Caesarea by the Sea
After our delicious buffet breakfast, we will pass through Cana where Jesus turned the water into wine on our way to Nazareth, the boyhood home of our Lord (Lk. 2). We will stand on the Mt. of Precipice, where tradition says the locals attempted to throw Jesus off the cliff after preaching in their synagogue. We will visit Megiddo overlooking the Valley of Armageddon (Rev. 16). We will continue to the top of Mount Carmel, where Elijah prayed down the fire from Heaven and defeated the 450 prophets of Baal (I Kings 18). The final sightseeing stop today will be at Caesarea by the Sea on the Mediterranean coastline. It was here that Cornelius the centurion and his household were saved and baptized (Acts 10), and it was also where Paul made his defense before Festus and King Agrippa prior to his final journey to Rome (Acts 25 – 26). Continue on to Jerusalem, capital city of Israel where we will check into our hotel for dinner and overnight.
Sunday, November 27 – Mt. of Olives, Palm Sunday Road, Garden of Gethsemane, Bethlehem
This morning we can take in a remarkable view of the Old City from atop the Mount of Olives (Luke 19 & II Sam. 15) and visit the Site of the Ascension (Acts 1). Together we’ll walk down Palm Sunday Road and take time to pray among the ancient olive trees in the Garden of Gethsemane (John 18). We end our day with a visit to Bethlehem (Luke 2), where our Lord was born. After a full day of sightseeing, we will enjoy dinner and overnight in our hotel in Jerusalem.
Monday, November 28 – Upper Room, Caiaphas’ House, Pool of Bethesda, Garden Tomb – Gordon’s Calvary
Sing praises in the Upper Room (Luke 22), then go across the street to the remains of the House of the High Priest Caiaphas (John 18) and walk through some of the ancient rooms. Continue our journey through the Old City to the Pool of Bethesda (John 5) where Jesus performed the Sabbath miracle. Finally, sense the agony of Christ’s crucifixion at Gordon’s Calvary (Luke 23) and experience the exhilaration and reality of the resurrection at the Garden Tomb! After our final dinner in Israel, prepare for departure back to the USA.
