This is a 14 day pilgrimage to Israel with many points of emphasis. We have designed this trip to help you better understand the Bible; deepen your personal relationship with the Lord; introduce you to the culture and cuisine in Israel, and introduce you to new friends. We will be traveling to biblical sites all over Israel and studying what the Bible says about them.
Scholars refer to the land of Israel as “the 5th Gospel” because the Bible and the land are so integrally tied together, and you will discover that studying the Bible “on location” allows you to understand it to wonderful new depths. There will be teachings on the Bible and the history and archaeology of Israel at every site. We will go to well-known sites as well as some not-so-well-known ones, and will see some of the recent archaeological work that is being done to uncover the history and culture of the Bible. We also try to make sure the tour gives people a real “hands on” experience of Israel, and so there will be opportunities to swim in the Sea of Galilee and Dead Sea and walk on the land, for example, the Wadi Hammam, the ancient path between Nazareth and Capernaum.
More than “just a tour,” we want this trip to be a “pilgrimage,” that is, a time to go deep with the Lord and connect with him in the heart as well as the mind. Pilgrims do gain knowledge, but they also gain significant personal insights, acquire or clarify their vision and goals, make personal commitments, and get answers to prayer.
The tour group leaves from New York and costs $4,790 per person.
