On this hill, Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount. Stop at the Chapel of the Primacy, where Peter confessed his devotion to Christ 3 times. At Tabgha, the traditional location for the calling of the disciples and the feeding of the 5,000, visit the Church of Loaves and Fish. Recall His teaching and preaching the gospel of the kingdom.

At the ruins of Tel Dan, see the altar built by King Jeroboam I (I Kings 12:25 -30) and learn about where the “House of David” fragment from the First Temple Period was discovered. Continue on to Caesarea Philippi, where Peter told the Lord, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God!” (Matt. 16: 16). A scenic drive along the Golan Heights will give you some beautiful views of Syria and Jordan as well as Israel. In Magdala, once home to Mary Magdalene, visit a recently discovered first-century synagogue.

This morning, travel to Beit Shean, where the Philistines hung the bodies of Saul and Jonathan on the walls.

Visit the Church of the Nativity, built above the cave and considered the world’s oldest functioning church (Luke 2). Continue on to Jerusalem, where you will overnight.

Day 7 April 17 - Jerusalem

Stand on the Mount of Olives for a remarkable view of Jerusalem (the Golden City); Jesus stood here before ascending into heaven forty days after His resurrection (Acts 1:9-12). In the Kidron Valley across from the walls of Jerusalem, pray as Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane (Matt. 26:36). Continue to Mount Zion to visit the House of the High Priest Caiaphas, where Jesus was questioned the night of His betrayal (Matt. 26:57). Recall the events of the Last Supper as you visit the traditional location of the Upper Room (Mark 14:12-26). Spend time in prayer at the Western Wall (the only remnant of the Second Temple of Jerusalem) and sit on the Teaching Steps where Jesus taught.

Day 8 April 18 - Jerusalem

Walk the Temple Mount (conditions permitting), once the site of the Temple of Solomon (II Chronicles 3) and home to the Dome of the Rock. See where Jesus healed on the Sabbath at the Pool of Bethesda (John 5: 1-18). Walk the Via Dolorosa (“the Way of the Cross”) to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (John 19), built over the traditional sites of the crucifixion and burial of Jesus. In Jerusalem, visit Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust Memorial, with its poignant exhibits honoring the lives lost during the Holocaust.

Day 9 April 19 - Jericho, Qumran, Masada, Dead Sea

Head to Jericho to visit the ruins of the ancient city Joshua conquered (Josh. 6:20). Off in the distance, you can see the traditional site of the Temptation of Jesus (Matt. 4:1). Stop in Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in 1947 by a Bedouin shepherd. You can enjoy lunch on your own here at Jericho. We make a stop at Ein Gedi, where David and his band of men hid from Saul. Then, enjoy a visit to Masada, the spectacular mountaintop fortress built by Herod that later became the final tragic stronghold of the Jewish rebellion against the Romans. Ride the cable car to the top to explore the fortress and look down upon the remains of the Roman camps and siege ramp below. Return to Jerusalem for dinner and overnight.

Day 10 April 20 - Hezekiah’s Tunnel, City of David, Herodion, Israel Museum
