Day 3 – Tuesday, July 24

Tel Aviv/ Caesarea/ Capernaum/ Muhraqa/ Megiddo/ Nazareth/ Nain Move along the Mediterranean coast to visit the capital of Roman Palestine and birthplace of Gentile Christianity, Caesarea Maritima, on the coast (Leadership Presentation #1). Then cut through Mount Carmel to ascend to the Mukhraqa, on the summit where Elijah bested the prophets of Baal and Asherah and consider that event recorded in the book of Kings (Leadership Presentation #2). Then it is on to Solomon's store city of Megiddo for a look at city gates and walls, stables and a walk through a defensive water system from the days of Ahab. After lunch we move north through the Valley of Armageddon. Time permitting, we will briefly stop at the lower Galilean town of Nain where Jesus raised a widow's son from the dead. The Herodian cemetery is clearly visible for considering Luke's account of this event. We will then head up hill to the Precipice, just outside of Nazareth, before touring the little Galilean town of Nazareth, where Jesus grew up. Finally, we cut through the hills, pass through Cana, the site of Jesus' first miracle, to the Sea of Galilee and our lakeside residence on the eastern coast. Overnight: Kibbutz Ein Gev.

Day 4 – Wednesday, July 25

Chorazin/Capernaum/Boat Ride/Gergesa-Kursi We begin the day at Gergesa-Kursi, the site of the casting out of the demons into the swine herd (Leadership Presentation #3). Then we visit the ruins of Capernaum, Jesus’ base on the sea, where he resided with his disciples for an extended time in the home of Simon’s mother-in-law. Next we take a firsthand look at life inside an ancient Jewish village from the days of Jesus at Chorazin. We then travel north to the base to Caesarea Philipi (Banias), where Peter most likely confessed Jesus to be "the Christ" and Jesus gave him the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. We then visit the Mt. of the Beatitudes, where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount. Finally, we board a boat for a cruise on the Sea of Galilee. This setting will give us opportunity to consider the “sea stories” in the Gospel narratives. Overnight: Kibbutz Ein Gev.

Day 5 – Thursday, July 26 -

Beth Shean/Qumran/Jericho After a restful night’s sleep we leave the Sea of Galilee region by way of Beth Shean (known as Scythopolis in Jesus’ day) near Mount Gilboa. This decapolis city gives us the most complete picture available of Gentile Galilee during the time of Christ (Leadership Presentation #4). We will visit a Baptismal site on the shores of the Jordan River. Lunch will find us in Jericho, that nemesis of Joshua. Then we will view Elisha's Spring and Zacchaeus' Sycamore Tree in Jericho. Next we will head south for a first look at the Dead Sea, 1300ft. below sea level and a stop at Qumran, where the famous Dead Sea Scroll were found. Overnight: Hod Hotel

Day 6 – Friday, July 27

Ein Gedi Nature Hike/Masada/Swim in the Dead Sea/Eilat This day begins with a beautiful hike up the canyon of Ein Gedi, where David hid out from Saul during his days as a renegade. We’ll enjoy the spring that sustained David during these trying days. Then we motor to Masada where we board a cable car to the summit of this mountain fortress where Jewish Zealots stood to their final days against the 10th legion of Rome (Leadership Presentation #5). After lunch, we take a dip in the shallows of the Dead Sea and then consider the locations of Sodom and Gomorrah at the southern end of the Sea. We will then travel south through the Arava Valley (approx. 2 – 2.5 hours) to Eilat on the shores of the Red Sea. Overnight: Leonardo Royal Hotel, Eilat

Day 7 – Saturday, January 28

Eilat/Timna/Eilat We set out early to tour Timna, ancient Egyptian copper mining site and marvel natural rock formations. Then we will travel to Eilat's southern coast to visit the Underwater Observatory, which will take us into a Red Sea coral reef. We will also have some free time to swim in the Red Sea (water shoes recommended because of sea urchins). Late afternoon camel ride at Wadi Shlomo Camel Ranch. Overnight: Leonardo Royal Hotel, Eilat

Day 8 – Sunday, July 29

Arad/Beersheva/Lachish/Azeka/Jerusalem This morning we visit Tel Arad, where rest the ruins of Solomon’s fort and temple established during the latter days of his reign. Then we motor north to Tel Beersheba, city of Abraham and fortress city protecting the southwest flank of the kingdom of Judah. After lunch, it is on to the lowlands and Tel Lachish, where we examine what’s left of the attack of Sennacherib’s Assyrian regulars on this strong point of King Hezekiah’s kingdom. A short ride from here brings us to the Elah Valley where David fought Goliath (Leadership Presentation #6). And what a climax to this day as we ascend the mountains of Judah to the city of Jerusalem, home base now for us until the end of our trip. Overnight: Grand Court Hotel, Jerusalem

City of David/Southern Wall Excavations/Wailing Wall/ St. Peter in Gallicantu/Jewish Quarter/Bethlehem. This morning it's off to explore David's palace and Hezekiah's Tunnel at the City of David. Then we’ll walk up to the temple area and to the Herodian street from the 1st century. We sit where he taught his disciples during those days before his death (Southern Wall, Robinson's Arch, Davidson Center) and examine the sacred temple platform developed by Solomon and Herod (Temple Mount), including the well-known Western Wall which formed the retaining buttress for the temple of Jesus' day. After lunch in the Jewish Quarter, the ancient Upper City, we’ll interact with an Orthodox Jewish shopkeeper about his feelings about a coming Messiah and the nature of saving faith. We will travel to Bethlehem to visit the Church of the Nativity in Manger Square. Overnight: Grand Court Hotel, Jerusalem
10

Day 10– Tuesday, July 31

Mount of Olives/Gethsemane/Church of the Holy Sepulchre. We begin early this final climactic day of our tour on the historic Mount of Olives with a panoramic tracing of the events of Passion Week. We view the Dominus Flevit church, built originally by the Byzantines to commemorate the event of Christ's weeping over Jerusalem. The agony of Christ takes on new meaning at the Garden of Gethsemane (Leadership Presentation #7). We will visit the church of St. Peter in Gallicantu, built over the ruins of Caiaphas’ house and courtyard. Then after lunch we walk the Via Dolorosa (“way of sorrows”) from the site of the Roman trials before Pilate to Calvary and its tomb complex at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. We conclude our day with a visit to the Garden Tomb, which is also called Gordon's Calvary. Overnight: Grand Court Hotel, Jerusalem
