Israel Bible Study Tour
November 4-15, 2020
An Israel Bible Study Tour is not just a tour of some faraway exotic place; it is a spiritual pilgrimage. As Christians, we trace our spiritual DNA to the land of Israel, and to the people of the Bible. Join us and discover your spiritual heritage by visiting the ancient hills, valleys, and villages of Israel from north to south. With every footstep, the black and white text of the Bible comes alive with brilliant color.
Overview of our Itinerary:
You will fly overnight from New York, arriving the next morning in Tel Aviv. From the Ben Gurion airport, we will travel to the Galilee together. Our first four nights will be at the Ginossar Holiday Village, a beautiful hotel on the Sea of Galilee. While staying there, we will tour the Galilee area and Northern Israel.
After we have toured Galilee and Northern Israel we will drive south to the Dead Sea. Along the way, we will stop and tour Bet-Shean, have the opportunity to be baptized in the Jordan river, and drive by the ancient city of Jericho. At the Dead Sea, we will stay at the David Dead Sea resort. There you have the opportunity to enjoy the unique beauty of the area and float in the sea.
The next morning, on the way to Jerusalem, we will tour the ancient fortress of Masada and see the nature reserve of Engedi. We will also drive by Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.
For the next four nights and days, we will tour the ancient city of Jerusalem. Your time in Jerusalem will even include one free day with no touring. Our hotel will be the Dan Boutique Jerusalem, an easy twenty-minute walk from the ancient city walls.
We will close our tour with an extraordinary farewell meal before heading to the Ben Gurion International airport to begin our journey home.
