After breakfast (at our hotel), our Bible Prophecy Tour takes us north along the coastal Plain of Sharon (Mediterranean coast), the old coastal road – the Via Maris, which linked Egypt and Babylon, as we journey towards Haifa. Our first stop will be the ancient city of Caesarea, built by Herod the Great and once occupied by Roman rule. Caesarea is also where Pontius Pilate had his base; where Cornelius lived and was baptized (Acts 10); where Paul embarked to Tarsus (Acts 9:30) and where Philip preached (Acts 8:40). We will view the excavated Roman theatre, with its acoustic and theatrical sound. It was used for many performances throughout the centuries. We will continue with our day towards Haifa. Upon our arrival, we will ascend to the top of Mt. Carmel, which is also where Elijah fought the 400 false profits. We will view the botanical gardens below and a view from a distance of Haifa Bay.

From here, the Books of Daniel and Revelation will come alive as we read about the final Battle of Armageddon, while viewing the Plains of Jezreel. Visit the archaeological excavations at Megiddo, including the well-preserved water supply system. We will continue with our drive to Nazareth, to visit the Church of the Annunciation, where it is believed the Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary. We will also visit the site of the Synagogue of Nazareth, where Jesus preached his first sermon. Nazareth is where Jesus grew up in His youth years, working with His father as a carpenter in their family shop. A short distance away is; Nazareth Village, which is a replica of a village 2000 years old, similar to Nazareth at the time of Jesus. We will witness the locals mending their chores. We will visit Cana, the site where Jesus turned water into wine at a wedding ceremony.

We will drive back south towards Western Galilee to visit Tabgha, the site of the multiplication of the loaves and the fishes (John 6:1-14) and the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus delivered perhaps the most significant sermon ever preached – “The Sermon On The Mount” (Matt. 5). We will continue to Kibbutz Nof Ginosar for a St. Peter’s fish lunch. After lunch, we will visit Yigal Alon Museum, where the “Jesus boat” is displayed.

We will board a boat for a short cruise on the Sea of Galilee. We will journey to Capernaum (Kfar Nachum), the center of Jesus’ Galilean ministry and the site of many of His miracles (Mark 2:4; Matt. 8:5; 14-17; 9:1-7; 17:18). We will see the remains of Peter’s (Shimon’s) house and the synagogue site where Jesus taught and worshiped (Mark 1:21; Luke 4:31).

After breakfast, we will drive to the Old City and enter through the Dung Gate. Our first stop will be the Southern Wall excavations. Here, we will see the beauty of the ruins, including the famous Robinson Arch, which used to lead the high priests into the Temple. We will proceed through the broad stone stairway down to the Western Wall, also known as the “Kotel” to see Judaism Holiest place. We will begin at the passageways descending through the many layers of Jerusalem’s past through the Western Wall Tunnels, also called “The Rabbi’s Tunnels”. Inside, a most interesting model shows the different dwelling periods and history of the inhabitants of Jerusalem. We will stand on the site believed to be the nearest spot to the “Holy of all Holies” for Jews around the world. We will exit along the Christian Quarter to see the Pool of Bethesda, where Jesus healed a lame man (John 5) and the Crusader church of Saint Anne. From here we will retrace the steps of Jesus along the Via Dolorosa (the way of the cross) and its stations. We pass through the colorful bazaars, alleyways and marketplaces to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. We will proceed to the Jewish Quarter, which was reconstructed after the city was unified at the conclusion of the Six-Day War in 1967.

Friday, March 31 – Day 7: Jerusalem/Bethlehem

After breakfast, we will start the day with a visit to the Garden Tomb. It is believed by many, this was the site of Golgotha, where Jesus was crucified and resurrected. We will drive to the top of the Mount of Olives, for a panoramic view of Jerusalem. Here, we will also see the Golden Gates and the ancient Jewish cemetery. We will stroll down the mount by foot to the tear shaped church of Dominus Flevit, which represents where Jesus visualized the destruction of Jerusalem and wept. We will also see the Jerusalem stone ossuaries. We will continue with our short walk down the mountain to the bottom to visit the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed in many occasions and where Jesus was arrested. Here, we will also have the option to visit the Church of All Nations. From here we proceed to Mt. Zion to visit the Upper Room and David’s Tomb, where the Last Supper was held (Mark 14.13, Luke 22. 10-38, Matt 26 17-29, Acts 1.13 and Acts 2). We will drive to Israel Museum to see the model city of Jerusalem as it used to look like in 66 CE. In that fateful year, the Great Revolt against the Romans erupted, resulting in the destruction of the city and the Temple. The ancient city was then at its largest, covering an area of ca. 445 acres (more than twice the size of the Old City today). In the same complex, we will also visit the Shrine of the Book to see the original Dead Sea scrolls and where they are housed. In the afternoon, we will leave Jerusalem and drive towards Bethlehem. We will arrive at Manger Square and enter into the Church of the Nativity. It is believed by many that this was the site of Jesus’ birth place.

Saturday, April 1 – Day 8: Dead Sea area and Masada to Eilat and the Red Sea

After an early breakfast, we will drive towards the Dead Sea area. Our route will take us back down the main highway towards the shores of the Dead Sea.

We will turn south and start driving along the shores of the Dead Sea to visit Qumran, where a young shepherd boy discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls. We will continue south to the legendary mountaintop plateau of Masada. We will ascend by cable car to the ancient synagogue and to explore the ancient fortress. This was the story, of the last stronghold of the Jewish Zealots in their struggle against the Romans. The Zealots held out for three years against the legions of Flavius Silva and chose to die as free men at their own hands in preference to Roman slavery. From the top of Masada, the outlines of the Roman encampments are still visible below. We will have some time to float on the unsinkable waters of the Dead Sea, before leaving to Eilat. We will arrive to Eilat for check-in, followed by dinner at our hotel. After dinner, enjoy a short walk around the city.

Sunday, April 2 – Day 9: Petra

After a very early breakfast, we will be driven in the early morning to the Israel/Jordanian border. After visa proceedings at the Jordanian Border, we will drive straight to Petra through desert highways. Our ultimate destination is the astonishing rose-red city of Petra which was built by the Nabateans (an early Arab tribe). Petra was renowned for its massive architectures, pools, dams and water channels. Petra is the legacy of the Nabateans who settled in the South of Jordan more than 2000 years ago. The visit begins with the possibility of a short horseback ride, about 700m, until the entrance of the Siq, which is about 1.2 Km long (walking distance). There is also a possibility to rent a chariot (extra) to get inside Petra and back to the gate outside. Petra is famous for its huge monuments such as The Treasury, Royal Tombs, the Court, Roman Theater, Roman Street, Qassier Rl-Bint (Palace of Pharaoh’s daughter) and many other smaller monuments which fascinate visitors. The city itself is almost 45 Square Km and is considered to be the second wonder of the world. After the visit, we will enjoy lunch in a nice restaurant, followed by a drive back to the border. En route, we will stop for a short visit in Aqaba, with possibility for a short walk in the town. Transfer to border at approximately 18:00 for crossing back to Eilat. In the evening, we enjoy dinner at our hotel.
