Friday, October 6 – Day 3: Dead Sea area – the Feast

After breakfast, we leave Jerusalem and travel south through the Judean Wilderness towards the shores of the Dead Sea. We will start to descend to the lowest point on the surface of earth to 1305 feet (398m) below sea level and arrive to the shores of the Dead Sea. We proceed south along the Dead Sea shores to visit Qumran, where a young shepherd boy discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls. We will continue to the legendary mountaintop plateau of Masada and ascend by cable car to the ancient fortress. Here was 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 rather than submit to Roman slavery and torture. We will return north to visit Ein Gedi reserve. Here, we will walk through the gardens and into an oasis of the desert. It is also where David hid from Saul. It is also believed David wrote most of the book of Psalms in the caves above. We will prepare for the opening ceremonies of the Feast of Tabernacles” with the International Christian Embassy Israel, where dinner starts at 4:30 PM, where thousands will gather from across the globe. It will be the 50th years of celebrations of the International Christian Embassy Israel. After Shabbat dinner and show, we will return back to our hotel in Jerusalem.

Saturday, October 7 – day 4: Jerusalem/Bethlehem

After breakfast, we will start our day at the top of the Mount of Olives, for a panoramic view of Jerusalem for an incredible panoramic view of The Golden Gates and the Old City. We will have the choice of walking down or driving down the mountain to visit the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus was arrested, because of Judah’s betrayal. From here we proceed by bus across the Kidron Valley, past the tombs of Absolom, Zacharias, James and King Jehoshaphat to Mt. Zion. We will visit the site of David’s tomb and the Upper Room where the Last Supper was held (Mark 14.13, Luke 22. 10-38, Matt 26 17-29, Acts 1.13 and Acts 2). We continue to the House of Caiaphas – the high priest who interrogated Jesus the night of His betrayal (Mark 14:53- 65). We will conclude our day with a communion at the Garden Tomb. It is believed by many, this was the site of Golgotha, where Jesus was crucified and where he resurrected. In the afternoon, we will return to our hotel and prepare for our King of Kings dance appearance and worship. We will enjoy the worship and some prayer before heading back to our hotel. We will enjoy another relaxing dinner at our hotel.

The journey quickly heads underground to some of the newest archaeological excavations. Here, while exploring the recently excavated fortresses and passageways, visitors relive King David’s conquest of the Jebusite city as described in the 2nd Book of Samuel. We will continue 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.
