Join us on a trip to the Holy Land. It promises to be both spiritually enriching and life-changing. As you prepare for the journey, don’t forget to be prepared to be inspired, to be awed, to say over and over, “This is the exact place where Abraham lived… where the Temple stood… where Jesus was born…” Seeing the places you’ve learned about only in books, walking along the same path that Jesus walked, or touching the walls of an ancient monastery.
You will gain a perspective of the teachings of Jesus that you can only get by standing where he stood as He taught.
Places that we will visit include: Jerusalem, The Temple Mount, The Western (Wailing) Wall, Nazareth, Mount of Beatitudes, The Dead Sea, The Mediterranean Sea, Bethlehem, and many other sights.
Jerusalem, the capital city of Israel, has attracted millions of pilgrims over thousands of years, owing to its eternal history tied to the religious roots of Jews, Christians and Muslims. It holds the privilege of being the world’s holiest city, and has a wondrous story to tell every visitor who comes on a Holy Land Tour. The very walls and stones of the city and the whispering winds of the lanes relate its eventful history. It holds a central spot on ancient maps of the world and has been praised and adored with seventy names.
