Have you ever dreamed of visiting the land of Israel? Have you been to Israel before, but have always wanted to return? Then we would love you to join our tour! We have partnered with Chosen People to deliver an unforgettable experience to Israel.
The Holy Land is a place where the past meets the present and the words of Scripture come alive not only embracing them both but pointing us to the future. We will be exploring the ancient stones of the biblical sites as well as learning about what is happening today.
We will start our tour in Tel Aviv and then head to the Galilee to celebrate Shabbat, visiting the sites where Jesus taught and see where walked. There will even be an opportunity to be baptised in the Jordan, in the same river that Jesus was baptised in and also to visit his home town of Nazareth. We will take time to float in the Dead Sea, visit the Qumran caves and get refreshed in Ein Gedi, a desert oasis. Finally, spending time in Jerusalem, the city of the great King, where we will pray at the western wall, sit where Jesus sat on the night he was betrayed in Gethsemane and recount the story of Calvary in the very place it happened!
This is a trip to which will draw you closer to God and give you a whole new perspective.
DAY 1 Arrive at Ben Gurion and enjoy dinner at our hotel in Tel Aviv
DAY 2 Explore the ancient port of Jaffa where Jonah ran away from God and the first gentile was filled with the Holy Spirit, next visit the Chosen People Ministries outreach centre, then stop off at the ancient Roman port of Caesarea where Paul was held in Prison and finally arrive at Jesus’s hometown of Nazareth.
DAY 3 Start the day off at Tel Dan where Jesus proclaimed ‘on this rock I will build my church’ then head to a viewpoint of Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and learn about the 6-day war. After this, there will be wine tasting on the Golan before celebrating Shabbat in the Galilee.
DAY 4 The morning will be spent visiting sites around the Galilee, the first stop the Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus delivered the sermon on the mount, then head to Tabgha the site of the feeding of the 5000, and finally Capernaum where Jesus healed Peter’s mother in law. The day will finish off with a boat ride and with worship on the sea of Galilee.
DAY 5 We will start with visiting the Jordan river and having an opportunity to be baptised where Jesus was baptised. Then head to the city of the great king – Jerusalem! We will then look over the Mount of Olives and head down to the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus declared ‘Not my will but your will be done’.
DAY 6 The whole day will be spent in Jerusalem, first visiting the city of David, then walk the southern steps of the temple mount, the same steps that Jesus walked! We will then have the chance to see the western wall and learn about the second temple whilst going through the underground tunnels. We will then visit Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum and learn about the atrocities of WW2 but we will also hear the stories of hope and bravery from the righteous amongst the nations.
