Israel & Jordan Tour



Next Israel & Jordan tour date: May 17-29, 2018

Follow in the footsteps of Jesus during the day and learn more about Jesus in study sessions at night! Travel to New Testament sites connected with Jesus’ life and the early church: Bethlehem, Nazareth, Herod the Great’s harbor in Caesarea, Capernaum, Bethsaida, Caesarea Philippi, and the major biblical sites in Jerusalem. Other exciting activities include a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee, floating in the Dead Sea, and visits to Masada, Qumran, and the Herodium. This tour also uniquely involves key sites in Jordan: Bethany, where Jesus was baptized; Machaerus, where John was beheaded; Mt. Nebo, where Moses saw the promised land before his death; Jerash, with its impressive Roman ruins; Amman, and the amazing city of Petra. Most days conclude with an evening study session that involves an inspirational lesson about Jesus’ life and ministry or the background of the NT.
