Itinerary

DAY 1. Day 01 Arrival – Old Jaffa - Caesarea Maritima

- Arrival early morning. Meet and assist at Tel Aviv airport.
- Jaffa: Onto Old Jaffa to explore the ancient port city.
- Caesarea Maritima: The ancient city and harbor of Caesarea Maritima was built by Herod the Great at about 20 BCE. It was there that Peter the Apostle came and
baptized Cornelius the Centurion and his household, and the first Christian baptism was conferred on Gentiles. When newly converted Paul the Apostle was in danger in Jerusalem, he was transferred to Caesarea where he was imprisoned for about two years.
- Dinner Overnight in Tel Aviv.

Day 2. Golan Heights, Haifa Gardens

- Caesarea Philippi: Also known as Banias, is a natural spring and
archaeological site by the ancient city located at the foot of Mount Hermon
in the Golan Heights. Jesus, while in this area, asked his closest disciples who
they thought he was. Here Peter made his confession of Jesus as the Messiah
and the "Son of the living God.”
- The Golan Heights: Also Known as the Land of Bashan. According to
Deuteronomy, the Israelites invaded Bashan and conquered it from the
Amorites. We will stop at the peak of an extinct volcano (Mt. Bental) and
enjoy a beautiful panoramic view into Syria and Bashan.
- Mt. Carmel - Muhraqa: In ancient Canaanite culture, high places were frequently considered to be sacred, and Mount Carmel appears to have been no exception. In the Book of Kings, Prophet Elijah challenges 450 prophets of the god Baal to a contest at the altar on Mount Carmel to determine whose deity was genuinely in control of the Kingdom of Israel.
- Haifa Gardens.
- Dinner and Overnight in Tiberius.

wedding feast. Renewal of marriage promises for couples.

during the Sermon on the Mount. Visit the suggested location of this mount
(Matthew 5).

multiplication of the loaves and fishes (Mark 6:30-46) and the fourth
Resurrection appearance of Jesus (John 21:1-24) after his Crucifixion.
- Capernaum: The town is cited in the Gospel of Luke and the Gospel of John
where it was reported to have been near the hometown of the apostles
Simon Peter, Andrew, James and John, as well as the tax collector Matthew.
Jesus selected this town as the center of his public ministry in the Galilee
after he left the small mountainous hamlet of Nazareth (Matthew 4:12–17).

Hades," (Matthew 11:23) because of their lack of response to his teaching.

Day 4 Day 04 The Jordan Valley and The Wilderness of Judea

- Drive south through the Jordan Valley.
- Beit Shean: During a subsequent battle against the Jewish King Saul at nearby
Mount Gilboa in 1004 BC, the Philistines prevailed. 1 Samuel 31 states that
the victorious Philistines hung the body of King Saul on the walls of Beit
She’an. The Hellenistic period (3rd-2nd century BC) saw the reoccupation of the
site of Beit She'an under the new name Scythopolis. During the Roman
period (1st c. BC – 4th c. AD) Scythopolis prospered and became the leading
city of the Decapolis, a loose confederation of ten cities that were centers of
Greco-Roman culture.
- Mount Gilboa: Continue driving south passing by Mt. Gilboa. In the Bible,
King Saul, Israel's first monarch, led a charge against the Philistines at this
mountain. The battle ends with the king falling on his own sword and
Jonathan (Saul's son) being killed in battle. David, who returns to the site
after the battle, curses the mountain: "Ye mountains of Gilboa, let there be
no dew nor rain upon you, neither fields of choice fruits; for there the shield
of the mighty was vilely cast away, the shield of Saul, not anointed with oil"
(II Samuel 1:21).
- Jericho: The city may be the oldest continuously occupied city in the world.
Archeology dates the city back to the 10th millennia BCE.
- The Mount of Temptation: A view to the mountain which is said to be the hill
in the Judean Desert where Jesus was tempted by the devil after his baptism
(Matthew 4:8).
- The Original Baptismal Site: Also known as “Qasr El-Yahud”. It is the
traditional spot where the baptism of Jesus took place (Matthew 3:13-17).

the Jordan River and Elijah the Prophet ascended to heaven.

of the burial and resurrection of Jesus. Here we have the possibility of having
a worship service.
- The Temple Mount: Traditions often identified it with the biblical Mount
Moriah where the story of the binding of Isaac is set. The Temple Mount is
the holiest site in Judaism, which regards it as the place where God's divine
presence is manifested more than any other place. The Mount has great
significance in Christianity due to the role the Temple played in the life of
Jesus. As a twelve-year-old boy, Jesus was found in the Temple where he
confounded the Jewish theologians with his knowledge of the Torah. (Luke
2:41-50) During his ministry, Jesus challenged the corruption of those who
used the Temple for commerce and extortion (Matthew 21:12-17) and
prophesied the temple's destruction, which came to pass in AD 70
- The Wailing Wall: Also known as The Western Wall. Parts of the wall are
remnants of the ancient wall that surrounded the Jewish Temple's courtyard, and is arguably the most sacred site recognized by the Jewish faith outside of
the Temple Mount itself.

(Golgotha), where Jesus was crucified, and also contains the place where
Jesus is said to have been buried. (Optional).

Jewish quarter, Christian quarter, Armenian quarter and Arab quarter also
known as old Jerusalem

Day 12: Jerusalem

- Mt. of Olives: The Mount of Olives is one of three peaks of a mountain ridge
which runs for 2.2 miles just east of the Old City across the Kidron Valley, in
this area called the Valley of Jehoshaphat. Several key events in the life of
Jesus as related in the Gospels took place on the Mount of Olives, and in the
Book of Acts it is described as the place from which Jesus ascended to
heaven. From here, we will have a panoramic view towards the Temple
Mount and the Old City of Jerusalem.
- The Garden of Gethsemane: Located at the foot of the Mount of Olives in
Jerusalem, it is most famous as the place where Jesus prayed, the night
before his arrest and crucifixion.
- Mt. Zion: Important sites on Mount Zion are:
The Dormition Abbey: During his visit to Jerusalem in 1898 for the dedication
of the Protestant Church of the Redeemer, Kaiser Wilhelm II bought this
piece of land on Mount Zion and presented it to the "German Union of the
Holy Land". According to local tradition, it was on this spot, near the site of
the Last Supper, that the Mary, Mother of Jesus, died.
King David's Tomb: According to a tradition beginning in the 12th century it
is a site viewed as the burial place of David, King of Israel.
The Room of the Last Supper (Cenacle): Since at least the fourth century AD,
it is a structure identified as the Cenacle, the site of the Last Supper, and has been a popular Christian pilgrimage site on Mount Zion.
