Daily Itinerary

Day 1 Nov 7 (Mon)

Depart the USA for the Biblical Heartland.

Day 2 Nov 8 (Tues)

Arrive in Tel Aviv. Transfer to your Netanya hotel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Day 3 Nov 9 (Wed): Caesarea-by-the-Sea, Mount Carmel, Megiddo

Travel to Caesarea-by-the-Sea, a site built as the imperial center for the Roman government. Its harbor, theater, and marbled streets signal the arrival of foreign occupation in the Heartland, and, not surprisingly, the beginning point for Christianity in the Gentile world. Visit Mount Carmel, where Elijah defeated the prophets of Baal. Visit the site of Megiddo, an ancient command post. Many battles were waged in its shadow, including those of Israelite kings and Egyptian pharaohs. Dinner and overnight in Tiberias.

Day 4 Nov 10 (Thurs): Magdala, Mount of Beatitudes, Capernaum, Boat ride on the Sea of Galilee

Dawn comes early at Magdala, an industrial site on the edge of the Sea of Galilee. View impressive remains that illustrate the fishing industry from the time of Christ. From Magdala, travel to other nearby places linked to specific Gospel moments: the calling of the disciples, miracle feedings, the Sermon on the Mount, and the restoration of Peter. Travel to Capernaum, the center of Jesus’ ministry. Visit the first-century synagogue, a place possibly visited by Jesus himself. Board a wooden boat of your own and ride across the Sea of Galilee. Dinner and overnight in Tiberias.

Day 5 Nov 11 (Fri): Olive Picking

Spend this day in the company of believers from Galilee and help them with the important task of bringing in the olive harvest. Return to Tiberias for dinner and overnight.

Day 6 Nov 12 (Sat): Dan, Caesarea Philippi, Nimrod, Golan Heights

Experience the beauty of the far north. Leave the Sea of Galilee behind and travel to the site of Dan. Here, an Israelite “high place,” gate complex, and fortification walls are visible. Continue to the birthplace of the Jordan River at Panias, named after the goat-god, Pan. Consider the nearby site of Caesarea Philippi, where Peter declared Jesus to be “Messiah.” Finally, climb into the heights of Mount Hermon, a snowy peak that marks the highest spot in all the Heartland. From a castle built in the crusader period, take in a view to the region where Jesus was transfigured. Dinner and overnight in Tiberias.

Day 7 Nov 13 (Sun): Sepphoris, Nazareth, Annunciation Church, Cana

Spend a day in the rolling hills of Galilee visiting sites and people linked to the Christian movement. Visit Sepphoris, an opulent Galilean capital from the Roman and Byzantine Periods. Continue to Nazareth. In the afternoon, walk through the Church of the Annunciation, a structure built over the traditional home of Jesus. Dinner and evening worship with the Cana Church. Overnight in Tiberias.

Day 8 Nov 14 (Mon): Samaria, Nablus, Jordan River, Jericho

Transition from the northern reaches of the country to the south by means of the middle. Climb into the rugged center of the land, stopping at the sites of Samaria and Jacob’s Well. Continue to the Jordan Valley for a personal experience with the Jordan River at Qasr Yehud. Finally, explore the ruins at Jericho, where the walls came a ‘tumblin’ down. Dinner and overnight in Beit Jala.

Day 9 Nov 15 (Tues): Bethlehem, Shepherds’ Field, Nativity Church, Bethlehem Bible College

Climb through the rugged wilderness of Judea, arriving at the Shepherds’ Field outside of Bethlehem. Here, the Good News was first heard. Continue to Bethlehem and experience the place where the Christian story begins: the Church of the Nativity. Visit with friends and learn about the ministry of Bethlehem Bible College. Dinner and overnight in Beit Jala.

Day 10 Nov 16 (Wed): Mount of Olives, Via Dolorosa, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem’s Old City

Begin this day on the Mount of Olives with a view to the Old City of Jerusalem, Walk down the Palm Sunday Road to the Garden of Gethsemane. Enter the Old City and walk the path of the Via Dolorosa. Along the way, visit the Pool of Bethesda, the Church of St. Anne and Ecce Homo. Finally, visit the site dubbed the most sacred in all Christianity: the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Here, the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus are celebrated. Return to Beit Jala for dinner and overnight.

Day 11 Nov 17 (Thurs): Temple Mount, Western Wall, Davidson Center, City of David

Step back on this last day and consider the roots of Jerusalem as a sacred city to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Walk on the Temple Mount, where Solomon’s glorious temple once stood and Muslims continue to pray today. Experience the Western Wall, a place of meditation and celebration. Go underground and witness Jerusalem’s earliest remains, including a Canaanite wall, the possible site of David’s palace, and a spectacular water system (conditions permitting) that terminates in the Pool of Siloam. Return to the hotel for your evening meal, packing, and transfer to the airport for an overnight flight to the USA.

Day 12 Nov 18 (Fri)

Arrive in the USA and return home with a lifetime of memories.
