Description

Day1 Arrival – Welcome to Israel Welcome to Israel for your Holy Land Tour. The driver will take you to your hotel. Day2 Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Starting in Jerusalem's Old City at Mount Scopus, historically a Jewish cemetery and a Christian place of worship due to its connection to Jesus and Mary. The view reveals the Old City and the Dome of the Rock, built on the site of Herod's Temple, later destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD. Exploring the Old City leads to the Zion Gate, the ancient Byzantine Cardo, and the Western Wall, a holy site for Jewish prayers since 70 BC. Continuing to the Via Dolorosa and finishing in the Holy Sepulchre Church. Bethlehem is the birthplace of Jesus. From Manger Square, we will enter the Church of the Nativity, the oldest site in continuous use as a place of Christian worship opened in the year 333. Below the chapel is the Grotto of the Nativity where you’ll see an altar in remembrance of the three wise men, and a fourteen-point star set into the floor which signifies the exact spot where Jesus was born. Following the departure of the Crusaders the Church of the Nativity came under neglect for centuries as well as suffering damage from earthquakes and fire. Today the church and surrounding sites have been restored. Adjacent to this site is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, as well as the Church of St. Catherine, which sits atop another important historic site in Christianity. Below the Church of St Catherine, there is a complex of caves where Saint Jerome translated the Hebrew Bible into Latin named The Vulgate. We visit the Shepherd’s field and reflect back to the story where an angel appeared before shepherds with their sheep in this field (Luke 2:8-11). Next a visit to the contemporary Church of the Angels where we can view panels with stories of Jesus’s childhood days. Returning to Jerusalem we pass by the field of Ruth. Ruth was King David’s great-grandmother who worked in the fields of Boaz. (Ruth 2:1) Day3 Masada and the Dead Sea Reach the Dead Sea, known for its high salt content, continuing to Masada. Instead of the ancient Snake Path, take the cable car to Herod's mountain fortress. Witness the site of a Roman siege ending in a tragic Jewish mass suicide. Return to the Dead Sea. Conclude at the Dead Sea, a therapeutic wonder due to its salt-rich waters, offering a unique floating experience known worldwide for its mineral-rich properties. Day4 Nazareth Sea of Galilee and the Jordan River Yardenit Baptismal site As we enter Nazareth we take a visit to the Church of the Annunciation. Next to this church is the Church of Saint Joseph. Departing from Nazareth we arrive at the Sea of Galilee. Approaching the Mount of Beatitudes we come to Capernaum. We will visit the Church of the Multiplication. Then we will come to the baptismal site of the Jordan River Day5 Departure.
