Following in the Footsteps of Jesus: Israel and Jordan

Follow in the footsteps of Jesus during the day and learn more about Jesus during evening study sessions!

Travel to New Testament sites connected with Jesus’ life: 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 viewed the promised land before his death; 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 New Testament.
