We will start our day with a memorable boat ride across the Sea of Galilee. While cruising, we'll pause for a great praise and worship service right on the Sea of Galilee. We are sure to remember the many miracles our Lord performed in this area. "and Jesus went all about the Galilee, teaching in their synagogue, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sicknesses and all manner of diseases among the people" (Mat. 4:23) After docking at Nof Ginosar, biblical Genesseret, we will visit the Primacy of Peter to see the area where Jesus asked Peter, “Lovest thou me?”. Then we'll proceed to Capernaum to see the remains of an early church, the remnants of Peter's house, and the ancient synagogue.

Early morning, we will travel a short distance to the Shrine of the Book where the Dead Sea Scrolls are kept and the model of Jerusalem from the time of Jesus - what a great spot to get oriented with what is about to unfold.  We will continue our tour to the outskirts of Jerusalem and visit the beautiful village of Ein Karem (Arabic for the spring of vineyard) is a picturesque village located approximately 8 km southwest of Jerusalem. It is indirectly mentioned in the bible as home of Zacharia and his wife Elizabeth, and the birthplace of their son John the Baptist. Mary visited Ein Karem on the way to Bethlehem during her pregnancy, met her kinswoman Elizabeth, and stayed with her for 3 months following the visitation by the angel Gabriel in which he announced the future birth of Jesus "Elizabeth spoke out with a loud voice and said: Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me that the mother of my Lord come to me" (Luke 1:42) In the afternoon we will visit Bethlehem touring the Church of the Nativity built over the birthplace of Jesus and view the Shepherds fields and the fields of Boaz. Return to your hotel. Dinner and overnight.

Today we will travel the Jordan Valley and will visit the Dead Sea area where Jesus spent time in solitude and the place of John the Baptist ministry. It is the deepest spot on earth, 1200 feet below sea level. We will visit Qumran where many of the Dead Sea Scrolls were found and the surrounding wilderness where Jesus roamed for 40 days. We will experience Masada atop the mountain overlooking the sea below. Masada was the last pocket of insurrection in the Jewish rebellion against the Roman Empire where 960 men, women and children defied the might of Rome and fought for three years after the destruction of Jerusalem. We will visit King Herod's Palace, the synagogue, and a very sophisticated water and irrigation systems 2000 years old.

Today we will visit the old city, the Western Wall and ascend to   the Temple Mount - Mt. Moriah where Abraham was to sacrifice Isaac. See the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque that now stand there. From here we will trace the footsteps of Jesus, visiting on the way, the Pool of Bethesda, Stephen's Gate and St. Ann's Church and on to the Via Dolorosa, the way of the agony and the Stations of the Cross. We are reminded of His way of suffering along with a visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.  Our guide will explain the differing opinions on the route that Christ was led. The actual place of crucifixion and burial is a very interesting study. This afternoon we visit the reconstructed Jewish Quarter, walk through the Cardo, the original Roman street and see the amazing remains of the massive wall built by King Hezekiah. We will also tour the Southern Wall Excavations. This southern side of The Temple was the main entrance for the common folk, whereas the Priests and Levites had their own entrance from the higher eastern side. Parts of the giant stairs, which led to the Temple Mount from the courtyard have been unearthed along with the purification pools. From here Jesus entered the Temple Mount and drove out the vendors and money exchangers who were exploiting the people. It is also likely that this is the place that Peter stood and preached and where thousands were saved and baptized on the Day of Pentecost.  Finish our day with a tour of the Underground Rabbinical Tunnel. Our evening program is with our Israel ministry.
Overnight: Jerusalem, Israel
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

This morning we will visit the Israeli Knesset - Parliament and hear about their form of  democracy which is very different from ours. Where we have 2 major parties and a few smaller ones, they have 34 parties. Some years more and some years less. From here we will make our way to Yad Va'Shem, a museum built in memory of the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis in World War II and also a commemoration the righteous gentiles who by risking their own lives, rescued Jews from certain death. Two thousand and five hundred years ago, as Jerusalem was rebuilt by those who returned from exile, Nehemiah said: "From that day on, half of my men did the work, while the other half was equipped with spears, shields, bows and armor. The officers posted themselves behind all the people of Judah who were building the wall. Those who carried materials did their work with one hand and held a weapon in the other, and each of the builders wore his sword at his side as he worked." (Nehemiah 4:16-19) In accordance with biblical prophesies, Israel was reborn and just as in the days of Nehemiah, since her rebirth in 1948, Israel is in a continuous struggle for survival.  More now, than ever before, Jewish soldiers, young Israeli, boys and girls, the "Shields of David are the defenders of God's Land. To honor them, our special program today is in Latrun - the official Israel Defense Force Commemoration Center and armament display.  Latrun is the fortress that was strategically built on Israel's main crossroads and throughout history protected the Holy City of Jerusalem.  The program here will feature a full army ceremony including laying a wreath at the "Wall of Names" in honor of the fallen soldiers we pay tribute to the living. Here we will mingle with the young soldiers; we will be briefed by experts to give us the opportunity to gain a better understanding and insight into the region's conflict, based on biblical prophecies to officials and government representatives.  We will pray for them. What a place to pledge our support and solidarity with their/our Godly plight.   Our last stop in the Holy Land will be the Garden Tomb .A special time is planned for worship & communion. Closing program and farewell dinner
