Continue to Ginosar to visit the ancient Fisherman Boat at the Igal Alon Museum, followed by a relaxing cruise on the Sea of Galilee. A brief scripture reading and devotional on board brings to life the experiences of Jesus and the fishermen disciples. Next we will  visit  Magdala, home town of Mary Magdalene. The recent excavation of the First Century Synagogue and well preserved village makes Magdala one of the most interesting Biblical sites in Israel. Our final stop of the day will be to Capernaum we view the excavations of the sea-side village and Peter's home. Return to our kibbutz for dinner and overnight.

We begin our day with the opportunity to be baptized at the Jordan River Baptismal site of the Yardenit. Following the fertile Jordan Valley southward, your guide will point out the agricultural restoration of the “Land of Milk and Honey” and Israel's intricate irrigation development. We pass ancient Jericho and view from a distance this city famed as the oldest in the world. To the east of Jericho along the Jordan River Valley (Queser El Yehud) is the Israeli side of Bethany Beyond the Jordan. In this area Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, Elijah and Elisha crossed the Jordan, as well as where the children of Israel, led by Joshua, entered the Promised Land. Driving south we arrive to the lowest point on Earth “The Dead Sea”. Drive to Ein Gedi, "Spring of the Goat", an oasis on the western shore of the Dead Sea. Because of its warm climate and abundant supply of water, the site developed a reputation for its fragrant plants and date palm groves. This is where King David hid from Saul, and where God defeated the enemies of the Israelites by praise and worship led by King Jehoshaphat. Time to make our way to our hotel. As this is the Jewish Shabbat -Saturday evening, we will not be able to receive our rooms until after the Jewish Shabbat is over. Since we all packed our swim suits in our hand luggage, we will make our way to the hotel spa where there are lockers and towels and we can enjoy our time before dinner at the Spa & beach.

Walk to the Garden of Gethsemane where we will have time to read the scriptures of Jesus' prayer and time for personal reflection is important here. Passing by the Protestant Cemetery we make our way for a visit to the House of Caiaphas where Jesus was beaten and spit upon. See a pit where he may have been held for the evening and the ancient hillside steps he walked as he was taken to be condemned we visit the "Upper Room" just outside the Zion Gate where the disciple whom Jesus loved laid his head on His breast and where later Thomas cried, "my Lord & my God." Stop at the Tomb of King David before making your way to walk along the Via Dolorosa. Stop at the Stations of the Cross as we are reminded of His way of suffering as we make a way and stop for a  visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. We will now walk through the Arab Market and make our way to the Jaffa Gate.

Day 8 - Tuesday, May 21, 2019
An early breakfast as we make our way to the Old City entering via the Dung Gate. We will make our way to the Temple Mount (please no bibles).  Next we will visit the Western Wall and then the fascinating Rabbinical Tunnels leading us through the Second Temple era. The tunnel and exhibit give a clear understanding of the amazing construction of the Temple Mount, giant stones, water supply and Roman street where our Lord was led to judgment. Before exiting the tunnel we see the immense cornerstone rejected by the builders. We move on to the Judgment Hall of Pilate, hear of those who conspired against Him and are reminded of His brutal beating and humiliation. From here we will also be able to see the Pool of Bethesda, Stephen's Gate and St. Ann's Church. This afternoon we visit 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. Return to your hotel for dinner and overnight.
Overnight: Jerusalem, Israel
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 9 - Wednesday, May 22, 2019

It was during the time of Solomon that the city limits extended past this part of Jerusalem. We visit Gihon Springs, the original water source for Jerusalem, view new excavations including a typical Israelite four-room house, and the lower city wall. A highlight today will be a water walk through the incredible Hezekiah's Tunnel to the pool of Siloam, the place of Jesus' miracle in John 9. Ascending up to the Jewish Quarter we see the gold Menorah built for the next Temple, the Temple Institute, the Burnt House, a wall built by King Hezekiah, and the Roman Cardo.

Our next stop of the day will be Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum, for a needed reminder of what the Jews have suffered as a people. The climax of the day is the area of Golgotha (place of the skull) and the Garden Tomb, where we celebrate the resurrection with communion and a time of praise. Return to our hotel for our final dinner together.
