Journey to Jerusalem
Through visiting significant biblical and historical sites and meeting with Israeli and Palestinian people, participants focus on the geography and archaeology of the region, the history of the land and its peoples, and current religious and political conflicts in the Middle East.
The group will stay in hotels, kibbutzim, at Bethlehem Bible College and in Palestinian homes. Interesting side activities will involve walking the Old City Jerusalem streets where Jesus walked, floating in the Dead Sea, riding a cable car to the top of Masada, and eating St. Peter's fish at the Sea of Galilee. After seeing many of the significant sites mentioned in the Bible, the Scriptures will come alive to the participants in new and meaningful ways.
