Day 4 July 11 – Qasr el Yehud, Jericho, Qumran & the Dead Sea
Begin the day at the baptismal site of Qasr el Yehud, where tradition says Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. The church, which was constructed on the site, is the world’s oldest functioning church. Travel to Jericho and visit the ruins of the ancient city, which was conquered by Joshua (Josh. 6:1, 2, 20). From Jericho, you can see the traditional site of the Temptation of Jesus (Matt. 4: 1-11). Visit Qumran, the site of the Dead Sea Scroll discovery, to learn about the mysterious community of the Essenes who once lived on the shores of the Dead Sea. Visit the shores of the Dead Sea, where those who wish may float in the mineral-laden waters.
Day 5 July 12 – The Galilee
Pass through the Valley of the Doves on your way towards the Sea of Galilee. This was a major pathway in the time of Christ, and He and his disciples passed through this valley as they walked the Galilee. In Magdala, once home to Mary Magdalene, visit a recently discovered first-century synagogue. Cross the waters of the Sea of Galilee on a very special boat ride, complete with an onboard worship service. Visit Capernaum, center of Jesus’ ministry in the Galilee, and visit the synagogue built on the site where Jesus taught(Matt. 4:13, 23). On the Mount of Beatitudes, contemplate the “Sermon on the Mount” (Matt. 5-7).
Day 6 July 13 – Jerusalem
Stand on the Mount of Olives for a remarkable view of Jerusalem (the Golden City); Jesus stood here before ascending into heaven forty days after His resurrection (Acts 1:9-12). In the Kidron Valley across from the walls of Jerusalem, pray as Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane (Matt. 26:36). Continue to Mount Zion to visit the House of the High Priest Caiaphas, where Jesus was questioned the night of His betrayal (Matt. 26:57). Recall the events of the Last Supper as you visit the traditional location of the Upper Room (Mark 14:12). Spend time in prayer at the Western Wall (the only remnant of the Second Temple of Jerusalem) and sit on the Teaching Steps where Jesus taught.
Day 7 July 14 – The Way of the Cross
Conditions permitting, walk the Temple Mount, once the site of the Temple of Solomon and home to the Dome of the Rock. See where Jesus healed on the Sabbath at the Pool of Bethesda (John 5: 1-31). Walk the Via Dolorosa(“the Way of the Cross”) to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built over the traditional sites of the crucifixion and burial of Jesus. At the Garden Tomb and experience the reality of the Resurrection. **To take our group transfer tonight, your flight needs to be departing between 11:00 PM on 7/14 and 2:00 AM on 7/15
