It is a once-in-a-lifetime visit to the very heart of Western Civilazation, the kind of trip that will become part of you for the rest of your life.
We would be acquainted with the Historical Judeo-Christian Relations, and (for some) surprisingly, understand why visiting Holy Christian Sites is an excellent way to know about Ancient Judaism, whereas understanding the roots of Judaism makes Christians understand both the Old & New Testament much better.
Its time to start getting excited just by hearing the names of the places you are about to visit:
In the Galilee region, for example, you would visit Jesus' boyhood town, Nazareth, and the place where he did most of his ministry, Capernaum. thats where he walked on water, calmed a storm and fed thousands of people, amongst other miracles he performed in this area. the nearby Mount of Beatitudes is known as the place of the famous Sermon on the Mount, and an ancient 2000-year old Jewish ancient Galilee boat found only in 1992 will surely revive the Bible.
A taste of the Golan Heights is given, including the beautiful Mount Bental and one of the most important places in Christiandom, Ceasarea Philipii, known as where Jesus told Peter: "Upon this rock i will build my Church"
More New Testament sites such as Magdala (Mary the Magdalene) will be visited, but Old Testament sites will not be skipped - this will include, amongst others, Biblical Dan, Mount Gilboa And Meggido (Armaggedon).
In Jerusalem, we would follow Jesus' final moments by visiting the Mount of Olives, the Garden of Gethsemani, Caipha's Hourse, The Old City and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, The Israel Museum with the famous Shrine of the Book (exhibiting the Dead Sea Scrolls), and so much more!
Around Jerusalem a must is a day-tour to the Baptismal site on the River Jordan, Qumeran (where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found) and the World-famous Massada. More Bible-related day tours are within a stone's throw, such as BethLehem, Jericho and Bethany.
Elsewhere, the 4000-year old city of Jaffa is beautiful, and a visit to one of the top archaeological sites anywhere in Israel, Ceasarea, is a must. Going to the top of Mount Carmel with its gorgeous views and Biblical Geography laid in front of you will definitely make you understand even more how special and beautiful the Holy Land is!
