A Journey to Israel & Jordan

We want to invite you on an unforgettable journey into the Holy Land and beyond, filled with ancient biblical history, culture, and spiritual blessings. We’ll visit places that witnessed events of decisive and enduring importance in the history of humanity.

This journey will provide you a deeper understanding of the scriptures as you travel through the lands of the Bible. You’ll get a closer look at the life of Jesus Christ and His mission of redemption. When you make this journey in the company of friends and others of like mind, you can look forward to an unforgettable experience.

We’ll begin the tour in Jordan with a visit to Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Imagine standing atop Mount Nebo and having the same view of Israel Moses would have! Then in Israel, picture yourself sailing in a boat like the disciples on the Sea of Galilee (“And Jesus said to them, follow me and I will make you become fishers of men” Mark 1:17), floating in the Dead Sea, seeing our Lord Jesus’ birth place in Bethlehem, walking the streets of Jerusalem, and having communion at the empty tomb where Jesus rose from the dead (“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay” Matthew 26:6).

At the end of this tour, two things will most certainly be changed: you, and your understanding of the Bible.

Sincerely,
Maranatha Tours Inc.

    Petra
    Tuesday
    Petra

    Today we explore Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, in the heart of the rose red Mount Seir (Genesis 36:9). This mountain range houses the Aaron Peak, the highest locality in Petra and the burial place of Aaron, brother of Moses (Numbers 20:22-29). We enter the ancient city of Petra through the Siq, a narrow passage with a stunning view of the famous Treasury featured in the 1989 film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

    Continuing on through the outer Siq, encompassed by tombs and burial chambers, brings us to one of the largest ancient theaters in Jordan. This theater is carved into the sandstone mountains of Petra at the bottom of the High Place of Sacrifice. Many believe that sacrificial rituals were commonplace at this site. Further along our journey into Petra we see the Royal Tombs, the Urn, and Palace Tombs before we retrace our steps to the entrance. We reboard our motorcoach and take a panoramic ride along the outer environs of Petra, then return to our hotel for dinner and overnight.

    Wednesday
    Madaba / Mount Nebo / Bethany / Tiberias

    This morning we board our bus and drive north along the historical King’s Highway. Arriving at Madaba (Numbers 21:30 and Joshua 13:9), we view Saint George’s Church with its 6th century mosaic floor, the oldest Holy Land map know today. We continue to Mount Nebo for the same spectacular view of Israel that God gave to Moses before his death (Deuteronomy 34; Jude 1:9).

    Next we take a short drive to “Bethany Beyond the Jordan” (Matthew 3:13-17), the site of Jesus’s baptism. The Bible records Jesus’s baptism by John the Baptist (Matthew 3:13-17) at the location of where John the Baptist lived and preached baptized in the village of Bethany, on “the other side of the Jordan” (John 1:28). It is here also that after Jesus’s baptism, He spent forty days in the wilderness west of the River Jordan, fasting and resisting the temptations of Satan (Mark 1:13, Matthew 4:1-11).” Many centuries earlier, in this same location, we find historical accounts of Joshua (Joshua 3), Elijah, and Elisha (2 Kings 2:6-8; 13-15). We travel north to the Sheik Hussein border, where we cross into Israel and continue to the famous Sea of Galilee (Matthew 4:18-10; Mark 7:31-32). Here in the ancient city of Tiberias (John 21:1-3) we check into our hotel for dinner and overnight.

  • 5
    Sea of Galilee
    Thursday
    Sea of Galilee / Beit She’an / Jordan River

    This morning we sail on a replica wooden boat from Jesus’s day and float where Jesus walked (Matthew 14:22-33)! We also have a chance see the New Testament boat found below the sea. We then proceed on land to view many biblical sites, including the ancient city of Capernaum (Matthew 9:1). We walk the shore of Tabgha (John 21:4-17) and we read the Sermon on the Mount...on the mount itself (Matthew 5-7)!

    In the afternoon, we travel south from the Sea of Galilee along an often traveled route for Jesus until we arrive at Beit She’an. Here we see evidence of Egyptian, Roman, and Byzantine occupations, as well as ancient architecture and church mosaics. From here, time permitting, we may walk up to the top of Mount Gilboa, where King Saul and his two sons were slain (1 Samuel 31:10-13). Our final stop for the day is the River Jordan (Joshua 3:15-17; 2 Kings 5:10-14), where travelers with a pastor may be baptized in a similar fashion as Jesus was to begin His ministry (Matthew 3:13-17). We then return to the hotel for dinner and overnight.

  • 6
    Caesarea Maritima
    Friday
    Nazareth / Caesarea Maritima / Jerusalem

    This morning we depart westward from the region of the Sea of Galilee and travel through Cana of Galilee, where Jesus performed His first miracle (John 2:1). We continue to Jesus’s childhood town of Nazareth (Luke 1:26-27) and ascend Mount Precipice (Luke 4:29-30) for a panoramic view of the famed Jezreel Valley. We also visit the Mount of Megiddo, where 34 battles have been fought over 4,000 years, with the great final battle yet to come: the battle of Armageddon (Revelation 16:16). From there we travel to Mount Carmel, site of Elijah’s confrontation with the prophets of Baal (1 Kings 18).

    Our day is capped off with a tour of the Mediterranean coast city of Caesarea Maritima and the great Roman Aqueduct from 10 BC (Acts 25:11-14, 23). After our visit to this ancient harbor, we travel up the historic Beth Horon road (Joshua 10:10) to the Benjamin Plateau, passing ancient Gibeon (Joshua 9) and continuing on to Jerusalem (Isaiah 62:1-2). Finally, atop Mount Scopus, we behold majestic Jerusalem. We then check in to our hotel for dinner and overnight.

  • 7
    Dead Sea
    Saturday
    Masada / Dead Sea / Jericho

    After breakfast we drive along the Dead Sea and ascend to the ancient fortress of Masada. It is here where Jewish defenders in the first century AD made their last stand in the Judean revolt against Rome. We see the remains of storehouses, cisterns, and a sixth-century Byzantine church. We follow the coast of the Dead Sea, the lowest point in the world at 1,300 feet below sea level. Time permitting, we’ll proceed to the pleasant walking trail of Ein Gedi, where David found refreshment during his escape from King Saul (1 Samuel 24:1-12; Psalm 63).

    Our tour continues to the Qumran Caves where the Dead Sea scrolls were found, the most significant archeological discovery of the 20th century. After lunch we have the opportunity to relax and float in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea. Next we travel to Jericho, the world’s oldest city (Joshua 6; Matthew 20:29-34). From the excavated tel atop the ruins of ancient Jericho we view the lush green Jordan Valley, Elisha’s Spring, and Qarantal, the traditional Mount of Temptation (Matthew 4:1-11). We drive back to our hotel for dinner and overnight.

    Sunday
    Mt. of Olives, Passion Walk, Southern Wall, Herodium, Solomon's Pools, Bethlehem

    “If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace” (Luke 19:42) We start the day with an orientation to Jerusalem from the Mt. of Oliveswith an opportunity of a group photograph overlooking Jerusalem. We then walk the traditional Passion walk. We descend to the church known as Dominus Flevit (“Our Lord weeps”). After viewing the Golden Gate, we walk downhill to Gethsemane,where we take time to meditate on the Gospel text. Boarding our bus (If you want you may walk by the tomb of the kings) and get off at a roman road, where we climb Mt Zion to the grounds of a church called Peter in Gallicantu, which affords the best view of early Jerusalem from the west. (Here, the Assumptions Fathers suggest, was the house where the High Priest Caiaphas interrogated Jesus.) We drive to Dung gate and enter where we will stop at the Steps that entered the temple. It was here that Jesus would have taught the disciples. See a video that shows the temple as it was at Solomon’s time.

    I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:10-11). We drive south to the region of Bethlehem, passing Rachel’s Tomb on the outskirts of Bethlehem. We drive to a hilltop for a view of Bethlehem, noting its relation to the rest of the central mountain range, including Jerusalem, as well as to the desert and the area of ancient Moab. Driving south, we visit Solomon’s Pools, Jerusalem’s main source of water for almost 2000 years. Passing the monastery of Hortus Conclusus (“the sealed garden”) in Artas, we go to Herodion, the palace set in a conical mountain built by Herod to mark his tomb which was in the news lately with the recent discovery of Herod’s Tomb. Note the juxtaposition of the two Kings of the Jews. The King Herod buried in great opulence and the King of the Jews born in a humble manger in Bethlehem sitting in the background of the Herodium. We then drive to one of the possible sites for Shepherds’ Fields. We continue into Bethlehem itself, walking through the restored old town to the Church of the Nativity and visiting the manger and see the cave of St. Jerome. We drive back to Jerusalem for dinner and overnight.

    Monday
    Old City, Temple Mount, Via Dolorosa, Garden Tomb

    “He has risen!” (Mark 16:6) After breakfast we transfer to the Dung Gate, we walk up to the Western WallJudaism’s holiest site. We ascend to the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site of Islam, located on the traditional site of the ancient Temple Mount. It is believed that here is where the Temple once stood. Just to the north we find the Pools of Bethesda (John 5) and St. Anne’s Church, the church is perfectly preserved from the Crusader period – with remarkable acoustics. We then follow the Way of the Cross (Via Dolorosa)through the bazaars to the Holy Sepulcher. From there we walk through the Christian Quarter along the Arab Souks and past the Armenian Quarter.

    This afternoon we will walk out to the Damascus Gate and go to the Garden Tomb where we will end our day with a special visit and the possibility of having a private communion on the grounds outside the city walls. Return to our hotel for dinner and overnight.
