Next, we will stop where Jesus asked Peter, “Do you love me?” This is also near the spot where Jesus fed the 5000. We then travel to Beit She’an at the foot of Mt. Gilboa where King Saul was slain.

We will then stop at Caesarea Philippi where Peter made his great profession of faith. We will proceed to the Golan plateau to catch a magnificent view of Israel.

We will depart Jerusalem to visit Masada. We will ride the cable car to the top to visit King Herod’s Palace, fortification and water system. It was at Masada where Israeli zealots held out against Roman forces only to commit suicide rather than be enslaved. Then, we will stop at Ein Gedi and the Qumran caves, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. From there, we will visit the Dead Sea which is the lowest spot on earth and the densest body of water in the world.
