A Journey to Egypt & Jordan

We want to invite you on an unforgettable journey in the footsteps of Moses, Joshua, and the Pharaohs, 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. We’ll start in Egypt with a visit to the Pyramids, Sphinx, and Egyptian Museum - just to name a few! Then we’ll head to Jordan, where we’ll get to explore one of the Seven Wonders of the World at Petra, as well as Madaba and Mount Nebo. Imagine getting the same view of Israel as Moses would have had! When you make this journey in the company of friends and others of like mind, you can look forward to an unforgettable experience.

You can read your way through the Old Testament, or you can bring it to life with an all-inclusive trip to where it all took place. At the end of this tour, two things will most certainly be changed: you, and your understanding of the Bible.

Sincerely,
Maranatha Tours Inc.

    Cairo

    Upon arrival in Cairo we meet our guide and travel to our hotel, where we enjoy dinner and retire for our first night in Egypt. Tomorrow is a big day – we’re about to tour a land mentioned in the earliest of biblical history and in the early years of the life of our Lord (Genesis 12:1, 37:28; Exodus 4:19; Matthew 2:15)!

  • 3
    Egyptian Museum
    Saturday
    Pyramids / Egyptian Museum

    After breakfast, we begin our tour by visiting the Pyramids of Giza, built in the 3rd dynasty in approximately 2690 BC. The Great Pyramid is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the most intact. In front of the Pyramids we find the Sphinx; carved from a single piece of stone, this colossal creature incorporates a lion with a pharaoh’s head, thought to be a portrait of the Pharaoh Chephren. We also enjoy a camel ride before visiting the Papyrus Institute.

    In the afternoon we visit the famous Egyptian Museum and its many antiquities from Egypt’s Pharaonic Era, dating back some 50 centuries and including the fabulous treasures of King Tutankhamen. We then return to our hotel for dinner.

    Sunday
    Cairo / Sinai Peninsula / Mount Sinai

    Starting early from Cairo, we drive towards Sinai, crossing over the Suez Canal. We travel through the Sinai Peninsula, enjoying the desert landscape and remembering the story of the delivery of the Israelites from the pharaoh of Egypt (Exodus 7-16). We pass through the regions of the bitter water (Marah) and where God miraculously provided manna and quail (Exodus 15:22-25; 16:1-36). From here we head straight to Saint Catherine’s Monastery and the traditional site of Mount Sinai (Exodus 19:16-20). We then check into our hotel for dinner and overnight.

  • 5
    Monday
    Mount Sinai / Saint Catherine’s / Tabah / Petra

    This morning, those who choose to do so may brave the early-morning ascent to the top of Mount Sinai (Exodus 19-20). This path of Moses has been a common trail for pilgrims for many centuries. Reaching the summit just before dawn, climbers will witness its incredible sunrise and splendid views. At the peak of Mount Sinai we consider the story of Moses’s encounter with God, when the great prophet received the two tablets bearing the Ten Commandments. We then descend the mount and return to the hotel to rejoin the rest of the group for breakfast. We spend the later part of the morning touring Saint Catherine’s Monastery, the world’s oldest continuously inhabited Christian monastery built between 548 and 565 AD. We take in the monastery’s fascinating sights and exceptional history, including the Burning Bush and the Chamber of the Skulls (Exodus 3:1-14).

    After lunch we board our bus and head toward the eastern shores of the Sinai Peninsula on the Red Sea to Tabah. From here we cross into Israel and make our way to the Jordanian border. In Jordan we meet our next guide and travel north to the Nabtean city of Petra (Isaiah 16:1; 2 Kings 14:7), where we check into our hotel for dinner and overnight.

    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 then return to our hotel for dinner and overnight.

    Wednesday
    Madaba / Mount Nebo / Bethany / Amman

    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 continue on to Amman, the capital of Jordan and home of the ancient Ammonites (Genesis 19:37-38), where we check in to our hotel for dinner and overnight.

    Thursday
    Amman / USA

    This morning we begin our journey home, rejoicing in our unforgettable experiences in Egypt and Jordan. Our hearts are full; we walked in the lands of the Bible, and we will never be the same (Numbers 6:24–26).
