TOUR OVERVIEW:

You are invited to join top Biblical scholars as they examine the sights and impressive artifacts on a Biblical tour of Israel, focusing on both the Old and the New Testaments. You will have an opportunity to learn on-site from Dr. Craig A. Evans, a well-known scholar on the life of Christ, at the remote Golan and Galilean synagogues, where Jesus Himself taught. You will visit the place where the Dead Sea scrolls were found and have the curator himself, Dr. Adolfo Roitman, offer expert insights over dinner at the beautiful Jerusalem Waldorf Astoria. You will also be with Jerusalem’s premier archaeologist, Eli Shukron, in Israel, where he will explain the most important aspects of Biblical archaeology. In addition, during our stay in Galilee, we will get to stay at the all new boutique Sea of Galilee Hotel.

To top it off, Jerry Jenkins, bestselling author of the phenomenal Left Behind series, will join us in Israel. Dr. Evans and Jerry Jenkins will showcase their first novel in the new archaeology mystery series, Dead Sea Rising. There will be book-signings, Q&A, and the opportunity to suggest to the authors your ideas for future novels in the series.  This will be combined with both fellowship and compelling intrigue, under pastoral direction, surrounding Biblical truths.

Those joining us for the Rome trip extension will get to experience a stay at the luxurious Quirinale Hotel, set right in the middle of Rome’s Historic district .
