TOUR OVERVIEW:

Place a deposit for this Biblical tour by December 31, 2018, and you will earn a personal tour with Joseph and Elizabeth Farah escorted by Eli Shukron to the mysterious standing stone of Melchizedek – “Temple Zero.” 

You will embark on this private tour the day you visit the City of David. The tour price starts at $4,899 (sharing a double) with an optional add-on from New York’s JFK of $1,350.00 per person.

Join Joseph and Elizabeth Farah on a Mediterranean cruise that is sure to enhance your experience of The Word – who was made flesh and dwells among us. Joseph has an exciting new book that unveils Christ in every segment of the Old Testaments. The release of his stimulating new text coupled with the leisurely pace of a cruise into Israel will help us to examine the gospel as we explore new Biblical sites and enjoy our time of fellowship together.

In addition to Joseph and Elizabeth, you will be joined, on-site in Israel, by Dr. Craig A. Evans, a well-known scholar on the life of Christ, at a Galilean synagogue where Jesus Himself taught. You will visit the place where the Dead Sea scrolls were found and have the curator himself, Dr. Adolfo O. Roitman, to offer expert insights. Finally, you will be with Jerusalem’s premier archaeologist at the City of David – Eli Shukron. If you book prior to December 31, 2018, Shukron will take you on a private visit to reveal an amazing new site he calls “Temple Zero.”

I loved it!  It truly was the adventure of a lifetime.  My son had a wonderful experience, too.  Thank you for making the trip kid-friendly!

Loretta & Jacob S.

Everything was wonderful, and first class. Hotels and ship were top of the line. Our Greek Orthodox guide, Sayat was fantastic. So much knowledge and history and enthusiasm! Pastor Lutzer’s teachings were much enjoyed and enlightening. Rebecca is a sweetheart.

I enjoyed this tour so much, that I’d like to do it again sometime, maybe in the Spring season. PS…our group enjoyed each others’ company so much that we are having a reunion party coming up on Monday the 21st!

Monica H.

To see Biblical sites in which Paul ministered as well as see sites of some of the churches of Revelation was an opportunity of a lifetime. The Bible teaching was absolutely outstanding. Of course, being on a sailing ship was delightful as well. I highly recommend a Footsteps of Paul.

OUR ASSURANCE:

1. Through the use of The Word, we trust that once…

Through the use of The Word, we trust that once you have returned from our Christian tours, you will have gained a deeper knowledge of the scriptures and the multiple layers of teaching and truths that are inside each.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

2. You can be assured an experience like our previous participants…

You can be assured an experience like our previous participants, who have gained an appreciation of how God uses everything for His glory and for the purpose of furthering knowledge and understanding. You will see this as you encounter the geology of the land, the geography where events actually occurred and the archaeology that may (or may not!) still exist. Furthermore, through the remaining people in the land, the practices still in place and demography that have endured.

Colossians 1:20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

3. Further, our assurance is received that through The Word…

Further, our assurance is received that through The Word; the teachings you will be exposed will solidify the truth which you and your family have been taught by seeing, touching and hearing the scriptures each day. We assert and firmly believe Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

4. You and your family will experience…

You and your family will experience the oneness of the body of Christ during our trip.
