TOUR OVERVIEW:

Pastor Bryan Parish of Mission Calvary has created an incredible teaching itinerary exploring the most authentic Biblical sites in Israel!

Explore the Holy Land’s most authentic destinations and unique locations on a Biblical tour of Israel led by Pastor Bryan Parish of Mission Calvary in 2020! Is 2020 the year to deepen your understanding of both the New and Old Testaments? If so, this is the trip for you! These sites and hotels have been selected exclusively for you, at just the right time on God’s prophetic calendar.


Israel 2020 Tour

Not only will you visit the celebrated traditional sites of the Galilee, Jerusalem, Nazareth, Masada, Bethlehem, the Dead Sea, and Golan, but Pastor Bryan has added what we consider to be the best teaching sites in the Holy Land! Few travelers have a chance to visit the original temple site at Shechem – positioned starkly between the Mountains of Blessings and Curses in Samaria. You will also visit Shiloh, participate in a dig of King Solomon’s stable (which was found next to Temple Mount). See the newly discovered Pilgrim’s Path – an underground route that connects the City of David to the Temple Mount. You will stand at Quneitra and look at the city of Damascus in the distance! On top of that, you will see Bethel (House of God), Gibeon, Jacob’s Well, and so much more. Your hotels have been hand-selected – staying inside the Old City Walls, right at the shore of the Sea of Galilee, and enjoying two full nights on the Dead Sea!


The Israel tour starts at $3,439 per person including airfare, most meals, private bus and guides, authentic locations, and all entrance fees; not to mention private teachings and special moments that only Pastor Bryan can deliver! Prices stated are based on double occupancy. If you are traveling alone we can help match you with a roommate (if available) or you can pay a supplement for a private room.

The city, now vacated, is also along the shore of the lake where Jesus performed many of His miracles. Next, we visit the Mount of Beatitudes for a teaching.

As we drive toward the Golan Heights, we will pass Mount Hermon. It is here that the fallen angels were cast down from heaven. Time permitting, we may have an opportunity to take an optional tethered balloon trip that flies high enough to see a commanding view of Hermon and the Hula Valley. We visit a Druze village for an early lunch. The Druze are a people group who honor Jethro, the father-in-law of Moses. Next, we visit Tel Dan and see the gate of Abraham and the impressive altar. From the side of this altar we will be able to see into Syria. Nearby, we have a chance to see Caesarea Philippi. It is here that Peter exclaimed, “You are the Christ!” Finally, we will see the contested area of the Golan and the remains of war at Quneitra. Return to our beautiful hotel for dinner.

It is also the site where we will be able to look over the entire Plain of Megiddo and onto Nazareth. We have an appointment in Nazareth, at a precious teaching site, where we will see the mysteries of the Torah come alive through the daily life of the Jews during the time of Jesus.

If the Samaritan Priest is in residence, you may have an opportunity to learn more about the Samaritans. Lunch in Samaria. Before departing Shechem, we will visit Jacob’s Well. We will stop at Bethel, the House of God, and walk the grounds of Gibeon. Next stop – the city of Our God! Jerusalem! Coming down the hill we will see her. Arrive at your hotel, which is in the best location of all Israel! Right at Jaffa Gate. The Gloria Hotel is made of limestone with carpets and fixtures right out of Turkish rule.

We will also stand in front of the Eastern (or Golden) Gate and have a teaching of its prophetic importance. Walk past Antonio Fortress, learn of its history in the time of Christ, and enter the Pools of Bethesda. It is here where Jesus healed the paralytic. Enjoy a lunch break in the Old City. This afternoon, we will visit the fresh discoveries of the City of David, including the Pilgrims Path and the Pool of Siloam.

Walk down Palm Sunday Road where they cried out “Hosanna, Hosanna!” We will walk through the precious Garden of Gethsemane for a time of reflection. Near the Road to Bethany we will join a live dig. Learn how the archaeologists have discovered the truth among dirt and stones for yourself! This particular dig is dirt that came from King Solomon’s Stables adjacent to Temple Mount. We leave the city and stop for lunch on your own at a Bedouin tented barbeque lunch area. Next, we visit a site where we can go into a cave very much like the cave where Mary and Joseph kept Jesus safe. We will drive up the Mount of Herodium in order to see the expansive Shepherds Hills of Bethlehem. We depart and skirt the Dead Sea until we arrive at Qumran. A guide will take you through and teach you about the archaeology of the Essene community that stands at the base of the mountain where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.

Return to the Dead Sea area where there is plenty of shops and a time to grab lunch. Free afternoon to unwind in the pools. Dinner together this evening. Those going home in the morning will leave the hotel very early in the morning – so those going on to Jordan will need to say goodbye to everyone tonight.
