Walking with the Sage from Galilee
March 6-17, 2024
Join us for the adventure of a lifetime!
From the Sea of Galilee to the Judean
Wilderness, read the stories of the Bible in their original context.
Visit where the tribe of Dan (Joshua 9) once lived and the caves of En Gedi where, future king, David hid from Saul (1 Samuel 24). Consider Jesus' message in the cities where his ministry took place, like Capernaum, Chorazin and Bethsaida. See an authentic first century boat as your prepare for a boat ride on the sea of Galilee (Luke 8:22-25). Read the Beatitudes and open the Sermon of the Mount (Matthew 5-7) near where these teachings were given.
Walk the historical Via Dolorosa ("Way of Suffering") and get a deeper understanding of the events that took place during Jesus' last week in Jerusalem — the very events that lead to Jesus' crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection (Matthew 26:30–27:66, Mark 14:26–15:47, Luke 22:39–23:5).
