It is an ancient city, built during the reign of Herod the Great in the late first century B.C.E., played an important role in Roman Palestine and was a major south Levantine harbor during Paul's missionary journeys. It was the home of Cornelius; the first Gentile convert and of Philip the evangelist. Caesarea was a wonder to behold with its archaeological sites which includes a large Roman amphitheater, hippodrome and aqueduct. It’s known for Caesarea National Park, which includes the historic port. On the site are the archaeological park with pillars and sculptures, and the remains of a hippodrome, with frescoes and stone seating. The ruins of the seafront Promontory Palace include the remains of a mosaic floor. 

Mt. Carmel: also known in Arabic as Mount Mar Elias, is a coastal mountain range in northern Israel stretching from the Mediterranean Sea towards the southeast. The range is a UNESCO biosphere reserve. The view of the city of Haifa and the Bahai’ Gardens are phenomenal from up the mountain.

Muraqaba at Mt Carmel:

the challenge between the Prophet Elijah and King Ahab and the prophets of Baal to see which deity could light a sacrifice by fire. After the prophets of Baal had failed, Elijah had water poured upon his sacrifice to saturate the altar. He then prayed. Fire fell and consumed the sacrifice, wood, stones, soil and water, which prompted the Israelite witnesses to proclaim, "The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God! Prophet Elijah then announced the end to a long three-year drought, which had previously been sent as divine punishment for Israel's idolatry, then Elijah retreated to the caves hiding from the evil Queen Jezebel, who had sworn to kill him!


The Jezreel Valley:

The name Jezreel means, “May God sow.” But more shockingly, the Jezreel valley was well known as the location of much fighting and bloodshed. Here the Jezreel's rulers killed Ahab's 70 sons, put their heads in baskets, and brought them to Jehu Queen Jezebel murdered Naboth in his own vineyard in Jezreel and later died after being thrown from a palace and devoured by dogs. No less than thirty-four battles have occurred in or around this area.  It Is also the Stage for the Final Battle, the Armageddon- Many biblical scholars interpret Armageddon as a symbolic reference to a future, apocalyptic battle that will take place at the end of time. It is seen as a final showdown between the forces of good and evil, where God's judgment will be executed upon the wicked, and the righteous will be vindicated.


Tel Megiddo is the site of the ancient city of Megiddo, the remains of which form a tell (archaeological mound), situated in northern Israel. for Christians the word Megiddo is synonymous with the end of the world as mentioned in the Book of Revelation. Megiddo, or Armageddon, will be the site of the Final Battle. This will be the final battle of many fought here. Excavation has uncovered about 26 layers of settlements dating back to the Chalcolithic period.


Sepphoris Arabic (صفورية) is an archaeological site located in the central Galilee region of Israel, north-northwest of Nazareth. The site holds a rich and diverse historical and architectural legacy that includes Hellenistic, ancient Jewish, Roman, Byzantine, early Islamic, Crusader, Mamluk and Ottoman remains. In the Roman period, it was also called Diocaesaraea. Since Late Antiquity, it was believed to be the birthplace of Mary, mother of Jesus, and the village where Saints Anna and Joachim are often said to have resided, where today a fifth-century basilica is excavated at the site honouring the birth of Mary. Notable structures at the site include a Roman theatre, two early Christian churches, a Crusader fort partly rebuilt by Zahir al-Umar in the 18th century, and over sixty different mosaics dating from the third to the sixth century CE."Mona Lisa of the Galilee", 4th-century Roman mosaic. The area where the remains of the ancient city have been excavated, was designated an archaeological reserve named Tzipori National Park in 1992.

Tabgha: - Church of Multiplication

The Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish, is best known for Christ’s miraculous multiplication of loaves and fish to feed a multitude of 5000 men, plus women and children who were sitting on the grass. Then he took five loaves and two fish, “looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves . . . and the disciples gave them to the crowds”. After they had eaten, the leftovers filled 12 baskets, the miraculous feeding came after Jesus learnt that Herod Antipas had beheaded his cousin, John the Baptist.

The Primacy of Peter:

Is the spot where Jesus is believed to have made his third appearance to his disciples after his   Resurrection. Peter and six other disciples had been fishing all night without catching anything. Just after daybreak Jesus stood on the beach, though they did not recognize him. Jesus told the disciples to cast their net on the right side of the boat and the net filled with 153 fish. When the disciples dragged the net ashore, they found that Jesus had cooked them breakfast on a charcoal fire. Jesus challenged Peter three times with the question: “Do you love me?” Peter’s positive response to this three-fold challenge cancelled out his three-fold denial of Jesus the night before his crucifixion. Then Jesus gave Peter a three-fold commission: “Feed my lambs …Tend my sheep . . . Feed my sheep.” And he also indicated that Peter would die by martyrdom. After this event Peter’s primacy as head of the apostles was recognized. The rock incorporated in the church floor is traditionally believed to be the place where Jesus prepared breakfast. It was known to medieval pilgrims as Mensa Christ (the table of Christ).



meaning "tower";Arabic: المجدل, was an ancient Jewish city on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, 5 km (north of Tiberias. It is believed to be the birthplace of Mary Magdalene.Archaeological excavations found that the settlement began during the Hellenistic period (between the second and first centuries BCE) and ended during the late Roman period (third century CE). Later excavations brought the discovery of an ancient synagogue, called the "Migdal Synagogue", dating from the Second Temple period. It is the oldest synagogue found in the Galilee, and one of the few synagogues from that period found in the entire country, as of the time of the excavation. They also found the Magdala stone, which has a seven-branched menorah symbol carved on it. It is the earliest menorah of that period to be discovered outside Jerusalem. As archaeologists continued to dig, they discovered an entire first century Jewish town lying just below the surface. The excavation revealed multiple structures and four mikvaot (plural of mikvah or mikveh) is a bath used for the purpose of ritual immersion in Judaism to achieve ritual purity. Another synagogue from the same period was discovered at Magdala. It has also been described as "the capital of a toparchy", and is compared to Sepphoris and Tiberias in that it had "administrative apparatus and personnel" though not to the same extent.

Mt Arbel:

is a mountain in The Lower Galilee near Tiberias, with high cliffs, views of Mount Hermon and the Golan Heights, a cave-fortress, and ruins of an ancient synagogue. Mount Arbel sits across from Mount Nitai; their cliffs were created as a result of the geological processes leading to the creation of the Jordan Rift Valley. And from the lookout atop the mountain, almost all of the Galilee is visible including Safed, as well as Tiberias and most of the Sea of Galilee, and the slopes of the Golan Heights on the other side of the Sea.

Day 5

Golan Heights- Caesarea Philippi(Banias),Hazor, The alter at the Dan,


Golan Heights:

Arabic: هَضْبَةُ الْجَوْلَانِ, is a region in the Levant spanning about 1,800 km2 . The region defined as the Golan Heights differs between disciplines: as a geological and biogeographical region, as a geopolitical region, it refers to the border region captured from Syria by Israel during the Six-Day War of 1967; the territory has been occupied by the latter since then and was subject to a de facto Israeli annexation in 1981. This region includes the western two-thirds of the geological Golan Heights and the Israeli-occupied part of Mount Hermon. The earliest evidence of human habitation on the Golan dates to the Upper Paleolithic period Throughout the Biblical period, Since the Six-Day War of 1967, the western two-thirds of the Golan Heights has been occupied and administered by Israel whereas the eastern third remains under the control of Syria.

Caesarea Philippi (Banias):

lies in lush area near the foot of Mount Hermon, was a city dominated by immoral activities and pagan worship. Caesarea Philippi stood only twenty-five miles from the religious communities of Galilee. Jesus met with His disciples at Caesarea Philippi, here Peter declared that HE was “the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus then promised Peter “the keys of the kingdom of heaven”. 


Located north of the Sea of Galilee on a trade route connecting Egypt and Babylon, Hazor was the largest biblical-era site in Israel. It was conquered and destroyed in 732 B.C.E. An Assyrian citadel and palace are known (Stratum III), as well as a few remains from the Persian and Hellenistic periods (Strata II–I). In 2005 Hazor, along with the other two Biblical tells were registered as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.


The Dan the Altar:

The high place at Dan, in northern Israel, dates to 920 BC, when Israel was divided into the northern (Israel) and the southern (Judah) kingdoms. The high place was surrounded by a wall. On top of the high place were buildings that housed the shrine or "idol" that was worshipped there. archaeologist who directed this excavation, found evidence of three different high places on this site, all built on the same location.The earliest remains date to King Jeroboam in the tenth century BC. As the new king of the recently formed northern kingdom, Jeroboam needed an alternative to the temple established by David and Solomon at Jerusalem. Probably built over an existing "religious sanctuary," the high place at Dan focused on a golden calf as the object of worship drift into pagan practices and values. At the second stage, the platform of the high place was rebuilt probably by King Ahab, whose devotion to Baal is well known. Israel continued to sink deeper into pagan practices and values and further away from God. The third stage came during the reign of Jeroboam II. Archaeologists found only parts of the altar, including one of the horns that protruded from the four corners and part of the steps leading to it. Based on these finds, archaeologists constructed the metal frame, which shows how massive the altar was. It towered over the altars of earlier times. During Jeroboam II's reign, Amos predicted the final destruction of the Israelite nation because of its idolatry and pagan practices. His message must have seemed totally out of place because Israel was at the peak of prosperity. Thirty years later, however, the northern 10 tribes were destroyed by the brutal Assyrian army and ceased to exist as a people. Ashes and burn marks from a great fire were among the remains of this altar and high place, confirming Amos' prediction.

Dead Sea:

Also called the Sea of Lut, Sea of Salt: The Dead Sea, itself, is an inland body of water appropriately named due to the fact that it’s extremely high salt and mineral-rich waters are not conducive to sustaining life. In fact, the Dead Sea is nearly ten times saltier than any of the world’s oceans.


Are the Caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered not so long ago. Located on the north-western shore of the Dead Sea, Qumran is located between Jerusalem and the major Dead Sea beaches and attractions such as Ein Gedi and Masada.

This large and old Elah tree still remains in the valley Located on the east end of the valley is the site of Adullam. This place where David hid in his initial flight from Saul.so in David’s day, this site was apparently in “no man’s land” where he could stay safely out of the path of Saul or the Philistines. David hid in the “cave of Adullam. Today there are many caves at the site and it is not clear which one or ones David used, as many have been used and modified in the years since. While he was here, 400 men who were in debt, distress, or discontent, gathered around David.

Western Judean hills:

or Judaean Hills or the Hebron Mountains, is a mountain range in Israel and the West Bank where Jerusalem, Hebron and several other biblical cities are located.

Day 8

Mount of Olives and all its churches- Gethsemane Garden, Hezekiah’s Tunnel


Mt. of Olives:

It is named so for the Olive groves that once covered its slopes. It stands 300ft above the city of Jerusalem. On the Mount of Olives is where Jesus often went there to pray. On his triumphal entry to Jerusalem before Passover on Palm Sunday and on a donkey, went down the mountain He was by a crowd acclaiming him by waving palm branches and laying cloaks on the ground to honour Him. Also, it is the place from which Jesus ascended to heaven from the Church of the Ascension.

Church of Pater Noster:

is where Jesus Christ’s taught the Lord’s Prayer to his disciples.On the walls around the church and its vaulted cloister, translations of the Lord’s Prayer in 140 languages are inscribed on colourful ceramic plaques.

Church of the Ascension:

is a shrine located on the Mount of Olives on the site believed to be the earthly spot where Jesus ascended into Heaven after his resurrection. It houses a slab of stone believed to contain one of his footprints.

Dominus Flavit Church:

Or the little teardrop church, located halfway down the western slope of the Mount of Olives, it is in this place where Jesus wept over the future fate of Jerusalem, it occurred during Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem on the first Palm Sunday, when crowds threw their cloaks on the road in front of him and shouted, “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of Lord” Looking down on the city, Jesus wept over it as he prophesied its future destruction. Enemies would “set up ramparts around you and surround you, and hem you in on every side . . . crush you to the ground . . . and they will not leave within you one stone upon another; because you did not recognize the time of your visitation from God. “Within 40 years, in AD 70, Jesus’ prophesy was fulfilled. Roman legions besieged                                                                                                                                                    Jerusalem and, after six months of fighting, burnt the Temple and levelled the city.

This Church enshrines a section of bedrock where Jesus prayed before his arrest ad His tears penetrated the rock and still visible to this day.


Kidron Valley:

The Kidron Valley is a place just outside of Jerusalem, in between the city and the Mount of Olives. The name Kidron (or Cedron in the KJV) is either a reference to the “darkness” or “murkiness” of the water that periodically flows in that place or to the cedars that grow in that area. The Kidron Valley is technically a wadi, as a stream runs through it only after heavy rains. This location is associated in the Bible with sorrow, judgment, and death. Jesus crossed the Valley of Kidron many times in His travels. On the night of His arrest, Jesus “went out with His disciples over the Brook Kidron, where there was a garden” Once in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus felt the full weight of His impending death, so much so that “his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood”. The Bible speaks of an end-times judgment on the earth. As God is restoring the fortunes of His people, Israel, He says, “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel”. The Valley of Jehoshaphat, or the Valley of Decision is thought by many to be a reference to the Valley of Kidron. In each case, the Kidron Valley serves as backdrop to death and sorrow and judgment. 

Hezekiah’s Tunnel

Leading from the Gihon Spring to the Pool of Siloan, Hezekiah’s Tunnel (also known as the Shiloah Tunnel) is one of only a few 8th-century-BC structures worldwide that are fully accessible to the public. The newer Siloam Tunnel also known as Hezekiah's Tunnel is a water tunnel that was carved within the City of David in ancient times, now located in the Arab neighborhood of Silwan in eastern Jerusalem. Its popular name is due to the most common hypothesis that it dates from the reign of Hezekiah of Judah (late 8th and early 7th century BC) According to the Bible, King Hezekiah prepared Jerusalem for an impending siege by the Assyrians, by "blocking the source of the waters of the upper Gihon, and leading them straight down on the west to the City of David" By diverting the waters of the Gihon, he prevented the enemy forces under Sennacherib from having access to water.The tunnel leads from the Gihon Spring to the Pool of Siloam. The walk-through Hezekiah's Tunnel takes about 20 minutes (or 40 minutes if it's busy), but allow yourself plenty of time for the descent to the start and return ascent. If you don't want to get wet, there's a second tunnel without water, which takes about 15 minutes to walk through. 

You need special clothes and long boots to walk inside the wet tunnel) Because the water is Knee deep.

St. George’s Monastery is a Greek Orthodox cliff-hanging complex carved into a sheer rock wall in the Judaean Desert and is one of the most breathtaking sights in the Holy Land. Starting in the 4th century, monks began to live in the many caves of Wadi Qelt. The monastery of St. George was founded in the 5th century by John of Thebes, an Egyptian. He gathered a small band of five Syrian hermits who had settled around the cave where they believed the prophet Elijah was fed by ravens. Elijah visited the cave by the monastery while traveling to the Sinai Peninsula as he fled the threats of Jezebel after he had killed the false prophets of Baal and Asherah. The monastery was destroyed in 614 AD by the Persians and was more or less abandoned after the Persians swept through the valley and massacred the fourteen monks who dwelt there. The bones and skulls of the martyred monks can still be seen today in the monastery chapel. The Crusaders made some attempts at restoration of the monastery in 1179. However, it was abandoned after Muslims regained control of the Holy Land and drove out the Crusaders.
