10 DAY ITINERARY
The Itenerary will include several other stops along the way, that are not listed here but will be included as the time line allows.
Depart for the Holy Land.
Arrive in Israel at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv and board tour bus heading to Caesarea - A site of one of Herod's magnificent, opulent palaces. Haifa and Mt. Carmel - Standing on top of Mt. Carmel the pilgrim will observe the place Elijah defeated the 450 prophets of Baal. In addition the pilgrim will observe from the top of the Muhraka Monastery another excellent view of the Jezreel Valley.
Bethsaida - This was a fishing village on the Sea of Galilee that Jesus visited often. Capernaum - The fishing village which served as home during Jesus' Galilee ministry. Tabgha - The Church of the Multiplication. This is where the feeding of the five thousand took place. The simple Chapel of the Primacy stands on the shore of the lake. It was built on the spot where the risen Christ appeared to his disciples, who were fishing on the lake. After visiting the Chapel of the Primacy, we will sail across the beautiful sea of Galilee. Yardenit - Experience baptism at Yardenit, in the Jordan River, located at the southern tip of the Sea of Galilee.
Gamla - At Gamla, pilgrims will walk the ruins of an ancient city destroyed by the Romans. Sit in a synagogue that Jesus more than likely taught in as you listen to the distant waterfalls and marvel at the large vultures and eagles that soar on the heights above. Tel Bental - Stand atop a volcano that rises 1400 feet above sea level and see the plains of Syria where many modern and ancient battles have been fought. To the north the snowcapped Mt. Hermon rises in the distance. Caesarea Philippi (Banyas) Tel Dan - An ancient city and the source of one of the largest branches of the Jordan River. In biblical times it marked Israel's northern border. It is now located in 100 acres of a glorious nature reserve.
Mt. Tabor - Pilgrims will visit the Basilica of the Transfiguration, the site where Jesus was transfigured. The view from atop Mt. Tabor is one of the most breathtaking panoramas in Israel. Nazareth - Jesus grew up in the village of Nazareth until his ministry began at the age of 30. Zapori (Sepphoris) - These ruins date back to the first Temple period and give the pilgrim an intimate view of the remnants of a complete pre-Roman Jewish town along with a Roman theatre. It is the home of the Mona Lisa of the Galilee. Tel Megiddo - This tel consists of twenty civilizations built one on top of another. The Jezreel Valley surrounds the tel, giving the pilgrims an in-the-round view of where the battle of Armageddon will take place.
Qumran - This area is the location of the caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found by a young shepherd boy. Legend has it John the Baptist once studied here with the Essenes. Massada - Once the Palace of Herod, and then a refuge for zealots, it is considered by some the Gamla of the South. Eventually conquered by the Romans, Massada offers a magnificent view of the Dead Sea and surrounding area along with vivid insight of the people from the 1st century. EnGedi - En Gedi was a source of renewal and strength for David and his men as they fled King Saul. David would replenish in the Living Waters of En Gedi as we replenish in the Living Waters of God's Word. As a deer panteth after the water brooks, so my soul panteth after thee, my God.. (Psalms 42:2) Dead Sea - The warm waters of the Dead Sea with the salt content 30 times stronger than any ocean is said to offer many medicinal remedies. The group will enjoy the remainder of the day at the Dead Sea.
Mt. of Olives - The first stop will be the Mt. of Olives where Jesus ascended into heaven. Take a moment to reflect back to that day and time while your eyes gaze upon the panoramic view of the Holy City. The presence of God is all about, cast your eyes toward the Eastern Gate, and envision the triumphant return of our Lord in all His glory. Tomb of the Prophets - The pilgrims press on to their next destination, the tombs of Zachariah, Haggai and Malachi with one last glance back at Jerusalem, the jewel in God's crown. Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of all Nations -Walk and pray among the olive trees as our Lord did nearly 2,000 years ago. What an impact this very night has had on the world and all of mankind. Located here are the tombs of Absalom, Jehoshaphat, Zachariah the Cohen, and St. James. From here you will have a scenic view of the Mount of Olives and Ancient Tombs.
Temple Mt. - After a hearty breakfast the pilgrims will go up on the Temple Mt. This is the most sacred piece of land in the entire world. Here the Temple of the Most High God once stood in mighty splendor and could be seen from miles away. The Temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD. The Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosques has stood since the 7th Century AD. Pretorium - Barracks of the Roman Soldiers. Mt. Zion - Pilgrims will go up to Mt. Zion, here they will enter the Upper Room where Jesus served the Last Supper. Envision them lounging at a low table, listening in question and wonderment to their Master. Also on Mt. Zion are the Tomb of King David and the church of the Dormition of Mary. It is believed the Virgin Mary died in this place. Old City - From Mt. Zion we will walk into the Old City with all its sights, sounds and smells. Pilgrims will visit the Jewish Quarter, The Cardo (3,000-year-old street), and Holocaust Museum . The group will take the time to shop before returning to the hotel.
Via Dolorosa - We will walk the Via Dolorosa starting at St. Stephen's Gate (Lion's Gate). Our next stop will be the Wilson Archaeological Park below the Temple Mount near the Dung Gate. The Davidson Center is also located there. It has three floors and houses a theatre gallery. This gallery contains a screening of a unique high-definition 10 minute digital video (the first available in Israel), describing the Jewish pilgrimage to Jerusalem during the Second Temple period. Garden Tomb - As Jesus was led through the Damascus Gate, he struggled toward Golgotha (Gordon's Calvary), where He was crucified for all sinners. He was buried in the Garden Tomb, from which he arose after the third day. Victory over hell, death and the grave is ours, because He has risen.
Before we leave Israel on the evening flight back to the States we will visit the Valley of Elah, (where David and Goliath fought) and Beth Shemesh (the place of the return of the Ark of the Covenant by the Philistines).

My fellow Apostolic Believers and Saints of the Most High God; The time of Christ's return is getting close to very close and this could be the last opportunity to witness where Jesus Christ (Yeshua) came into the world to save sinners and where he will return to establish his 1,000 year government. Make the sacrifice and travel with Chief Elder Walker to the Holy Land.
Blessed be the Saints and Belivers of the Most High God (Yeshua)
