Our planned Itinerary to Israel has now been largely determined. The plan is:
Day 1: Depart US from Atlanta by air.
Day 2: Arrive Israel - One night in the coastal area near Tel Aviv.
Day 3: Caesarea, Megiddo & Nazareth - Overnight lodging for the next two nights in the Tiberias area on the Sea of Galilee.
Day 4: Capernaum, Dan, Caesarea Philippi & Mount of Beatitudes.
Day 5: Jordan River Baptism Site, Beth Shean & Dead Sea - Our lodging for the evening is at the Dead Sea - the lowest place on earth. Spend time in the special spa and enjoy a dip in the Dead Sea for a relaxing float before dinner.
Day 6: Masada, Ein Gedi, Dead Sea Scrolls, John the Baptist's Cave - We arrive in Jerusalem late this afternoon and check in to our hotel which will be our lodging for the next four nights.
Day 7: Around Jerusalem, Bible Times, and the Holocaust Museum - In the afternoon we will enjoy a detailed tour of Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum, were we will be reminded of what the Jews have suffered as a people.
Day 8: Yeshua' Steps, the Last Days, Messianic Lecture - We will visit the Wailing Wall and then the fascinating Rabbinical Tunnels leading us through the Second Temple era. The tunnel and exhibit give a clear understanding of the amazing construction of the Temple Mount, giant stones, water supply and Roman street where our L-RD was led to judgment. Before exiting the tunnel we see the immense cornerstone rejected by the builders.
Day 9: Way of Suffering, Garden Tomb, Pentecost - We will have a free afternoon for our leisure to shop or explore Jerusalem on our own.
