Highlights
What makes this tour special

We are planning for a study trip, focusing on the life of Jesus. If you enjoy learning, Bible study, and theological discussions, this might be a trip for you. Most of the participants are from an Anabaptist background, so teaching and discussions will reflect that perspective. We plan to do a good bit of walking and hiking, not just ride the bus. We will travel through the Land of the Bible, from the Mediterranean coast to the Negev desert, from the Judean wilderness to the Sea of Galilee. We will visit the lowest spot on earth, the Dead Sea, and the most-contested site, Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
