Mount of Beatitudes
Jesus Boat – Cruise on the Galilee - Tiberias
After breakfast, visit Sepphoris, an ancient city and its wealth of beautiful artifacts (over 60 mossaics!). Sepphoris was site of the largest construction project in Israel in the first century. Because of its proximity to Nazareth, it is certainly possible that Joseph and Messiah, as carpenters, may have helped to build it. At Kibbutz Misgav (the northernmost kibbutz in Israel), stand on Israel’s northern border with Lebanon, see the Hula Valley and the Good Fence. At the northern shore walk, the ancient city of Capernaum, the town where Messiah ministered and drew His Disciples (Matthew 4:13). Visit the excavation of the House of the Apostle Peter and the Ancient Synagogue of Capernaum. For lunchyou will be able to experience the St. Peter fish (tilapia) from the Sea of Galilee. Continue to Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-12). At Kibbutz Ginnosar study the ancient 1st-century, wooden fishing-boat, the “Jesus Boat,” excavated from the mud floor of the lake and now on display in the museum dedicated to its preservation. At sundown, cruise the Sea of Galilee under the stars, worshiping the Lord in song—one of the most memorable evenings of your tour.
Dinner and overnight: Return to your hotel in Tiberius, near the Sea of Galilee.
Day 5 • November 6 - Monday:
Magdala - Tel Dan – Caesarea Philippi - Golan Heights – Yardenit,
Your first stop today will be at Migdal (Magdala), the home of Mary Magdalene. Visit the extraordinary archeological find recently discovered during construction of a hotel—the village’s first century synagogue! As Jesus visited the synagogues all around Galilee, he was likely standing on the very stones at this site! Then, drive to north again to Tel Dan, an important biblical city and a breathtaking Nature Reserve. The bible mentions the city a few times: "From Dan to Beer Sheba," indicating the full length of the kingdom of Israel. Continue to the Banias, site of the ancient Caesarea Philippi. It is here that Peter made his confession of faith in Jesus (Matthew 16:13). View the waterfall. Continue on for a panoramic view of the Sea of Galilee from Mt. Bental in the strategically vital Golan Heights. End the day at the baptismal site Yardenit in a special baptism in the waters of the Jordan River (baptism optional).

Drive to the western slopes of the hills of Judea, near the biblical city of Modin, the very town in which the Maccabean revolt against the Greeks was born.

Continue to Beersheba and explore the water cistern and Abraham’s Well (if time permits).

Later, you’ll take in Ben Yehuda Street, named after the man whose life-long passion was responsible for reviving the Hebrew language (fulfilling prophecy).
