Holy Land Trip

Northeastern invites you...

to walk where Jesus walked.

Arrive in Tel Aviv on the Mediterranean coast and head north to Galilee to begin your tour through the Holy Land. Visit sites like Caesarea Philippi where Peter confessed that Jesus was Messiah, Jeroboam’s temple at Dan where he built the golden calf statues, and work your way down south to Masada with a free day at the En Gedi resort at the Dead Sea. 

Along the way, learn about the importance of the various archeological and pilgrimage sites, reflect on their relation to events in the Bible, and take the time to think about the significance of what you are seeing and learning for your own life.

Take communion on the Mount of Beatitudes. Renew your baptismal vows at the Jordan River where John baptized Jesus. Journey the roads where our Savior walked.
