All of the Christian highlights in northern Israel in two amazing tour days. Visit the Plains of Armageddon (Megiddo), the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth, Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights.
We begin our tour by traveling passed Herzliya and Natanya and continue north along the coastal road parallel to the Mediterranean, we turn inland and drive through the Valley of Armageddon (Revelations 16:6), from here we can see Megiddo. On our way towards Nazareth we visit the Mt of Precipitation (Luke 4:28-30).
In Nazareth we visit the Church of Annunciation which was constructed on the spot where Gabriel appeared to Mary and told her she would soon be with child (Luke 1:26). Next-door we find the Church of Saint Joseph where Jesus’ father, Joseph had his carpentry.
We depart Nazareth and travel to the Sea of Galilee on the way we pass Cana where Jesus turned water into wine. (John 2:1-12). At the bottom of Mount Beatitude we visit Capernaum on the shore of the Kinneret or Sea of Galilee. Here we see the home of Peter and the Church of the Multiplication. (Mark 6:30-44)
We travel along the waterfront of the Sea of Galilee where Jesus calmed the sea and walked on the water. (Mark 4:35-41), 6:45-52)Across the water we can see the Golan Heights forming a beautiful backdrop as we pass the city of Tiberius which was settled more than 2000 years ago and named after the Roman emperor Tiberius.
We reach the southern region of the Kinneret where the Jordan River flows into the Sea of Galilee and where Jesus was baptized. Here you may be able to participate in a baptismal ceremony in the very same spot that Jesus did so many years ago. (Mark 1:9-11)
As we head south on our return journey we can see Mount Tabor where the Transfiguration took place. (Matthew 17:1-9)
