JOURNEY TO THE HOLY
THE SEA OF GALILEE
Manger Square, Bethlehem
Is there anywhere better to be on Christmas Eve than Bethlehem? The very place God came down as a baby to begin his mission on earth and save humankind all those nights ago.
Sit under the stars and hear the sheep bleat softly in the Shepherd's Field, untouched, it seems, by time. Or, explore the streets and join the thousands of believers uniting as one to celebrate this holy night.
THE PLACES YOU'LL EXPERIENCE...
The Sea of Galilee
It is the place where the majority of Jesus' adult ministry occurred. Stand on the banks where Jesus called Peter, James and John to be fishers of men. Sail on a vessel right to the center of the lake. As the engine slows and you feel the gentle rock of the lake, let your mind wander to the day the disciples saw Jesus appear through the mist, walking on water.
Petra is an ancient city famed for its architecture and rose-hue rock formations. The city is believed to have been constructed around 312 BC and was unknown to the Western world until 1812.
Besides being one of the wonders of the world, Petra is also known for the filming location of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Located in the southern region of the country, it remains Jordan's most popular tourist destination.
The Way of Suffering. Walk the steps of Jesus as He carried the cross through the streets of Jerusalem. See where He fell, once, twice, three times. Watch the narrative come to life before your very eyes.
The Empty Tomb
The story only begins at the Via Dolorosa. Visit a tomb similar to the one Mary visited when she found it empty. Hear the birds and feel the peace about the place. Take communion next to the tomb and feel the joy of redemption overwhelm you with peace.
