Next May we will be leading a tour of Asia Minor and a hike from Nazareth to Capernaum, and when we come up over the Mount of Beatitudes and see Capernaum on the Sea of Galilee below us. Our last day will be touring Jerusalem — the Temple mount, Gethsemane and the Mount of Olives, and the breaktaking view of Jerusalem (see after the jump). We’d love for you to consider joining us.
Here are some of the details:
The big picture: we will fly into Instanbul (Constantinople), tour some of the cities of Peter and Paul and John in Asia Minor, fly to Tel Aviv, get a bus to Nazareth, Jesus’ home town, and then the unique part of this trip is that we will go on a four-day hike from Nazareth to Capernaum. Then we will bus down to Jerusalem to spend a day in Jerusalem.
Please think of joining Kris and me on this life-time of memories tour. Our intent is to join other Christians in reflecting on our faith as we experience the holy land and sacred spaces that were significant in the lives of Jesus and the apostles.
