“AND THESE WORDS, WHICH I COMMAND THEE THIS DAY,
SHALL BE UPON THY HEART”

 
DEUTERONOMY 6:6
 

Bible References

There’s lots to see in the Holy Land: camels, goats, sheep, donkeys, forts, theaters, palaces, walls, stones, (there’s lots of these!) ruins, churches, monasteries and shrines of many faiths. But a trip to the Holy Land is unlike tours to other places.

The Holy Land, a far-away spot we’ve heard tales about since we were toddlers, is a place of the spirit. And it has a unique, timeless guidebook: THE HOLY BIBLE.

"Holy Sites: Gila's Highlights"

 

Reading biblical passages on site, whether it’s an authentic biblical site or a traditional biblical site, is a moving and meaningful experience.  During the tour, your tour host will read, teach or preach passages relating to the sites you are visiting.  And I always recommend, whenever possible, additional “quiet time” for private reading, reflection and prayer.
 

“A trip to the Holy Land changes forever your understanding of the Bible. It’s like having a phone relationship with someone for years and then meeting the person. The relationship then takes on a new and expanded meaning because it has become personal."  Dwight Teske, Oak Park, California
