Spend time in Capernaum, the center of Jesus’ ministry in Galilee and where Jesus performed many miracles, such as expelling demons and curing the sick. Visit the site where Jesus taught and reflect on his teaching and preaching of the gospel (Matthew 4:13, 23). Stand where Peter stood when he professed his devotion to the risen Christ (John 21) on three occasions. Get a taste of the local flavor when you enjoy lunch at a communal settlement, known as a kibbutz, in the Golan Heights.

Later, arrive in one of the holiest cities in the world: Jerusalem. (B, D)

 

Day 6: Saturday, February 13, 2021 Jerusalem - Mount Zion - Ein Karem

Your time in Jerusalem begins with a visit to the Mount of Olives.
