Day 4: Galilee
Wake up to a beautiful morning in the area where Jesus spent 3 years of his ministry. Today we will dedicate our time to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. After breakfast, we will drive north through the Golan Heights to Caesarea Phillipi and the Banias, one of the water resources of the Jordan River.
On to Tel Dan for a visit to the archeological finds and beautiful nature preserve. Continue back to the Sea of Galilee to visit Capernaum, the “Town of Jesus,” walk along the ruins of the Bibilical Village, and see the Synagogue where Jesus preached and the house of the Peter’s mother-in-law.
We then drive up to the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount. We will also stop at Corazin for a quick visit. We will visit a 2,000 year old fisherman boat – the Jesus Boat and sail the boat across the Sea of Galilee, and then have the famous St. Peter’s fish for lunch in a restaurant on the lake shore.
We finish the day with a Baptismal Service at the Jordan River for whoever chooses to participate. We return to the hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.
