2018 BJU Holy Land Tour

A study tour in the Land of Israel with an optional extension to Jordan and Egypt

Journey to the land that God promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Examine the excavations at Caesarea on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea where Peter proclaimed the gospel to the first Gentile converts and where Paul testified before Roman governors. Marvel at the spectacular vista of the Valley of Armageddon, the rugged mountain fortress of Masada and the stark beauty of the Dead Sea. Sail across the Sea of Galilee to visit the villages where Jesus lived, preached and performed miracles. Reflect on God’s gracious plan of redemption as you view Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives and follow the footsteps of Jesus through the narrow streets of the ancient city.

This year the BJU tour will also offer an optional 5-day extension to visit the highlights of Jordan and Egypt, where you will be able to view the Promised Land from the top of Mount Nebo, explore the ancient rock-city of Petra, gaze at the amazing pyramids of Egypt, and much more.

Join tour hosts Steve Pettit (president of Bob Jones University) and Sam Horn (BJU’s executive vice president for enrollment and ministerial advancement) for an unforgettable opportunity to experience the geography and culture that influenced the daily life of prophets, priests and kings. After soaking up the sights and sounds of the Holy Land, you will return with a fresh appreciation for the truth of God’s Word, and you will never be the same again.
