May 2022 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 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.
Our tour will also offer an optional 4-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 Sphinx and the Great Pyramids of Egypt, and much more.
We invite you to join us 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.
The tour dates will May 10–20, 2022; with the optional extension to Jordan and Egypt, May 10-24. After many months of closure, Israel began welcoming tourists again on November 1. In an effort to keep both visitors and citizens safe, however, they have instituted the following policy:
- Travelers must have a certificate proving either full vaccination or recovery from COVID-19.
- In addition, Israel requires a negative COVID test no more than 3 days from departure and another negative test upon arrival at the airport in Tel Aviv.

If May 2022 doesn’t fit your schedule, we will also offer an identical tour in October 2022. The price for that tour should be available by the beginning of next year, but the itinerary and most of the other details will be the same as the May tour. You may add your name to our Advance Notice list to make sure that you are among the first to receive information about the October 2022 tour.
