October 2021 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 October 19–29, 2021, with an optional 4-day extension to Jordan and Egypt (October 19-November 2).
After being closed for 15 months due to the COVID pandemic, the nation of Israel has recently reopened for foreign tourists. Access is currently restricted, however, to those who have been vaccinated. Jordan and Egypt are also open. This is an excellent time to visit the Holy Land before the number of tourists return to pre-COVID levels!
