Study Tour Overview
Israel has been called the Fifth Gospel because God revealed Himself to mankind by coming to earth in one particular place…the land of Israel. The events of the Incarnation have flowed through and impacted history for the last 2,000+ years, and the places where God was humanly revealed remain available for us to visit today.
The Sonlife Israel Study Tour will focus on a chronological view of Christ’s life and ministry. We will spend time in Bethlehem and Nazareth learning about His early years. We will visit the wilderness to understand His ministry foundations. We’ll spend 4 nights in the Galilee discovering Jesus’ ministry training and outreach priorities. Jerusalem will be home for 7 nights as we trace the sites associated with the teaching and passion of Christ.
The Study Tour includes: 11 nights lodging, deluxe bus transportation throughout the country, daily breakfast and dinner, all entrance fees, the services of a professional guide and driver, tips for drivers, guide and hotel staff.
Tour costs do NOT include: airfare, noon lunches, snacks, beverages at meals, souvenirs, items of a personal nature and air travel cancellation insurance.
