Israel is a destination like no other – there are so many layers of interest in this tiny country! Not only does one find millennia of history there, but also diverse beauty of landscape from the fertile, lush Galilee area to the desert hills; beautiful Mount Hermon in the north where the springs that form the Jordan River originate to the Dead Sea (the lowest point on earth) at the southern end of that river; coastal plains to the desert hills and the fertile Jordan Valley; mountain ranges to deep valleys. There are fascinating geological formations and four bodies of water: the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, the Dead Sea, and the Sea of Galilee (a fresh-water lake). It’s possible to snow ski on Mt. Hermon in the morning and water ski in the Mediterranean that afternoon! There are Roman ruins and archaeological excavations that reveal ancient civilizations in amazing detail, and enable us to understand the past in a way that no amount of reading and studying can ever begin to provide.
And then when you add the layer of the faith component to all of this, you have a travel experience that surpasses all others. Visit places you’ve known about from your earliest days of reading the Bible. You begin to realize that to your faith is rooted in archaeology and history, and was lived out by real people who walked in this land.
