NEW SIGNS PLACED ALONG 40 MILE JESUS TRAIL

Jerusalem, Israel - 24 March 2009 - In advance of the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Israel in May, the Israel Ministry of Tourism is placing signage along the picturesque,40 mile Jesus Trail, which winds its way from Nazareth through Sepphoris, Cana, the Arbel Cliffs, Tabgha, Capernaum and the Mount of Beatitudes, Tiberias and the Jordan River.

The Jesus Trail offers Christian tourists and pilgrims the opportunity to walk on the paths where Jesus and his disciples walked, to understand how the land reflects the New Testament and to connect spiritually to the natural beauty and serenity of the Galilee.
Church of Annunciation

Designed to be walked over three or four days, the Jesus Trail can be enjoyed in smaller segments according to one's personal fitness and time restraints. Overnight options extend from hotels, bed-and-breakfasts to overnight camping, and there are many places to buy water and food along the way. Public buses are available at most starting and end-points. 
 
Some of the seasonal highlights of the trail include fields of bright red anemones or yellow daisies--Jesus' "lilies of the field" (Luke 12:27); wild oats and thistles and a beautifully cultivated field - Jesus' famed Parable of the Sower (Matt. 13:3-9); and climbing to Sepphoris, the image of the "city on a hill" (Matt. 5:14).

Mount of BeatitudesOther highlights further along the route include the fourth century Arbel Synagogue, overlooking the Sea of Galilee; the Arbel Cliffs; Tabgha, the traditional site of the miracle of the loaves and fishes; the Mount of Beatitudes, the traditional site of the Sermon on the Mount; and Capernaum, the former fishing village that was once the center of Jesus' life and ministry.

Testimonials from our Travelers

Sara,

I wish to let you know how much Beth and I enjoyed our recent tour of Israel and Jordan.  We enjoyed the Biblical itinerary and the expertise of our guide, Kobi,  who is superior to any guide we have had (including 3 European "Rick Steves") tours with guides.  The comprehensive itinerary, the quality of the hotels, food, bus and driver all helped contribute to an unforgetable  experience of a lifetime.   Jerusalem Tour's attention to detail really stood out in a positive way.  We had very few additional expenses during the entire trip and that is noteworthy.

The pairing and reading  of scripture by tour members and by Kobe  with the places we visited in Israel, and Jordan were quite  impactful and help us to have even a stronger faith in Jesus and a fresh perspective and admiration for Israel and Jordan and its citizens.

Thanks for a great life experience.

Blessings,
Bob and Beth Lockwood
