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,

What a wonderful trip we had to Israel!  Thanks so much for all of your advice and guidance as well as setting up the trip with Benji.  It was enjoyable to meet him at the farewell dinner.  He seems like a very kind and gentle person.  Jerusalem (Regina) Tours did much to make the trip a success.  

Our Ibillin portion of the trip was excellent.  We are fortunate that you allowed us to make this addition and provided suggestions as well.  Thank you for setting up the Bible College in Bethlehem.  We truly enjoyed that and learned so much about the college.

I wanted to let you know:  the guide that picked us up from Ibillin, Dan Levi, was excellent.  He was so knowledgeable and was able to coordinate the sights that we saw in the best order of  any that we have ever seen.  He actually was the perfect guide for our group, very engaging.  The driver, Raffi,  was impressive!  He got into and out of places that I never would attempt!  Please pass our appreciation for these gentlemen to Benji.  The guide that took us to Bethlehem, John, was very good, as well.  It's tough to come in the middle of a trip and try to "take over" for the primary guide, but he did a great job.

We would not hesitate to use Jerusalem Tours again and would be happy to recommend others to use it as well.

Thanks again.
Beth and Duane Priset
