Greetings! From October 6 to 18, 2023 Mary and I will be leading a 13-day trip to Israel during which time we will Explore Biblical Israel from Dan in the north to Beersheba in the south.
This trip not only includes Jerusalem, sites associated with the ministry of Jesus around the Sea of Galilee, and Hazor, Dan, and Caesarea Philippi in the north, but also some not-so-frequently visited places such as Arad, Beersheba, Lachish (second most important Judean city after Jerusalem), Azekah (David and Goliath), Beth Shemesh (Samson), Shiloh (Tabernacle and Ark of Covenant), Mount Gerizim (Samaritan Temple), and Samaria (capital city of Ahab and Jezebel and others).
I will be giving mini-lectures along the way both on the bus and on the sites, drawing from my studies. I have spent 16 years of my adult life living in, and guiding, academic groups in Israel, Jordan, Greece, and Turkey (including living, teaching, and guiding in Jerusalem for 7 years).
Tour Dates and Cost: October 6–18, 2023. Cost: $4,990 per person in Double Occupancy; add $1,950 Single Room supplement; Includes airfare from New York to TLV and return.

You are invited to join us!
