You are invited to join us in Exploring Israel from Dan to Beersheba in October 2023. We will not only explore Jerusalem, but also sites associated with the ministry of Jesus around the Sea of Galilee, and Hazor, Dan, and Caesarea Philippi in the north, and 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). Contact Carl Rasmussen for details.

On 8 May 2007 the Hebrew University announced that Ehud Netzer had discovered the long sought tomb of Herod the Great at the Herodium that is located 7.5 mi. [12 km.] south of Jerusalem.
According to the Jewish historian Josephus, Herod the Great was buried here: Wars. 1.33.9 [670-673], Ant. 17.8.3 [196-199].
