13 Day Bible Study Tour of Israel and Jordan April 2023

Greetings!    On April 11–23, 2023 Mary and I will be leading a 13-day Bible Study Tour of Israel and Jordan.

This trip not only includes Jerusalem and sites associated with the ministry of Jesus around the Sea of Galilee, but also Jerash, Mt. Nebo, and Petra in Jordan.

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:  April 11–23, 2023.  Cost: $4,490 per person in Double Occupancy; add $1,950 Single Room supplement; Includes airfare from major US cities to TLV and return. 

For an Itinerary and additional information contact us soon (2foot.steps.tours+HLP@gmail.com).

You are invited to join us!

Carl and Mary Rasmussen

PS This trip will be followed by a Turkey Bible Study Tour and that by a Greece Bible Study Tour—you are welcome to join one or both of these!
