Come Back to Israel with Dr. Michael Rydelnik!!
If you’ve been to Israel before, and always wanted to go back for a deeper look, join us October 24-Nov 4, 2019 for a Deeper Look ~ Messianic Journey Through Israel. This Deeper Look Tour is perfect for everyone who has been to Israel before. This unique tour will explore the Land on a more extensive, and seldom taken, path from the Northern Galilee to the Negev. There will be an emphasis on discovering your Biblical heritage by taking a deeper look at sites that are beyond the time limit of classic Israel tours. Scripture from Genesis and the Prophets, to the Gospels, Acts and Revelation will come alive and enrich your walk with the Lord.
There is so much more to learn, see and experience in Israel than time allows on a classic Israel tour. Therefore, the Deeper Look Tour is designed for folks who have been to Israel before, on any Israel tour (not just Messianic Journeys), either recently or years ago. On this Deeper Look Tour you will not re-visit all the sites you’ve seen before, but will go to other important and unexpected places.
For example, we’ll explore Hatzor, one of the largest fortified cities in ancient Canaan, and the evidence of Joshua’s conquest is stunning. We’ll also investigate Gamla, the “Masada of the Galilee,” where Jewish resistance fighters made a last stand against Rome in the North. Then visit, Safed, the “city on a hill” spoken of by Messiah Jesus. All of this and so much more, from Migdal, city of Mary Magdalene with its synagogue certainly visited by Messiah Jesus, to Arad, key Negev city in the days of King David.
This is an exciting “boots on the ground” experience that will include a hike on Mt. Gilboa, where King Saul died; a camel ride in wilderness of Judea; a jeep trek on Israel’s Burma Road; lunch in Nazareth Village; and a rare trip to Shiloh where the Tabernacle stood for almost 400 years.
Return to Israel with Dr. Michael Rydelnik to study the Scriptures on location, and gain a deeper understanding of the LORD’s work in His Land today and the challenges faced by Israel among her neighbors. Explore, as never before, your spiritual heritage and deepen your walk with the Lord as you pray, sing, worship, study, laugh, and learn in “His Holy Land” (Psalm 78:54).
If you’ve always wanted to go back to Israel to see more Biblical sites and reap even more on-location insights into Scripture, we hope you can join us in the Fall of 2019 for our Deeper Look Tour. This is a maximum two bus tour, and is already filling up quickly. Space is limited, so please register early.

Individuals registering for this journey accept the responsibility for being in good health and able to walk without assistance. If you require a cane, crutches, wheelchair or personal assistance to walk, sorry but this is not the trip for you. You must be physically able to independently walk and travel with the tour group. If you have questions about this, please contact us.
