Bible Land Tours
For many Christians, it is a dream come true: to visit the land of the Bible. Though there is no explicit command from Christ or the New Testament for Christian believers to do a holy land pilgrimage, the fact is that since the 2nd Century AD, they have done precisely that.
Today, the numbers are increasing, even though the Middle East remains an unstable region.
Why do Christians make the journey? Two key reasons:
- Devotion: They want to walk where Jesus walked.
- Education: They want to learn more about the Bible.
These two reasons apply to most all Christian pilgrims, regardless of denominational differences, from the first century AD until now. At Teach All Nations, your tour leader has a Master’s degree in the History and Geography of the Bible, having led 36 tours so far. We believe that a well-balanced, faith-building tour can incorporate the following elements:
A. Information: Learn more about the Word of God, Christian living, and current events by walking in the places where the Christ, prophets, priests, and kings walked. It is also important to meet the ‘living stones,’ meaning local believers in the land. Hear their stories first-hand.
B. Inspiration: Undistracted from our normal routines, this is an ideal time to hear from God and worship Him in the context of a Bible land tour. Many people are water baptised in the Jordan River, and others experience a touch of God throughout the tour.
C. Recreational: It is important that, were possible, people have a chance to enjoy themselves, be it shopping, discretionary exploration, or floating on the Dead Sea.
A well-organised, inspirational tour of the Bible lands can be a life-changer.
