Places We Take You
Mount of Olives
The Mount of Olives, one of three hills on a long ridge to the east of Jerusalem, is the location of many biblical events. Before beginning your tour of the Holy City, you should stop at an observation point on the Mount of Olives for an unparalleled view of Jerusalem. The view encompasses almost the entire old and new city, David’s Tower, modern high rises, and the slopes of the city to the Temple Mount and its glittering gold dome. The mount holds an important place in Christian and Jewish traditions and it was the site of several events in the New Testament.
The Last Supper Room
Also known as the “Upper Room” on Mount Zion traditionally held to be the site of The Last Supper. This is where Jesus sat in this specific hall on the last Passover night before he was captured at Gethsemane and sentenced to death by the Romans to crucifixion. During that meal, Jesus stated that the wine and bread his disciples were consuming symbolized his flesh and blood.
Mount of Beatitudes
The Mount of Beatitudes is the place where Jesus gave his important sermon on the mount to the multitude that assembled to see and hear him. The beautiful Basilica of the Church of Mount of Beatitudes is one of the most beautifully serene places in the Holy Land. Overlooking the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee, it offers an enchanting vista of the northern part of the lake across to the cliffs of the Golan Heights on the other side.
Capernaum known as Jesus’ “own town” (Matt. 9:1) “walking where Jesus walked” takes on a thrilling new meaning. As you sit on the stone benches of Capernaum’s ancient synagogue, you’ll be reminded that right here, Jesus taught (Mark 1:21; John 6:59) and healed a man possessed by an evil spirit (Mark 1:23-27). It was the synagogue on this very spot, whose foundations you can still see, which Luke says was built by the centurion whose servant Jesus later healed (Luke 7:3-5). Jesus also raised the daughter of this synagogue’s leader from the dead (Luke 8:49-53).
According to the Book of Revelation, Armageddon will be the site of a gathering of armies for a battle during the end of times. The word “Armageddon” comes from a Hebrew word Har-Magedone, which means “Mount Megiddo” and has become synonymous with the future battle in which God will intervene and destroy the armies of the Antichrist, as predicted in biblical prophecy (Revelation 16:16; 20:1-3, 7-10). The most likely location is the hill country surrounding the plain of Megiddo, some sixty miles north of Jerusalem.
Yardenit is the unique site of baptism for Christian pilgrims, at the point where the Jordan River flows out of the Sea of Galilee and into the Dead Sea. Every year, over half a million believers from around the world visit the site. The baptismal site is located on the banks of the Jordan River between magnificent eucalyptus trees and natural river flora. It is an ideal spot for recollection in serenity and tranquility.
“In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens opened and the Spirit descending upon him like a dove, and a voice came from heaven; ‘Thou art my beloved Son, with thee I am well pleased.” Mark 1:9-11
The garden and sepulcher of Joseph of Arimathea, and therefore a possible site of the resurrection of Jesus. The Garden Tomb is a quiet place preserved for worship and reflection, with many places to sit and enjoy the surroundings and listen to the sounds of prayers of believers from all over the world.
