8 Days Footsteps of Christ Holy Land Tour to Israel

13 reviews
Join us on a spiritual journey focusing on the Life and times of Jesus, “walking where Jesus walked.” Imagine yourself in the Galilee, and in Capernaum – referred as Jesus “own town” (Matthew 9:1), where Jesus began his ministry (Mark 1:21 John 6:59), and recruited his first disciple (John 21:15-17). Stand on the Mt. of Beatitudes (Matthew 5, Matthew 6, Matthew 7, Matthew 8) and make believe you are listening to the Lord preach the Sermon on the Mount. Submerge yourself in the Jordan River, where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist (John 1:29-33). Continue on to the Golden City of Jerusalem, and walk the Stations of the Cross on the Via Dolorosa, where you can take time to reflect the Lords sacrifice for all of us, and what an incredible moment it will be when you stand on the Mt. of Olives in Jerusalem, where Jesus ascended in to heaven (acts 1). We invite you not just on another trip, but a spiritual journey you will never forget.

A small walk from the main road, and you'll find this nonstop spring, who floats all the time. The water is cold and refreshing at hot days, but not so good for drink.

Mary’s Spring, or the Fountain of the Virgin, is located at the bottom of the hill leading to the Church of the Visitation. Tradition says that Mary stopped here to drink from the freshwater spring on her journey to visit her cousin, Elizabeth. A small mosque, now abandoned, was built over the spring in the mid-1800's. While the water is still flowing, it is NOT safe to drink. We took a quick photo and continued up the hill to the church.

This site is open to the public, in the center of the village a stream on top of which a Mosque was built many years ago. The Muslim residents of the town fled in Israel's war of independence, so the Mosque is not operational now and serves as a land mark. The water flows from a pier coming from under the building. The source of the water has gone bad and the water is not safe for drinking. Ein Kerem has a number of Churches and Christian traditions of events of the New Testament that took place here. It is a very beautiful place to visit and has religious significance for Christians.

This small spring where it said that the Virigin Mary stopped to drink while visisting Elizabeth. it was taken over by the Arabs in the area and they turned it into a mosque with a water fountain at front ( very common in the Mosque builidngs to leave a water spout for free to the passwr by, called Sabeel). after 1948 war, the arbs were relocated out of Ein Karem and the mosque was closed. it is now an area of hip upscale Jewish comminuity. Do not drink the water from this sprink as it is not purified.
