Join Ancient Path Disciple-Making and Pastor Joel Zaborowski on a life-of-Christ study tour that chronologically walks the ancient disciple-making path of Christ.  You will discover the where, why, and what Jesus did at specific times during His life and ministry that developed disciple-makers and built a disciple-making movement.  We begin in Jerusalem and other parts of Judea like the Jordan River, Judean desert, and the Dead Sea.  Then we make our way north through Samaria and on into Galilee for several days at many forested and mountain locations, along with millennia-old archeological sites that are part of Jesus’ disciple-making ancient path.  We conclude by heading back to Jerusalem for the betrayal, arrest, trial, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ and birth of His church through His disciples.  On this tour we also find time to float in the Dead Sea and see the Dead Sea scrolls at the Jerusalem Museum.  There is disciple-making training at all 35 of the sites we visit, and there is a required-reading book prior to arrival for all participants.  This tour will equip you for disciple-making ministry.

Life of Christ Disciple-Making Study Tour

Day 1 (SEPT 14)- Beginning of Tour. depart from USA for an overnight flight to Tel Aviv.

Day 2 (SEPT 15)- We will arrive in Tel Aviv and transport by bus to Jerusalem where we stay at the Gloria hotel right inside the walls of the Old City (incredible location).

Day 3 (SEPT 16)-We begin the study tour with a geographical orientation by getting a visual and biblical overview of the city of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives and the Jerusalem Museum where you will see a scale model of first-century Jerusalem.  You will get to see the Dead Sea Scrolls at the museum before we head to Bethlehem to visit the Church of the Nativity and then disciple-making training at the Shepherd’s Field.  We complete the day at the Gloria hotel and invite people to visit shops in the Old City after dinner.

Day 4 (SEPT 17)- Herodium is one of King Herod the Great's palaces.  It is located between Jerusalem and Bethlehem and is our first stop of the day.  We then go to the Jordan River near the Dead Sea, where Jesus began His disciple-making path by being baptized by John the Baptist.  After lunch at Qumran (where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered), we then head to the Judean Wilderness where Jesus spent His next 40 days.  We hike 4 miles of the Wadi Kelt (the Valley of the Shadow of Death from Psalm 23) for an up-close, unforgettable view of the desert.  You will again enjoy an evening at the Gloria in Jerusalem. Lunch in Jericho.

Day 5 (SEPT 18)- We walk through the Old City of Jerusalem to begin the day on the Temple Mount.  After a quick stop to experience St. Anne’s Church, we see a pivotal moment in the disciple-making ministry of Jesus at the Pool of Bethesda.  We then experience the Western Wall (also called the Wailing Wall) before you can experience a variety of lunch options in the Old City.  After lunch, we momentarily divert from the chronology of Christ to explore Hezekiah’s Tunnel and the City of David.  You again get to enjoy the evening at the Gloria and experience the Old City and streets of modern Jerusalem.

Day 6 (SEPT 19)- We depart early and travel north to Jacob’s Well in Samaria, where Jesus modeled evangelism to His disciples.  After grabbing sack lunches on our continued trek north, we land in the ancient city of Sepphoris, which was a capitol city of Herod Antipas.  We will see first-century structures and streets where Jesus and His father Joseph were likely builders.  From Sepphoris it is a short 4-mile drive to Nazareth, where we experience authentic first-century Galilean life in the Nazareth Village, followed by training at the Nazareth Precipice, which provides an amazing overlook of the Jezreel Valley (valley of Armageddon).  We finish this long day with supper and great lodging in Tiberius right on the Sea of Galilee. Lunch at Nazareth Village.

Day 7 (SEPT 20)- Capernaum was the home base of Jesus’ disciple-making ministry, so we begin here at Peter’s house and an ancient synagogue where Jesus began equipping His disciples to be “fishers of men.”  We then take a nice walk on “the King’s Highway” to the Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus chose and installed his 12 apostles.  After an amazing fish dinner on the Sea, you will enjoy an excellently preserved synagogue in the excavations of ancient Corazim.  We then walk the ruins of Bethsaida where you have a great view of the hillside where Jesus fed the 5,000.  This long day concludes with dinner and relaxing at the hotel or exploring the city of Tiberius.

Day 8 (SEPT 21)- Enjoy a morning boat ride on the Sea of Galilee after we see the “Jesus Boat,” which is a first-century boat discovered in the mud in 1986 when the water level of the Sea of Galilee was low.  We exit the boat on the eastern shore and travel to Kursi where Jesus cast demons from a possessed man among the tombs.  After taking the bus back to the western side of the Sea for lunch, we visit the ruins of Magdala and Magdala’s Chapel where we learn of Jesus’ women disciples from Luke 8:1-3.  Dinner is again at the hotel in Tiberius. Lunch at Peter Fish Restaurant.

Day 9 (SEPT 22)- After a beautiful bus ride north, we are treated to a walking tour of the ancient city of Tel Dan, where we divert momentarily from the ancient path of Christ to learn an important “heart lesson” for disciple-makers from a disturbing Old Testament city inhabited by the tribe of Dan.  At nearby Caesarea Philippi we will get an up-close look at “the Gates of Hell” that will not stop the church Christ is building, and also observe Mount Hermon where the Transfiguration of Christ took place.  After lunch at a beautiful reservoir in the Golan Heights, we conclude the day on Mount Arbel where Jesus likely gave His Great Commission.  Dinner is again at the hotel in Tiberius.

Day 10 (SEPT 23)- Our final day in Galilee begins at the Church of the Primacy in Capernaum where Jesus restored Peter three times after Peter’s three denials of Christ.  We then drive south to the ancient ruins of Beth Shean, which is one of the ten cities of the Decapolis.  We enjoy lunch in Jericho and begin to follow the ascent of Jesus to Jerusalem for Holy Week after discovering interesting insight about Zacchaeus in Jericho.  You get to enjoy the afternoon floating in the Dead Sea for a couple of hours at Kalia Beach before we arrive for dinner back at the Gloria in Jerusalem.

Day 11 (SEPT 24)- We put in several foot-miles today, beginning with a walk to the Upper Room and then follow the path of Christ through the Old City to cross the Kidron Valley to the Garden of Gethsemane.  After a time of reflection in Gethsemane, we bus to Caiaphas’ House where Jesus was imprisoned and faced three trials.  After lunch on your own in the Old City, we walk to the Antonio Fortress where Jesus was on trial before Pontius Pilate.  We then walk the Via Delarosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher before returning to the Gloria for Dinner.

Day 12 (SEPT 25)- Our final day of the study tour begins with a walk to the Garden Tomb to celebrate communion together.  We then bus to Observation Mount on the Mount of Olives to consider the return of Christ.  The day and study tour concludes in the morning at the southern steps of the Temple Mount, where the apostles launched the church by proclaiming the gospel of Christ and baptized 3,000.  Lunch is on your own in the Old City, and you have free time the rest of the day.

Day 13 (SEPT 26)- The bus leaves Jerusalem for Tel Aviv to catch our flight.
