- Day 1 – Jerusalem
- Day 2 – Cana and Gideon Springs
- Day 3 – Sea of Galilee
- Day 4 – Capernaum and Mount of Beatitudes
Perched on the edge of the Judean Wilderness, Jericho serves as a crossroads, both now and throughout history. Jewish pilgrims traveled these roads on their way from the Galilee area to the feasts in Jerusalem. Merchants traveled this was as they made their way up through Damascus and beyond. But it was also a dangerous passage due to steep cliffs and lots of hiding places for robbers.
This is the scene of the Good Samaritan. Watch and listen to the lessons of this place.
