Millions of people around the world have been forced into isolation as part of the global effort to stop the deadly coronavirus pandemic. Since no tourists are allowed in Israel during this time, CBN News is bringing Israel to you.
We are inviting you to join our virtual tour series and see Israel's most fascinating sites from the comfort of your own home. Ride with us on the Sea of Galilee, walk the ancient pilgrimage road to that Jesus once walked, and visit ancient Shiloh.
This virtual tour page features archaeological sites and history from the time of Jesus and before.
The coronavirus can't stop this incredible journey. Watch the Bible come alive with us. Come back here every day to see a new story added to this tour page.
Today's Tour: The Christian bond with Israel goes way back, before the Jewish State was even established. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu credited Christian Zionists with a crucial role in founding the modern State of Israel.

The story of Palestinian refugees and their “Right of Return” has been told in much of the world’s media. But did you know there’s another seldom told story. After the re-birth of the state of Israel in 1948, Arab countries in the Middle East expelled hundreds of thousands of Jews from their homes.
