Jesus's Sermon on the Mount is believed to have been delivered on the Sea of Galilee's northwestern shore.

So the Lord gave Israel all the land He had sworn to give their ancestors, they took possession of it and settled there. - Joshua 21:43 (NIV)

Can you imagine walking in Jesus’ footsteps? Taking a journey back over 2,000 years ago to where Jesus walked. We’ve all thought of it, but why not make it a reality? We invite you to take a closer look at the five most important sites any Christian should visit in Israel. Let the adventure begin… 


Nazareth's Church of the Anunciation

Your first stop will be the childhood home of Jesus. As you stroll the streets, you can’t help but feel the presence of Jesus with every step. The city is beautifully filled with dozens of inspiring places of interest that commemorate Biblical events. The ancient city of Nazareth is a must see for any Christian tourist looking to be overwhelmed by the spirit of God and amazing new experiences.


 “Then Jesus went from Galilee to the Jordan River to be baptized by John.” - Matthew 3:13 (NLT)

Find yourself here, reflecting peacefully as the water drifts by knowing that the Jordan River claimed witness to Jesus’s baptism. You yourself can be baptized here at the Yardenit baptismal site. In addition to finding peace and serenity here, adventure-seekers alike plot out breathtaking daily hikes, water sports and natural reserves.


 “The LORD be praised from Zion, for He lives here in Jerusalem. Praise the LORD!” - Psalm 135:21 (NLT)

 The holy capital of Israel is as important to Christianity as Nazareth. Set foot in the city of Jerusalem and you can’t help but feel the deep, indescribable bond that it has with Jesus. This city is filled with raw beauty and ancient secrets, home to dozens or religious and historic locations to visit.


 “This miraculous sign at Cana in Galilee was the first time Jesus revealed His glory. And his disciples believed in him.” - John 2:11 (NLT)

 Take an inspiring journey back in time with us to the village of Cana. A time where Jesus performed his first miracle: turning water into wine at a poor couple’s wedding. This small village welcomes over 200,000 tourists every year for the scenic views, beautiful promenade, and for some, to renew their wedding vows. 


Sea of Galilee

One of the most captivating locations to visit in Israel is the Sea of Galilee for many reasons. From the astounding nearby mountains to the gorgeous shoreline, the views in itself are enough to bring travelers from all over. It’s not just the views though. The Sea of Galilee is where Jesus gathered his first disciples and walked on water. Visit and you will see how special the Sea is, as you gaze upon the same views that Jesus did and our wish is that you find some of the same inspiration He did.
