For thousands of years, no place has been more meaningful to God’s children than the land of Israel. God used the geography and events of Israel to shape the lives of His people in the Bible—and He is doing the same today.
Israel’s rugged landscape invites you to find refuge in God alone. The fertile valleys remind you to follow your Shepherd to places of rest. Jerusalem’s position at the center of the world announces that God is in charge of the nations. Visiting the Holy Land is an unforgettable, life-enriching, faith-deepening experience. Every time I’ve had the privilege to go, I have returned home personally changed . . . really, every time.
I want you to have the same life-changing experience!
That’s why we’ve uniquely planned the Insight for Living Ministries 2018 Israel Tour to be a journey of faith. The people we’ll meet, the songs we’ll sing, the sites we’ll see, and the talented guests who will serve us have been carefully chosen to make the Bible come alive and draw us closer to God.
In keeping with our commitment to communicate biblical truth in a practical way, we will provide you with insightful Bible-study materials to help you prepare for each site. And to help you grasp each location’s biblical and historical significance, we’ll bring along a highly qualified team of professors from Dallas Theological Seminary to complement our handpicked Israeli guides. No organization I know of offers this level of instruction and inspiration for Holy Land travelers.
All along the way, I will be teaching from God’s Word at biblically significant locations. We’ll worship at the Mount of Beatitudes where Jesus taught His Sermon on the Mount. Gifted artists will lead us in musical and dramatic presentations in the same amphitheater where kings sat and where the apostle Paul stood on trial near the shores of the Mediterranean. We’ll sail the Sea of Galilee together. We’ll visit places where Jesus proclaimed the gospel, taught His disciples, and healed the sick. Our hearts will be knit together in one profound experience after another, culminating when we share the Lord’s Table at the intimate Garden Tomb in Jerusalem.
If you’ve ever longed to visit Israel, I urge you to take advantage of this outstanding opportunity. To top it off, 2018 is the year the state of Israel celebrates its 70th birthday. What a historic time to visit! I urge you to make your reservation soon, due to our limited space. As always, we expect an overwhelming response . . . and I don’t want you to miss out.
So, examine this brochure. Then seriously pray about joining us. Dream a little. Imagine walking along those sacred sites. Let’s start planning for the trip of a lifetime together!
Anticipating great things ahead,
Charles R. Swindoll
