DAY 5: NAZARETH (BAPTIST SCHOOL) / CROSS TO JORDAN / AJLOUN (BAPTIST CENTER)


Nazareth Baptist School, considered one of the finest primary and secondary schools in Israel, is our first stop today. Hear about the history and vision of this outstanding institution established by Baptists many years ago in our Lord’s hometown. We then make our way to Nazareth Village, a rec- reation of a first-century village. Lunch on site— a meal much like the inhabitants of Nazareth in the 1st century. Then cross over into Jordan to Ajloun Baptist Center for dinner and a time of


worship and an opportunity to hear a brief history of this important place in Baptist history. Over- night at the Ajloun Baptist Center. (B,L,D)


DAY 6: UMM QAYS / JERASH


Umm Qays, our first destination, is the old Decapolis city of Gadara, where Jesus encoun- tered the demonic living in the tombs. From here overlook the Sea of Galilee in Israel, Mt. Hermon in Lebanon, and the Golan Heights of Syria. Next stop is Jerash, another city of Decapolis. The spectacular Roman ruins comprise one of the best- preserved provincial cities in the world. Hidden for centuries, and only recently excavated, this “Rome away from Rome” with its temples and colonnades is an awe-inspiring site. Dinner and overnight at the Ajloun Baptist Center. (B,D)
