Day 4 - Jericho, Qumran & Garden of Gethsemane

Travel to Jericho and visit the ruins of the ancient city, which was conquered by
Joshua (Josh. 6: 1, 2, 20). From Jericho, you can see the traditional site of the
Temptation of Jesus (Matt. 4: 1-11). Even today, the road from Jericho to Jerusalem
twists for miles as it climbs from below sea level into the Judean mountains. Jesus
traveled the nearby Roman road, the setting of His parable of the Good Samaritan
(Luke 10: 30-36). Travel to Qumran, site of the Dead Sea Scroll discovery, to discuss
the mysterious community of Essenes who once lived on the shores of the Dead Sea.
Stand atop the Mount of Olives as Jesus did and enjoy a remarkable view of the
“Golden City” of Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount and Dome of the Rock. Forty
days after his resurrection, Jesus ascended into heaven from the Mount of Olives
(Acts 1: 9 - 12). Pray in the Garden of Gethsemane as Jesus prayed (Matt. 26: 36 - 44).
