The Overview

“See the Good Land” is the theme of this tour, which is undoubtedly the most comprehensive theocratic Biblical tour of Israel available. We secured the services of a local Israeli Tour Guide considered by past BCT travelers and current BCT Tour Guides alike to be the best,
“See the Good Land” is the theme of this tour, which is undoubtedly the most comprehensive theocratic Biblical tour of Israel available.

We secured the services of a local Israeli Tour Guide considered by past BCT travelers and current BCT Tour Guides alike to be the best, with over 40 years experience of guiding and archaeology in Israel. In addition, our highly experienced theocratic guides will be Tim Martin from Brooklyn who will also present several re-enactments and readings from the Scriptures in what is thought to be the authentic sites. You can volunteer to take part in those exciting dramas!

Also included is the BCT unique theocratic tour of the Israel Museum, with some amazing and faith-building artifacts. This museum is the largest cultural institution in the State of Israel and is ranked among the leading art and archaeology museums in the world. The Shrine of the Book is the home of several exceptional archaeological finds including the Dead Sea Scrolls and other rare ancient manuscripts.

Every year, archaeologists are discovering an amazing number of new features from ancient Israel; in our most recent trips we have been to the newly unearthed real Pool of Siloam (next door to what was previously thought to be it); the channels mentioned by Josephus where people tried to hide from the destruction in 70 CE; the astonishing ‘Burnt House’ from 70CE; underneath the Temple all the way down to bedrock and quarry; walked through the tunnels from Hezekiah and David’s times; marvelled at the open-air Biblical Landscape Museum giving insight into details of the natural world there; and the ‘ancient’ Nazareth Village complete with carpenters shop, shepherds and watchtower; walked exactly where Jesus walked, in Capernaum and Jerusalem (on the same actual stones); went to Jesus baptism site in the Jordan; and where the Israelites probably crossed into Israel…

…spent an authentic evening having dinner with Abraham in the Judean desert, at sunset; saw the home of Dead Sea Scrolls as well as where they were found; bought some real Widows Mites; walked around Masada which has many newly opened ancient features; watched many films which helped greatly to fit each site into place both historically and topographically; walked through each bustling quarter of old Jerusalem, enjoying many local meals whilst absorbing the wonderful old charm of the place; had free time to enjoy old Jerusalem with our new Israel Trip family.
