    This Less Strenuous Tour seeks to provide the opportunity to encounter the Biblical story on location.” This Tour involves walking and light hiking approximately 4-6 miles each day, with teaching on site before the Whole group. Our “Less Strenuous Tour”, however, is a trip with options. At certain sites, participants will be able to choose between a more rigorous hiking opportunities or a less vigorous hike. It is highly recommended that each participant prepare physically for this trip.

    Our study trips provide participants with experiences and insights into the culture, geography and history of the land of the Bible. Vital to this is walking the land as Jesus and his talmideds (disciples) did. The followers of Jesus not only learned with their eyes and ears but also with their feet. In so doing they grew into a close knit community. As we learn with our feet, the Word of God grows our perspective in new and exciting ways. Under the Fig Tree study experiences are not the typical “tours” where tourist sites drive the tour. We view our study trip ministry as a message to be experienced, one from which God will seek fruit. Signing on to travel with George will involve going to a variety of key biblical sites along with ones not found on typical tours. Our trip experiences include, the Negev and Judah wilderness, central and southern Jordan (Petra), north and central Galilee, Jerusalem and the old city, as well as traditional and non-traditional sites.

  • Your People Shall Be My People

    October 19 - 30, 2014
    Rabbi Thomson
    $4,295

    Patterned after the Book of Ruth, this tour will explore the special relationship between the Jewish people and those non-Jews who are grafted into them. Led by a Jewish rabbi, this one of a kind experience does more than talk about what it means the be “partakers in the rich root of the olive tree” (Romans 11). In the words of one pastor who has already experienced it, “...I was embraced as a part of a culture and the people of Israel... I was a part of an ancient people. The experience has changed me forever.” Like Ruth and Naomi, both Jews and non-Jews will join together in a discovery of what the God of Israel intended from the very beginning: A people redeemed from slavery to walk in free obedience toward Him.
