    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.

  • Israel in Depth

    Bill Geisel
    $3,895

    When Jesus said He was The Way in John 14, He meant more than is seen at first glance. When we learn in the places where He taught and the culture of His people, we begin to understand His teaching in depth. Come and walk the ancient Land of Israel and discover why His early followers were called The Way and how that can change your life now!

    Bill first studied in Israel in 1998 and has been teaching groups there since 2000. He currently pastors a fellowship of passionate disciples in the greater Knoxville, TN area. Utilizing insights gained through the historic context of the Jewish roots of the Christian faith, Bill brings a deepened perspective on important relationships and Kingdom issues. He also is a missionary in the role of Tennessee State Minister with Capitol Commission, whose mission is to serve state leaders and their staff through Bible study, pastoral support and sharing the Good News of the Gospel.

    Legacy Path :

    The Israel Experience

    "Thus says the Lord: Stand by the roads and look and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it and find rest for your souls."

    – Jeremiah 6:16

    Heritage, influence, purpose, and legacy.

    These ideas were hard wired into the hearts of men and women by the Lord alone. Join me as we walk the ancient paths of our Christian heritage seeking to understand the roots of our Christian faith. Discover the places of influence where God placed people of the Bible like Abraham, Samson, Hezekiah, and David. Traverse the hills of Galilee and connect with the life and ministry of Jesus and his disciples. Travel the streets of Jerusalem and contemplate the legacy of faith beginning with Abraham and fulfilled in the resurrection of Christ extending into your life. Understand the grander purposes of God as they are revealed in the history, archaeology, geography, and culture of the Scriptures. As we experience Israel with the Biblical text as our guide, open your eyes to understand the Scriptures through its eastern context maybe for the first time. All along the way consider your own faith as you are challenged to understand the paths of God in your own life and to leave a lasting legacy.
