Value Revisited LDS Israel Tour | Israel Revealed

"Just super! Very spiritual. (Daniel) Exceeded expectations."

Skip & Diane Chase (Santa Clara, UT)

The joy of the Holy Land is in the feeling that comes from remembering the events that took place here. Great events were caused by humble prophets, and men wanting to be great were caused to be humble. This land was chosen by God to be the place for the revelation of truth. Abraham was sent here to establish the true worship of God. A religion and culture developed that would be spread to the surrounding lands and peoples, and thus Israel became the spiritual and temporal crossroads of the East. It is remarkable that such a little land had such a great effect on history.

One of the "greatest experiences of your life" commences with your flight connecting into Tel-Aviv (Israel).

(For those arriving over the Jordan River, from one of the Optional Additional Programs, clear security, go through passport control, collect your luggage and exit the arrivals hall. Upon exiting the arrivals hall look for your driver, with your name placard, and proceed 'Up to Jerusalem')

Insights of the Day

  • The Savior told a story of a Levite and a Priest, and of a Samaritan (who ended up extending himself past his ethnic identity, saving a life).

Sites of the Day:

Tel Dan (Headwaters of the Jordan, Israelite Gate & Temple) find Caesarea Philippi - The Golan Heights - Nazareth Village (A Reconstruction of 1st Century Village Life)

Insights of the Day

  • The Savior, at the Headwaters of the Jordan River, asked, “Whom do men say that I am?” . . . here he named Simon “Rocky” (Peter).
  • The same water turning the millstones, grinding and producing bread, maintained life.
  • The ‘Fountain of Living Waters”, bearing the weight of our millstones, gives us life.
  • Quarries and Stone Rejected

Sites of the Day:

Acco (A Crusader Port City) - Haifa (Templar Cemetery) - Haifa (Panorama) - Mount Carmel (Elijah & the Priest of Baal) - The Jezreel (Armageddon) Valley - Tel Megiddo

Insights of the Day

  • In Acco the unearthed crusader Knights and Templar Tunnel - underground escape routes - reveal the corruption of religion as monks became warriors prompting a wake-up call to the original meaning of “Onward Christian Soldiers.”
  • A modern city rising on a dew-endowed Mount Carmel, becomes the resting place of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as well as Bahai members. Learn how the feelings of brotherhood can replace persecution.

  • “Whose God is the real God?” - is answered by Elijah through a contest with the priests of Baal.
  • Name an army that has attempted to control the Middle east and realize they fought in the Armageddon Valley.
  • Tel-Megiddo was the creative idea for Michener’s book, “The Source.” The Prophet Harold B. Lee spoke insightfully about the “battle staging ground” that turned into the “breadbasket of Israel.”

The Temple and Living Waters

(Grasping antiquities’ awesomeness walking in ancient ruins and sifting ancient dust and dirt through your toes and fingers)

Church of the Holy Sepulchre Jerusalem LDS Tours


Israel's landscapes are as varied as her people, with ocean and seas, plains and mountains. It is green, and there is water! It is a good land, where Jews, Moslems, and Christians raise their families. A feeling of peace and youthful growth exists even though its history is almost as old as civilization - a country more than 50 years old, going on to five thousand years old and conquered close to 30 times.

Mount of Olives LDS Tour

The conquerors have included (alphabetically), Arabs, Assyrians, Babylonians, Canaanites, Crusaders, Egyptians, French, Greeks, Hyksos, Hittites, Israelites, Jebusites, Mamelukes, Meads, Persians, Philistines, Romans, Syrians, and Turks. The people that continue to live in this land are the remaining Jews and the Arabs.
