Join this Unforgettable Journey with Big Daddy Weave Hosted by Northwestern Media
Come join us as we tour the world of Jesus! We’ll visit Nazareth, Capernaum, Jerusalem and more, all of the most important places of the gospel stories. We’ll share about each place we visit as we talk about the text, studying as we go. This will be a pilgrimage journey like those of old, when Jesus and his family went to the Temple to meet with God. You, too, will meet with God in the Holy Land, and you will never be the same afterward.
To travel to the places of the New Testament is to make the Bible come to life. You will never read the Gospels the same way again. When you read of Nazareth or Capernaum, the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan, Jerusalem and the Desert of Judea, it will all play across the screen in your mind— because you will have been there! You will now know the world of Jesus, and to know that world is to grow closer to the Savior who walked its paths and called us to be his people.
Come and join us!

Imagine you are Peter and John who have just been told by Mary Magdalene that she saw Jesus—alive! You don’t really believe her so you have a foot-race to the tomb to see for yourselves. Out of breath, you bend down to look into the stone tomb . . .
Like Peter and John, you don’t have to take others’ word for Jesus resurrection. You can see for yourself that the tomb is empty when you join us at Northwestern Media on a once-in-a-lifetime journey to Israel. Come walk with us where Jesus walked. Experience the Bible coming to life. Watch how God deepens your faith.
Someone has said when you read the Bible at home you see events unfold in black and white, but when you visit Israel you experience events in 3-D color! Join us on the Israel tour March 5 – 15, 2015 and let God use the vibrant colors of the Bible to change you forever.

Home of the Bible
Israel is a place where hidden oases are tucked away amid windswept deserts, where rocky cliffs are carved by ancient rivers and where historical ruins lie within sight of modern architecture. A melting pot of religion, culture and spiritual depth, a Christian tour to Israel is far more than a typical vacation. It is a journey into the origins of belief—one that will connect your faith today with the depth and power of the Christian story. For followers of Christ, a trip to the Holy Land is a once-in-a-lifetime experience in a place that doesn’t just bring the Bible to life, but adds a visual dimension to the beliefs you’ve staked your life upon.
Visit the places of the Bible to see where Jesus lived, walked and where His disciples began sharing the Gospel of His love.
