Join this Unforgettable Christian Tour to Israel with Kay Arthur and Precept Ministries
One of the greatest joys in my life is to take people to Israel and teach them God’s Word! To actually study the Bible on-site, in the places where the patriarchs, our Savior, and His disciples lived is truly remarkable.
Beloved, our upcoming Israel Bible Study Tour in May 2015 will mark 40 years of leading Bible Study Tours to Israel and we want you to join us for this extra special occasion! We will study the Bible together and explore the land of the Book! And I also want to encourage you to join us for the special Jordan extension after the Israel Tour. Everything on this tour is carefully chosen by our expert team who have decades of experience leading tours. This 12–day tour will allow you to totally consume yourself in the land of the Bible and interact with the people.
Come join us! Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the Holy Land. Imagine studying the Book of Revelation at Megiddo and seeing the valley of Armageddon where the armies of the world will be gathered together against Jerusalem. Imagine standing on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, walking the streets of Jerusalem, spending time in prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane and taking communion at the Garden Tomb. There are so many events and outstanding places you don’t want to miss.
I will be there with my son, David, and Precept Staff. Together we’ll study the Bible, fellowship, laugh, pray, and worship together. Words are inadequate to describe the experience of touring this precious land. Nothing can bring the Bible to life like studying in the land where history was written. You will experience an added depth to your faith like never before.
You, my friend, will truly never be the same!

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.
