In the Footsteps of King Herod

From his home town of Maresha to the battles that made him king at Arbel, Herodion and Masada, to his palaces in Jerusalem and Jericho, his great building projects at Caesarea and Hebron and of course the Temple in Jerusalem, to his family tomb in Jerusalem and his own in Herodion, we’ll get a sense of just who was this mad king and why was he out to kill the baby Jesus.

In the Footsteps of the Hebrew Bible

From the forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (and the foremothers Sarah, Rebecca, Leah and Rachel) to the leaders Moses and Joshua, the judges Deborah, Samson and Samuel, the kings Saul, David and Solomon and the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah, just to name a few, this is the land of the Bible and we can walk Bible in hand and watch all the stories come to life.
