Day 5: Judean Wilderness - David's & Jesus' World

Our hike into the springs of Ein Gedi furthers our understanding of how the Israelites viewed God as the source of living water, not to mention life itself. The morning will be dedicated to the study of some of the stories of King David. You will be awed by where he led both his sheep and his “mighty men”. During the afternoon, at Qumran, you will be intrigued by a glimpse into the beliefs of the Essenes, to whom we are indebted for the copying and protection of the Scriptures (Dead Sea Scrolls). Dinner and Overnight at the Dead Sea.
