Day 6: Shephelah - Israel Confronts Other Cultures/Gods

Israel's conflict with her neighbours as well as her internal tribal conflict is the focus of today. You will study the relationships between Biblical sites and the lives of such historical figures as King Hezekiah (Tel Lakhish), the cellars of Beth Guvrin, David and Goliath (Tel Azekah) and Sampson (Beth Shemesh). You will see where God challenged and delivered His people in unexpected ways. Be prepared for some "aha!" moments. On this day, we complete our journey in the Negev desert and move north into the area of the Galilee. Dinner and Overnight at a kibbutz in the Galilee.
