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. On this day, we complete our journey in the Negev Desert and move north to the area of the Galilee. You will study the relationships between Biblical sites and the lives of such historical figures as Rehobaom and 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. Dinner and Overnight at a kibbutz in the Galilee.
