Royal Rangers on a Holy Land Adventure

January 14, 2020

Have you found yourself reading the stories of the Bible and imagining what the landscape, people, and locations would have looked like? Do you find yourself picturing what the Valley of Elah would have looked like with the Philistines on one side and the Israelites on the other as Goliath stepped out of his ranks and challenged someone to meet him for a fight? What if you didn’t have to imagine but could see the places in person? You CAN!

Join Karl and Cindy Fleig, national director, and Royal Rangers from across the nation for the 2021 Royal Rangers Holy Land Adventure. This 11-day trip will take you on a life-changing journey of the Holy Land. The adventure will start months before as you are challenged to read key passages out of Scripture in preparation for places you will visit. You will be thrilled to walk the very paths the champions of our faith did so long ago. Your Bible reading will never be the same once you become familiar with the land in which so much of our Scriptures took place. On this adventure, you will visit the following locations:

  • Beersheva, the city Abraham and his descendants lived in
  • Desert the Israelites wandered in for 40 years under the leadership of Moses
  • Valley of Elah where David faced off with Goliath
  • Caesarea where Cornelius, a Roman centurion, became the first Gentile believer
  • Mount Carmel where Elijah held a contest with 450 prophets of Baal
  • Ancient cities and the first century synagogue where Jesus taught
  • Capernaum, the place of residence for Jesus’ adult life and ministry
  • Caesarea Philippi
  • Mount Hermon where Jesus was transfiguration
  • Ein Gedi where David hid when he was running from King Saul
  • Ancient city of David and the Pool of Siloam
  • Ruins of Masada

On this trip you will be able to float in the Dead Sea; get baptized in the Jordan River; explore the impressive first century water aqueducts; see the actual Dead Sea Scrolls; spend time in personal prayer at the Western Wall; learn about ancient architecture, walls, and gates; take an evening boat ride on the Sea of Galilee; trek through the desert on camels, experiencing Bedouin hospitality; and so much more.

On the last day, we will stop at the Garden of Gethsemane, reflecting on where Jesus agonized, submitting to His Father’s will. We will visit the vicinity of the palace of Herod the Great and its praetorium. Walking to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, we will see the site of Jesus’ crucifixion, burial, and resurrection. We will end our adventure with prayer and communion at a 1st century rolling stone tomb before heading back home, forever changed with a new appreciation for God’s Word and His gift to us.
