Description

Hiking the Jesus Trail is a once in a lifetime experience for every Christian. The Jesus Trail passes through Nazareth, Cana, the Mount of Beatitudes, the Sea of Galilee and Capernaum. You can be baptized in the Jordan River, climb Mount Tabor and ascend Mount Precipice. The journey ends in Jerusalem. You will visit the Church of the Visitation, the Room of the Last Supper, Gethsemane, the Tomb of Mary, the Via Dolorosa and the Holy Sepulchre. Bethlehem is only ten kilometers from the trail.Pilgrims frequently describe their hike in the Holy Land as a life-altering experience. Some find it difficult to express the bliss they feel during this spiritual journey. After their hike of the trail, a group of pilgrims from Italy wrote: "When we completed the hike of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela (Way of St. James) we were excited. But it was nothing compared to what we felt when we ended our hike of the Land of Jesus at the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. We were elated, crying with joy and blessing the Lord for our journey."The Jesus Trail guide contains all the information you need to independently walk the Trail connecting New Testament sites in the Galilee and Jerusalem.
