Samaria – Sebastia – Nablus

Samaria – Sebastia – Nablus (Shechem) – Mt Gerizim – Beit El (Bethel)

After getting the bags into the bus and breakfast, we travel south to Jerusalem going the way of Jesus through Samaria. The tour in Nablus starts with a visit to the beautiful church at Jacob’s Well where Jesus once asked a Samaritan woman for a drink (John 4:1-26). We then make our way to the Samaritan’s hilltop village on Mount Gerizim where a small community of Samaritans still living there, who trace their origins back to Aaron, the son of Moses. You’ll visit their museum, have a conversation with a priest and walk up to the site of their ancient temple. We will then we proceed to Beit El (Bethel), the dream site of Jacob where he saw the ladder ascending into Heaven. We will enter Jerusalem through Ramallah and onto our hotel for dinner and overnight.
