This course offers an exciting opportunity for pilgrims who wish to experience the land from an entirely different perspective: walking. The course will spend five days following segments of the Jesus Trail in the Galilee (see www.jesustrail.com) from Sepphoris (Zippori) near Nazareth to Capernaum, staying each night in a guest house or hotel along the way.
All along the walk, the biblical landscape, towns, history, and archaeology will be presented and worship will be conducted. Course members will experience the closest thing we have to the pilgrimages of old that involved long distances of walking, reflection, and community-building.
In Galilee the course will focus on the life and ministry of Jesus, while in Jerusalem the final week of Jesus’ life will form the backdrop for visits, walks in the Holy City, and prayer. Students will be able to rest in the comfort of St. George’s College and the Cathedral Close before returning home.
