2019 Holy Land  Study Tour Information Walking with Jesus Through the Land of the Book October 22-30, 2019

After 35 years of guiding Bible students around the Lands of the Bible, Bonnie & I have found those key places in the Land of the Bible that so richly impacted our lives, we just have to make them part of your immersion into the Word God wrote, and into the Land God chose.

Scope: There are 30+ strategic Scriptural locations in Jerusalem and 30+ in Galilee that completely sum up everything needed to fit together the Complete Scope of Old & New Testament Books, and understand the Biblical, Historical, Geographic & Cultural context.

There is no place on earth like the Holy Land. It is a life changing experience to walk where the patriarchs wandered, where kings went to war, where prophets thundered God’s warnings, where a baby was born in a stable, and where a band of fishermen began to overturn the world. To travel to Israel is to visit the Land of the Book.

For over thirty years, Dr. John Barnett has been taking believers around the Holy Land to experience many places: from the coastal cities of the early New Testament church along the Mediterranean Sea to the inland deserts of Christ and the prophets; from Galilee to Jerusalem, from the caves and wadis of David’s life, to the synagogues of the Gospels—all the Land comes alive with truths from God’s Word.

Each of John’s Bible study tours are intentionally devotional. God’s Word is the textbook, the Biblical sites are the classroom, and the Spirit of God is the teacher. On the study tour we emphasize both personal Bible reading and Dr. Barnett’s careful exposition of the Word.

Theme: Seeing Christ in every part of God’s Word and the Holy Land. We will offer complete Scriptural, Historical, Geographic, and Cultural preparation. Each participant will receive the brand new three volume DVD set of the Life of Christ in the Holy Land (Who He Was, What He Did, Why He Came”) filmed on location with John narrating. No group has yet to follow this exciting new Christ-centered curriculum. Also, the study materials found in the MP3 library called: “Walking with Jesus through the Gospel by Mark” will be provided at the time of registration.

Dates: October 22-30, 2019; 9 days/8 nights. We will start in the lobby of the Mamilla Hotel in Jerusalem at 8 AM on Tuesday, October 22, 2019. We advise that you stay at that hotel the night before so that you are totally ready for leaving on the bus the next morning. Other hotels are available; but you will need to come to the Mamilla and store your luggage before we meet at 8AM for our orientation time for the first day’s touring.

Cost: about $3599, exact price TBD when the hotels update prices November 1. Usually these study tours have cost about $399 per day/per person for the past 4 years.

Land-Only: We are providing land only package prices again this year. That means we cover everything but lunches on all 9 days and 8 nights of the tour: hotels, guiding, all entrance fees to sites, transfer back to the airport on the final touring day, sumptuous breakfasts and dinners daily, but not airfare. However, our office is available to help participants with airfare options and arranging transfers to the first hotel.

Space: To maximize everyone’s experience in the Land, we limit our tour sizes to one comfortable spaced touring bus. We do, however, have space reserved for a maximum of 40 passengers to join us on each tour. Children age 12 and up are welcome.

Air Travel: It is very easy to book your own flight round trip right from your nearest airport to Israel. We will guide those who would like to arrive early to get rested for the trip, as well as those who wish to remain extra days in Jerusalem. All of those options are very readily arranged. Most pilgrims arrive a day before to start acclimating to the time zone change.

Deposits: The DTBM Tulsa office holds space with a deposit of $200 per person. If for any reason we cancel the trip, all payments are 100% refunded. If you cancel the trip, the $200 deposit will be credited as a donation to the DTBM ministry; and is tax-deductible. Registration forms are available by request, as are all of the tour details. If you’d like to check the hotels, they are all online and beautiful to tour from your computer.

BOTTOM LINE: Pray about our Land of the Book tour; we welcome you to join us next year in Jerusalem and Galilee.

Questions: Please email us at info@dtbm.org and we will try to explain anything else you need to know.


Pre-Tour Aegean Cruise(10/18-22): $1699

Join us for three days visiting Biblical sites in Patmos, Ephesus, and Crete. See the wonders of Ephesus where Paul stayed the longest and Patmos from where Jesus sent His last words to the Church. Explore Crete and the amazing Epistle to Titus with the curriculum God gave to be taught to every member of His Church. We will also see the sublime beauty of Mykonos & Santorini.

Life & Letters Bus Tour (10/22-28): $2299

For seven days we start each day at a fresh new site directly out of God’s Word. We walk through the Scriptures and see how the context of the Roman World illustrates the truths God’s Spirit inspired Paul to write down in each of his Epistles.
Two vital resources: a detailed overview of all options and a step-by-step travel planner and trip preparation is available on request. Just email me at jb@dtbm.org and we will send that to you. That pre-trip countdown guide explains all of the online resources and study materials for maximum preparation.

Everything happened somewhere: and the locations God used to communicate His Holy Scriptures are amazing. Sit in the Agora of Corinth and see the context of the Epistle to the Romans. Walk the streets of Ephesus and hear the crowd chanting from Acts 19. Feel the actual pavers of the Via Egnatia beneath your feet and ponder the thousands of miles of Paul’s missionary journeys.
