HISTORICAL SITES IN ISRAEL
Don't miss the MONASTERIES in the JUDEAN DESERT, Israel where you can Walk in the Footsteps of the Bible. Desert monasteries began in fourth-century Egypt, as Byzantine monks sought to return to simplicity and to emulate the profits, John the Baptist and Jesus. Ever since Moses and Elijah communed with God in the wilderness. Seekers of spiritual fulfillment, whether prophets or ordinary folk, found all that they needed here.
