Our study trips provide participants with experiences and insights into the culture, geography and history of the land of the Bible. Vital to this is walking the land as Jesus and his talmidim (disciples) did. The followers of Jesus not only learned with their eyes and ears but also with their feet. In so doing they grew into a close net community. As we learn with our feet, the Word of God grows our perspective in new and exciting ways.

Under the Fig Tree study experience are not the typical “tours” where tourist sites drive the tour. We view our study trip ministry as a message to be experienced, one from which God will seek fruit. Signing on to travel with George will involve going to a variety of key biblical sites along with ones not found on typical tours.

Our trip experiences include visiting upper and lower Egypt (pyramids), the Sinai, the Negev and Judah wilderness, central and southern Jordan (Petra), north and central Galilee, Jerusalem and the old city, as well as traditional and non-traditional sites

Legacy Path :

The Israel Experience

"Thus says the Lord: Stand by the roads and look and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it and find rest for your souls."

– Jeremiah 6:16

Heritage, influence, purpose, and legacy.

These ideas were hard wired into the hearts of men and women by the Lord alone. Join me as we walk the ancient paths of our Christian heritage seeking to understand the roots of our Christian faith. Discover the places of influence where God placed people of the Bible like Abraham, Samson, Hezekiah, and David. Traverse the hills of Galilee and connect with the life and ministry of Jesus and his disciples. Travel the streets of Jerusalem and contemplate the legacy of faith beginning with Abraham and fulfilled in the resurrection of Christ extending into your life. Understand the grander purposes of God as they are revealed in the history, archaeology, geography, and culture of the Scriptures. As we experience Israel with the Biblical text as our guide, open your eyes to understand the Scriptures through its eastern context maybe for the first time. All along the way consider your own faith as you are challenged to understand the paths of God in your own life and to leave a lasting legacy.

The Tour

The Psalmist proclaims: “I will utter the hidden things, things of old… the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord” (Psalm 78). Come with us and explore where so many of these “praiseworthy deeds” were accomplished.  Cruise the lush Nile River, from ancient Luxor to breathtaking Aswan.  Marvel at the Great Pyramids of Giza, The Valley of the Kings, and the splendor of Abu Simbel. Fly to Aqaba, Jordan, and embark on a motor coach tour of beautiful Wadi Rum, the tombs at Petra, Mount Nebo, and many more sites.  

At Under the Fig Tree Ministries, we always strive to bring you new and exciting experiences. We think we’ve outdone ourselves here! On this tour, we invite you to spend an evening under the stars at Wadi Rum, in an unparalleled "glamping" adventure. What an incredible way to bask in the glory of God’s good creation!

The Under the Fig Tree Difference

Tour companies bring groups to these lands by the busload year-round. So what makes Under the Fig Tree different from all the rest? Fundamentally, it’s this: in all things, we approach the land from a distinctive Biblical perspective. Our leader, pastor and historian George DeJong, has led tours to the Middle East for almost 20 years, and he is highly regarded as a guide and teacher.

George’s study trips provide participants with both wonderful experiences and deep insights into the culture, geography and history of the lands of the Bible. In fact, on his trips, participants are not so much tourists as they are investments. Why? Because what you learn and experience on an Under the Fig Tree trip will make an invaluable impact on your life! As George is fond of saying:

“Come, let’s go!”

* A 3 day in-depth Israel extension is available for this tour

** The Nile Cruise tour is designed as a bus/walking tour, but optional more-aggressive hikes may be available.
