A visit to the Bible Lands is invaluable for any Christian. Bible events come to life when you stand in the very places where Jesus performed miracles, Apostles preached the Gospel, and heroes acted on their faith. This immersive tour deepens the way you read, understand, and share God's Word.
I invite you to join me on a 13-day comprehensive study tour in Israel from May 11 to 23, 2020. Stroll through Capernaum and see where Jesus spoke of His kingdom and performed miracles. Sail on the Sea of Galilee, wade in the Jordan River, and float in the Dead Sea. Walk in the very steps of Abraham, David, Jesus, and other biblical people. Stories in the Bible come to life in vivid, lasting ways. This immersive tour will forever change the way you read the Scriptures.

"My wife Linda and I wanted to tour Israel. We let life crowd it out of the picture. Then my wife took an archeological class that Luke Chandler taught at Florida College. That was it. We packed our bags and were ready to go.
"What impressed me? Luke took care of every detail before and during our trip. He tended to our needs throughout Israel. Luke’s knowledge of the Bible and the land of Israel, wrapped in his passion, made each day an adventure. He brought the prophets of old to life, and he brought visual clarity to the New Testament.
"There are defining moments in everyone’s life. When you take the trip to Israel with Luke, you will experience defining moments that you could not have experienced in any other way. There are a few things in life I would recommend to everyone. Taking the trip to Israel with Luke Chandler as your guide is one of them."

"Traveling and touring Israel with Luke Chandler was notable for both ease of arrangements and complete enjoyment of the many cities and sites on our Itinerary, more than 25 in 10 days! At each ancient site, we were blessed to have Luke tell us the dramatic stories there, from the Bible as well as archaeology and history.
