A GTI Signature Tour

What to Expect

A Nile River cruise, dozens of ancient sites, and the brand-new Egyptian Museum (Inshallah)!

From the bulrushes on the banks of the Nile to panoramic view on Mount Nebo, this study tour will follow the life and footsteps of Moses - Shepherd, Leader, Prophet and Friend of God, the man with whom the Lord spoke face to face (Exodus 33:11). Richard Liverance and Jerrell Jobe will teach us each day and connect what we see to the biblical narrative, all from the comforts and convenience of a cruise ship.

It took one day to get the Israelites out of Egypt; it took years to get Egypt out of the Israelites. So to understand these spiritual ancestors of ours, we need to experience where they came from - Egypt, the pagan land where they were delivered out of slavery to become God's Chosen People, and Jordan, where God led them through the wilderness and taught them to depend on Him as they awaited the Promised Land.

On this tour, we will learn about Egyptian deities and visit temples where they and the pharaohs were worshiped. Beginning with the pyramids of Giza, our itinerary will guide us south along the Nile River to Luxor and Aswan, visiting sites such as Karnak, the Valley of the Kings, and Elephantine Island.

We then transition into the second part of our journey and notice the contrast between the green lushness of the Nile River and the red, barren terrain of Jordan. As we discuss the wanderings of the Israelites, we will see stunning places like Wadi Rum, Petra, and Mt. Nebo. These two lands are a significant part of biblical history – where God prepared his people for the Promised Land! Join us for this spectacular trip!
