Christian interest in Israel the Holy Land is associated with the birth, demise, followed by demise and subsequent resurgence of the pilgrimage movement. In both Islamic and Hebrew tradition, pilgrimage is regarded as a religious obligation of the entire faiths, taught in its sacred scriptures, hence the importance of the Land of Israel. Despite costs, hazards associated with pilgrimages, it has increased year by year since the ninth century. Believers feel an obligation to visit the land of Jesus. Many South African Christians feel and obligation to go on tours to Israel and the numbers grow every year. Pilgrimage tours include all the places where Jesus was present: Nazareth, Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Mount of Beatitude, Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
Together we fulfill the mission of Pilgrimage and follow the scriptures. For more information about our Pilgrimage tours to Israel from South Africa, please click on this link https://www.heavenlytours.co.za/
