Megiddo - Israel Tours

Stands above the remains of 25 civilizations and a multitude of hills and valleys with biblical meaning

If you would like to travel to a place where you can experience a unique vantage point on your Christian tours to Israel, Megiddo is the perfect site to begin! Megiddo stands above the remains of 25 civilizations and a multitude of hills and valleys with biblical meaning. Megiddo is also the location where it is said the great battle during Armageddon will happen. Megiddo was the most popular stop on the biggest trading route of the ancient world, crossing the land bridge of Canaan to connect distant places in the Fertile Crescent-Egypt and Mesopotamia. King Solomon (1 Kings 9:15), Joshua (Joshua 12:21) and King Josiah (2 Kings 23:30) all visited Megiddo’s walls. Megiddo is now Megiddo National Park, a World Heritage Site that gives you a special view back in time. There is a round altar where sacrifices were made by Canaanites as talked about in 2 Kings 23:19 when the bible spoke of Canaanites and Israelites making sacrifices to idols in “high places”. Although there were no towns here in Jesus’ day, it is often noted when visitors come on Israel escorted tours that the stone feeding troughs in the stables are similar to those in which it is said baby Jesus was laid down (Luke 2:7).

In November of 2005, an incredible discovery was made during the excavations prior to a prison’s expansion. A mosaic was found with 3 inscriptions written in Green, one of which celebrated a woman called Akeptos saying, “lover of God, who contributed the table to God, Jesus Christ as a memorial.” A table is mentioned in another inscription, which leads archaeologists to believe that it was created during a time when tables not altars were used during communion. This fact could make it the oldest church in existence, which is why such care has gone into renovating it so that Christians can visit on Holy Land Christian tours and worship here again. Whether you visit Megiddo for its amazing views or its historical value, you won’t be disappointed on your Israel trip.
