These are the ancient stories of women that tell of struggle, joy, and tragedy; but at the same time convey the compassion and love for God that women today experience in life.

Women of the Bible is a tour dedicated to the stories of women in the Bible. These are the ancient stories of women that tell of struggle, joy, and tragedy; but at the same time convey the compassion and love for God that women today experience in life.

We will explore the sacred spaces where the women of Bible, all encountered challenges but found sacred wisdom to foster grace in their unfolding encounter with God.

A very special part of the program is the integration of local women whose voices will inspire us and enrich a vision of life in Israel and Palestine today. Their laughter and their tears will deepen our learning and devotion to embracing the women’s stories in Holy Scripture.

Travelling with like-minded women, we expect this tour to be full of lots of conversation and laughter, where friendships will be made and life-long memories will be created.

Here is what some of our 2019 tour participants had to say:

“I fully recommended the Women of the Bible tour. I found our Jewish tour guide and Jewish bus driver excellent. To be in only 3 hotels for 10 nights was appreciated greatly.”

”Having just returned from the most amazing experience of touring Israel with Selah!! I highly recommend travelling with the wonderful Selah team.”

”I just had a wonderful time of learning and sharing with really lovely people. Thank you for everything.”

“The combination of the other ladies on our tour, Gabriela our guide and Kobi our driver, was an amazing blend of people and would be very hard to have again. I think we were truly blessed.”

“Gabriela – what a godsend of a guide! Passionate, caring, knowledgeable, strong, wise – a real leader. I loved how she was honest and transparent! She bought something to the tour that blessed us all! Having her sing a Jewish blessing over us was such a moving moment and not a dry eye on the bus! The way she looked after us, changed things to ensure we had the best experience possible! I loved how passionate she was about her country, politics and life! She was exactly the right guide for this tour!!! I know we all miss her!!!!”

The Camino Walk in Northern Spain has been a spiritual journey since the Middle Ages. Today the walk attracts people from all over the world, searching for purpose and meaning. As a group of Christians, this is an intentional walk wanting to engage with others along The Way. Invite others for chats at night or as you walk, share your story of faith.

The Camino Walk in Northern Spain has been a spiritual journey since the Middle Ages. Back then it was believed that if a pilgrim took the journey their sins would be forgiven!

Today the walk attracts people from all over the world, searching for purpose and meaning. As a group of Christians, this is an intentional walk wanting to engage with others along The Way. Invite others for chats at night or as you walk, share your story of faith.

The walk ends in the town of Santiago de Compostela, where it is believed the remains of the apostle James are held in the crypt under the Cathedral. For this reason, the walk is known as the Way of Saint James (even though his remains came by boat!).

The scallop shell, found on the shores in Galicia, has long been the symbol of the Camino de Santiago, and is a common signpost along the path to guide pilgrims in the direction of Santiago.
Whatever your reason for walking you will be inspired by the beauty of God’s creation as you walk, you will encounter different people along the way and you will have Selah moments with God as you connect with Him on your walk.

Every Monday

Selah has a range of customised fully escorted tours for Australian Christians to travel on. However the time of year and dates don’t always work so we are pleased to offer you the opportunity to travel on tour through the Holy Land with guaranteed departures every Monday.

These tours offer individuals the opportunity to join a tour with travellers from all over the world.

Some of the renowned destinations of Holy Land tours include places such as the Old City, Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Western Wall, Temple Mount and Mount Zion and Shepherd’s field.

The eventful cities recorded in the Bible form an important part of a Holy Land tour. These include Bethlehem, where Jesus was born, Nazareth, Jerusalem and Jericho. The eventful sites, such as the Mount of transfiguration, the wilderness where Jesus was tempted, the tomb from which Lazarus was raised, the tomb where Jesus was laid and rose again, the river where He was baptized and the Way of grief (Via Dolorosa) where He carried the cross are imprinted in the pilgrim’s mind and help perceive the Bible from a deeper view.

“The time in Israel was very beneficial to my ministry. I know that my understanding of the scriptures has been significantly improved through this experience. I would highly recommend that every Christian puts the tour of Israel on their bucket list.”

Mark McDonald, St Hilary’s Kew

Selah offers a variety of tours to the Holy Land and we believe it is important for you to be aware that this tour is different to our fully escorted tours where we have a spiritual leader accompany the group from Australia.  This particular tour is with local guides who are not trained in the Christian faith and whilst respectful of all faiths, their focus will be on the historical, cultural and faith based aspects of the sights visited without a particularly spiritual aspect.

Other passengers will be from different countries and may also have different faiths and beliefs.

We want to alert you to these differences in order to manage your expectations and ensure that you enjoy the tour fully.  If  you would like  to find out more about escorted trips managed by Selah with a Christian tour leader, see our range of tours.
