Egypt is mentioned throughout the Bible with tales of the Great Exodus and the flight of the Jesus’s Family into the land of the Pharaohs. Christianity in the country has a long history, and this tour aims to visit many important ancient Christian sites and locations mentioned in the Bible including some said to have been visited by the Holy Family during their journey through the country. We also visit some of Egypt’s most famous Pharaonic sites and learn about the context of how ancient Christians lived in Egypt over the centuries.

Cairo

Journey begins in the Egyptian Capital, Cairo, home of course to the Pyramids and Sphinx, but also to some important ancient Christian sites, particularly some of the ancient churches in what is now called ‘Coptic Cairo’.

Egypts' Ancient Places

Tanis

Tanis gained prominence recently when it was featured in the movie ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ as the hiding place for the Ark of the Covenant, though there is no historical basis for this theory.

Mt Sinai

Mount Sinai is believed to have been the location where Moses received the 10 commandments from God, though others believe this happened at the nearby mount Serbal. You should reach the summit in plenty of time to watch a beautiful sunrise over the Sinai mountains.

Minya

Minya province is to the south of Cairo. Whilst you are here you will visit the Monastery of the Holy Virgin which is said to have been founded around a cave where the Holy Family sought refuge for 3 days. The cave now houses an icon of the Virgin Mary which is said to have special properties.

Assyut

We continue south to the city of Assyut where we visit the Monastery of the Holy Virgin. The holy family spent over 6 months here and Jesus is said to have returned following his resurrection to consecrate the altar.

Discover Egypt

For years, the popular media has mocked the biblical accounts of Joseph, Moses, the Passover, and the Exodus as being completely incompatible with standard Egyptian chronology. Year after year, we have been told by numerous scholars that events recorded in the books of Genesis and Exodus are nice legends devoid of any historical or archaeological merit. However, a new wind is blowing. An emerging pool of scholars, representing diverse backgrounds, has been openly calling for a drastic reduction in Egyptian chronology. Such a reduction would serve to line up the historical and archaeological records of Egypt and the Old Testament. Surprisingly, there is a substantial amount of evidence to warrant a significant reduction of Egyptian history. And by doing so, the reliability of Genesis, Exodus, and the entire Old Testament will have to be reconsidered as a viable source of historical truth.
