Journey to Judea is an interactive Christmas experience that allows you to walk through the narrative of the Bible, learning the twists and turns that lead us to the birth of Christ and reveal the true significance of His coming. The birth of Christ is more than a historical event: it has crucial relevance for every man, woman and child.
This event includes a cast of nearly 100 people, live animals, narration, live action, and music. Groups of 40-50 people will be guided through an hour-long outdoor tour of different scenes spread across twenty acres of land, literally walking through the story of the Bible. Our goal is to make this a yearly event that families can enjoy together as a part of their Christmas celebration.
We will have five separate nights of outdoor tours this year. New tours will begin every ten minutes and will take about one hour to complete. You can pick your departure date and time as well as print your ticket when you register for the event. Tickets are free, we just ask that you register so we can plan accordingly!
One night is set aside to share Journey to Judea through ASL performed tours. You can pick your departure time and request Motorized Assistance for the 90 minute tours when you register for the event. You’ll receive your free ticket by email, we just ask that you register so we can plan accurately. Please note that, on this "silent" deaf tour, there will be no voice interpreters for your hearing family or friends. To experience this wonderful journey, they may sign up for one of the many hearing tours we offer on the following nights. For questions, call (913) 937-9546 VP.
Every year Christmas comes and goes, but many people do not know the whole story behind the story. Some have heard that Christmas is about Jesus' birth in a town called Bethlehem in Judea, but few understand that this was a major climax in human history. Jesus' coming is significant; the storyline of the entire Bible revolves around it. Come listen to Moses, David, Isaiah and others foretell the coming of the King. Come see the busy innkeeper and the young pregnant couple who were denied residence by him. Watch the angels tell good news to shepherds. Come witness the empty cross and the open tomb and hear the next chapter of the story.
Journey to Judea is held on the property of Countryside Baptist Church in Overland Park, KS.
