The Holy Land Experience brings together the sights and sounds of the world of the Bible in a unique and interactive way unlike anywhere else.
It is a living, biblical museum that takes you 7000 miles away and 2000 years back in time to the land of the Bible. Its combination of sights, sounds, and tastes will stimulate your senses and blend together to create a spectacular new experience.
But above all, beyond the fun and excitement, we hope that you will see God and His Word exalted and that you will be encouraged in your search for enduring truth and the ultimate meaning of life.
There are many wonderful things to learn at The Holy Land Experience. From the moment you pass through the gates of our walled city, you will be immersed in ancient Jerusalem. The structures and exhibits characterize the style, architecture, and settings that existed in the Holy Land 2000 years ago. The Garden Tomb, Qumran Dead Sea Caves, Great Temple and Plaza, Jerusalem Model, and Wilderness Tabernacle are all intricately detailed, both inside and out, to provide you with a clearer understanding of their biblical significance.
Imagine entering an exact replica of the Garden Tomb where the body of the Lord Jesus Christ was buried. In reverence, you approach the tomb where He emerged victorious over death. Then at the grand entrance to the Temple Plaza, walk under a massive archway and behold the gleaming white stone plaza surrounding you with its thirty Roman columns crowned with gold capitals. All this grandeur majestically frames the imposing Great Temple, the place held in highest reverence among the Jewish people. It is a truly breathtaking representation of the Temple that once stood on hallowed Mount Moriah in 1st century Jerusalem.
Our musical team "Century" will recount many of the events that transpired during this pivotal period of human history. Recreations of the ministry of Jesus, stories from the Old Testament, miracles and triumphs, and the story of musical praise through the ages will all move your spirit and emotions in praise to our Lord God.
The history of the Bible comes alive through presentations by our Biblical Archaeologists as they describe the significance of the Garden Tomb, the Qumran Caves, the Great Temple, the layout of the city of Jerusalem, and much more! And The Scriptorium: Center for Biblical Antiquities will take you on an incredible journey through the pages of history to learn how we can have the Bible today in our own language.
