Christian subscription boxes from Israel are fun to receive, and the unboxing of the content is even more fun. They promise that you will receive something to enrich your soul and inspire you to learn more about Israel. The boxes are loaded with goodies to savor and share with your family and friends.

These boxes are great to give with or without reason, although they fit perfectly with special Christian occasions like baptism, Christmas, Easter, weddings, and Pentecost.

The Artza Christian Subscription Boxes support 9 different small local Israeli businesses and charities, and each box contains cards with information about each of the artisans that contributed to the box.

Let's visit Israel through these boxes.



Bethlehem is a town that has an important role in Christianity. It is the birthplace of Jesus Christ, the Messiah that came to save the world. What can you expect to get inside a box that represents Bethlehem?

Nazareth is important in the Bible as it was said to be the town where the angel Gabriel told Mary that she would conceive a child. This child was Jesus Christ. This also became the hometown of Jesus after returning from Egypt. It is believed that He lived and worked here until he was about 30 years of age.

According to the Bible, Jesus was born as the Messiah. It is said that He came to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament and to die on the cross to save all people. Thus, it makes Nazareth important in Christianity as it is believed to be the hometown of Jesus.

Judaean Desert – Land of the Bible

Judaean Desert – Land of the Bible

The Judaean Desert is a small desert bordered by the Mountains of Judea on the west side and the Dead Sea on the east. This is said to be the desert where Jesus went into exile and where He was tempted by Satan for 40 days and nights.

The first time we read about Jesus being in Jerusalem, he was a baby taken to the temple after he was circumcised, according to Jewish traditions. We also read that he returned annually to Jerusalem with family and friends to celebrate the Passover feast. He later cleaned the temple when it was used as a market.

Jesus was said to have preached to the people living in Jerusalem, as well as healing its people. It was apparently also the place where he was arrested, trailed, crucified, buried, and where He later rose from the dead.

The Sea of Galilee

The Sea of Galilee

The Sea of Galilee is not a sea but rather a big lake. The location and the excellent fishing drew many people to settle there. In Matthew 4:23, we read that Jesus went through Galilee teaching, preaching, performing miracles, and healing the people.

What Jesus Did at the Sea of Galilee

Five loaves of Bread and Two Fish

It is said that Jesus lived in the ancient village of Capernaum on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is also widely accepted that Tabgha, on the northern coast of the Sea of Galilee, is the site where Jesus fed 5000 people with five loaves of bread and two fish (Matthew 14:13-21).

Sermon on the Mount and the Site of Transfiguration

At the Mount of Beatitudes, it is believed that Jesus had given the Sermon on the Mount, while Mount Tabor has been identified as the site of the transfiguration. According to Gospels Matthew, Mark, and Luke (Matthew 17:1-3; Mark 9:2-13; Luke 9:28-36), Jesus took the disciples Peter, James, and John to see an apparition of Moses and Elijah.

The Exorcism of Two

Kursi, located east of the Sea of Galilee, at the mount of a riverbed, is traditionally the place where it is believed Jesus exorcised demons from two possessed men (Matthew 8:28-33).

Baptism of John the Baptist

Yardenit, where the Jordan River flows from the Sea of Galilee southwards to the Dead Sea, is believed to be the site where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.

Water into Wine

In Cana, artifacts were found that make scholars believe that this is where Jesus changed the water to wine.

Bethsaida is known for being the place where Jesus performed a few miracles:

  • Jesus feeds the five thousand people with five bread and two fish (Matthew 14:13-21; Mark 6:30-44; Luke 9:12-17).
  • Jesus walks on water (Matthew 14:22-36; Mark 6:45-51).
  • Jesus heals a man from blindness (Mark 8:22-26).
