Embrace the Biblical Narrative On Site
This experience brings the Bible alive in a new way, giving its stories new dimensions and deeper meaning as you see the places where biblical events took place—from the archaeological remains of Old Testament kingdoms to the locations of Jesus’ ministry. This trip will introduce you to sites in Jerusalem, Galilee, the Dead Sea area, and Bethlehem. It will also include some introduction to the modern state of Israel and the Middle Eastern political situation.
Prior to the two weeks in Israel, online course meetings will present introductory and overview information for those registered for credit. Not only will the course increase your knowledge of biblical history, geography, and archaeology, you will see the sites’ significance for understanding the Bible. It’s one thing to teach or preach the Bible through study of the text, and quite another to be able to describe the land where it was written from firsthand experience.
