israel 2023

Pastor David will be leading a trip through Jerusalem University College (JUC) from Feb. 12-26, 2023. This two-week introduction to the historical and geographical settings of the Bible will enrich your knowledge and appreciation of the reality of Scripture. Your understanding of the Bible will be strengthened as you recount biblical events in their actual locations. Your experiences will give substance to images that the biblical writers used to communicate the realities of God and His work in the world. This non-credit program is taught by the same academically-qualified faculty members who teach JUC's other short-term programs. 


This short-term program of study is quite different from typical Holy Land tours. The instructors are academically-qualified faculty members who will lead in your discovery of the land of the Bible. You will visit nearly the entire country of Israel, including sites not normally viewed by participants of typical tours. While daily hiking can be rigorous and sustained in rugged terrain, it will allow you to read the Bible on site and enhance your spiritual life and ministry like never before. Participants in this program will primarily use the maps and resources created by Biblical Backgrounds.
