“The Life and Land of Jesus”
A Study in Old Testament and New Testament Backgrounds
February 11– 23, 2015
Dr. Marion Taylor of Wycliffe College invites you to join her on a unique study program to the Holy Land. In association with Dr. Steven Notley of Emmaus Educational Services, this program centers upon the lives and ministries of familiar Old Testament and New Testament personalities. With the land as our classroom, with archaeology, history, geography, language and culture as our resources, we will journey back into the religious, political, cultural and geographical environment of prophets, priests and kings. Jesus’ ministry within a complex religious environment is of special interest. Our aim is to better understand the influences and the impact of the biblical record within its various contexts. We anticipate a rich and rewarding program. Our goal is to search the Scriptures, break bread together and fellowship in travel, that we also might proclaim, “Did not our hearts burn within us as He spoke to us on the way?” (Luke 24:32)
