B12 – The Bible and its Setting
31 January – 13 February, 2012
This course takes you from “Dan to Beersheva” – the ancient description of the extent of the Holy Land from north to south (2 Samuel 3:10). It is designed to give participants an experience of the sacred geography and topography of the Holy Land, and the physical background to both Testaments. Old Testament sites that may be visited include the archeological discoveries at the City of David and Hezekiah’s Tunnel, Hebron, Mamre, Beersheva, Megiddo, Jericho, the Jordan Valley and Elijah’s Mount Carmel. New Testament sites include important locations in Jerusalem and the Galilee; in addition we will examine recent archeological excavations at Sefaris and Bethsaida. (All itineraries are subject to local conditions). The study-pilgrimage includes 2 nights in Galilee and one night in the Negrev desert. It combines study and prayer, pilgrimage and spirituality, so the course not only deepens one’s understanding of the Biblical settings but also deepens one’s faith in the God who reveals himself in this land.
