A Contemporary Studies pilgrimage in Jordan, Israel and Palestine
The Rev. James Stanfield-Myers
Mr. Steve McMurdo
This pilgrimage will acquaint participants with the geographical and cultural settings of the New Testament and relate historical studies to contemporary dynamics in Israel, Palestine and Jordan. The pilgrimage will include morning and evening fora on historical and contemporary themes and visits with indigenous people. This pilgrimage is designed to introduce particpants to the state of the art of biblical studies in the Holy Land. The learning process will be contextual and experiential. We will endeavor especially to examine the moral dimensions of biblical learning and teaching. We are particularly interested in understanding how biblical studies and the biblical faith relates to the context of the Holy Land.
Please see the attached syllabus for more details.
