Israel Study Tour: Historical Geography of the Bible
Israel Study Tour: Historical Geography of the Bible [BIBL 0603 / RLGS 3073]
A study tour which combines travel with lectures and readings to provide students with a rich, on-site learning experience. Students will spend three full weeks in Israel visiting sites throughout the country that formed the stage on which so many Biblical events were played out. The tour will move region-by region, spending time in Jerusalem and Judea, Benjamin, the Coastal Plain, the Negeb, the Dead Sea area, the Jordan Valley, the Galillee and the Golan Heights. In each area students will learn about its geography and archaeology, exploring how the features of each area shaped the history of its people. Attention will also be given to the imagery and symbolism connected with each region in both Old and New Testaments.
