| General Information

Our short-term programs of study are quite different from typical "Holy Land" Tours. We are an academic institution not a tourist agency. These programs have been developed over five decades of experience in the land.  Our programs visit sites not normally viewed by typical holy land tours.  Daily hiking can be rigorous and sustained in rugged terrain. Participants must be in excellent physical condition.

Our instructors are far more than just "licensed tour guides". They are academically qualified faculty members of the university college and are specially trained in the archaeology and historical geography of the land as it relates to the interpretation of biblical and other historical events. 

| Pastor and Parishioner Study Tour: non-credit

The rebuilt Rabbinical city in northern Israel gives numerous insights into the time of Jesus. The scale model of the Temple Mount at the time of Herod is a greta visual aid. Cooling some tired feet at a popular spot.
This two week introduction to the biblical setting of the Scriptures will enrich your knowledge and appreciation of Scripture through exposure to the land and people of Israel and the work of the university college. Your faith is strengthened as you become more alive to the reality of biblical events by experiencing their actual locations.

Skilled instructors will challenge your thinking and make Bible reading and teaching come alive as never before.  This non-credit program benefits from having the same experienced and academically qualified faculty used in the academic short-term programs.

The program is offered twice each academic year usually in late October and again in April.  Check Related Information below for more information.
