Jordan Field Study Extension (Optional)
The 3-day Jordan Field Study Extension offers opportunity for continued exploration of the Land of the Bible. This is accomplished as you assess the historical and geographical contexts of Transjordan to better understand its role in the biblical narrative. While in Jordan, you will evaluate the regions of Lower Gilead, Upper Gilead, Ammon, the Medeba Plateau, Moab, and Edom. Together with your program instructor, you will compare and contrast Cisjordan and Transjordan, contemplating the connectedness of the Land as a whole and considering the geopolitical opportunity it afforded.
The Jordan Field Study extends the Historical and Geographical Settings of the Bible and Pastor and Parishioner programs by two additional days at the end of the program. The Jesus and His Times program is extended by three additional days at the beginning of the program. View pricing in the Tuition and Aid Fee Schedules.
