This presentation will explore the roles geography plays in shaping the story told in Acts 8:1-25 and in reshaping our expectations about a place that seemed too sin-ruined to save.
Dr. John A. Beck (Ph.D. Hebrew and Old Testament from Trinity International University) has taught courses in Hebrew and Old Testament at various colleges and universities for nearly 30 years. For more than 25 of those years, he has been teaching field studies in Israel, Jordan, and Egypt which explore the relationship between geography, culture, and Bible communication. Dr. Beck is a permanent adjunct faculty member at Jerusalem University College in Israel. He spends most of his year writing books and hosting documentaries which, like his classes, are designed to make the Bible’s geography meaningful.
His books include Zondervan Dictionary of Biblical Imagery, The Baker Illustrated Guide to Everyday Life in Bible Times, Discovery House Bible Atlas, The Holy Land for Christian Travelers, Basic Bible Atlas, and The Holy Land Devotional. His latest film series with Our Daily Bread Films is “The Holy Land—Connecting the Land with Its Stories.” Dr. Beck lives in Wisconsin.
