Dr. Judy Paulsen of Wycliffe College invites you to join her and Dr. Steven Notley on a unique study program to Israel. This program centers upon the lives and ministries of familiar Old Testament and New Testament personalities. With the land as our classroom, with archaeology, history, geography, language and culture as our resources, we will journey back into the religious, political, cultural and geographical environment of prophets, priests and kings. Jesus’ ministry within a complex religious environment will be of special interest. We seek to better understand the influences and the impact of the biblical record within its various contexts. We anticipate a rich and rewarding program. Our goal is to search the Scriptures, break bread together and fellowship in travel, that we also might proclaim, “Did not our hearts burn within us as He spoke to us on the way?” (Luke 24:32)

Testimonials

  • "What a wonderful time we all had in Israel. Steve cannot be beat, as you well know. Seeing unplanned sites and doing impromptu excursions was icing on the cake; this can only happen with people like Steve and Slava who know the areas and care about the interests of the group. Both are people with servant-hearts. I learned a great deal more than I had expected, and have a much better understanding of the setting for Christ's birth and the circumstances/environment of his death. I enjoyed the hikes and we were blessed with perfect weather. Size of the group was a bonus; enjoyed lasting fellowship; never felt like I couldn't get close enough to hear what Steve was saying. Steve deserves many kudos for his spiritual insights, his kindness, knowledge, flexibility, sense of humor, and all-round positive attitude. Thank You!"
