 What is the difference between Session 1 and Session 2 

Both sessions are virtually the same. The lecture topics and some of the field trip sites differ so as not to be too repetitive for those attending both excavation sessions.

Testimonials

  • "I enjoyed the program tremendously!!! I cannot think of any ways to improve it at this point. I think Steve did an outstanding job in many respects. He was extremely knowledgeable, but what I enjoyed even more than that was the faith that shown through in all his presentations. Dr. Notley was very hospitable in seeking to satisfy all, and adaptable to the varying needs of our group. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone having a bit of curiosity. I'm sure I will be reaping benefits from this indefinitely as I now have a much greater background for my daily walk. I'm sure each time I read the Bible my ability to place myself in the setting to understand will be much improved. I wish the two of you extreme success with your programs...and I hope to be venturing with you again in a couple of years!"
