In the Master's Steps through Judea, Samaria and Galilee
A Study in New Testament Backgrounds
January 5-18, 2019

 
     
 

Nyack College and ATS invite you to join the 2019 Winterim study course to the Holy Land. Our journey is a study of the physical, historical and cultural setting of the land of the Bible in days of the New Testament. We will give particular attention to how these elements influenced and affected the world in which Jesus lived. The study trip is a focus on historical geography, which is an integration of geography, history, archaeology and ancient literature. Preparatory assigned readings and map studies will maximize the student's learning experience during their travel from Dan to Beersheba and beyond. Relevant archaeological, historical, and biblical information will be presented in our field study to integrate the student's learning experience.

Nyack credits available: BIB/HIS/ANT 384, OT 504, NT 504, ARC 501.

Testimonials

  • "This program will have a long lasting effect in the years to come. It is impossible to gain the full impact of what you are learning on the trip. It takes some time and consideration when you return to realize and unpack the wealth of knowledge that you have received from both Dr. Notley and Dr. Thompson. The program also allows you to see the Scriptures in a new light. Having the understanding and grasp that both of our professors have for the land is truly a rare quality. Their combined passion for the land and for the Lord is unequaled in my experiences in North America. Not only are they gifted, but their pursuit and goal is to pass this passion on to their students. Dr. Thompson provided OT insights that can only be experienced by being in the land. Dr. Notley gave insights to Scripture that can only be seen if we view Jesus in His 1st century setting and have a grasp of the land. I am truly grateful that they combined their talents to provide this program. It is by their effort and others that the Holy Land is made accessible to the heart and mind of each group. The land and the trip were life changing."
