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 College students can earn BIB, HIS or ANT credit with Dr. Garcia.
NYCATS students can earn NT504 credit with Dr. Notley or TH605 credit with Dr. DeCaro.

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!"
