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 was a wonderful pilgrimage. You were so right in saying "you have read the Bible in black and white. Now you will have it in technicolor". That is exactly what has happened. It is a gift that will be with me forever for my personal spiritual growth as well as my intellectual (and emotional) growth. Thank you for all your time and effort."
