"The Land of the Bible"
A Study in Old and New Testament Backgrounds
November 3-14, 2021


Mike and Rebecca Bellanti invite you to join a unique journey to the Holy Land. This journey to Israel with Dr. Steven Notley 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 is of special interest. Our aim is 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)

  • "Just to let you know that I was very pleased with the trip to Turkey . I hope to be able to take another trip with Emmaus in the future! I'm sending a picture of Steve Notley talking to the group about Acts 19 while in the theatre in Ephesus . The trip was well organized on both sides of the Atlantic. Dr. Notley was great, our guide and driver were very friendly. I was pleased with the schedule, even though I normally like more time to explore on my own time, I thought this was a good mix and did provide me with some flexibility. Based on my experience, I would definitely like to return to Turkey, and would definitely be interested in another Emmaus trip."
