"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)

  • "Traveling in the "Footsteps of Paul" in Turkey made this tour feel like a fresh Christian blood transfusion. I realize how important it is to take time to explore Old World roots; to visit places were Jesus (in Israel) or the Apostles shared the Good News. The Paul Turkey trip was a natural follow-up to my visit to Israel. The success of this tour for me came from the mix of people who bonded well, and the curiosity and questions shared. Matching this was the superb biblical scholarship of three PHD leaders who seemed to enjoy exploring our questions."
