Israel – January 2023 – Geographic and Historic Settings of the Bible
Dr. Steven Notley
Trip Cost: $3,350 plus airfare – Graduate and Undergraduate Credit
Nyack College and ATS invite you to join the 2022 spring break 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 the 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.
