This pilgrimage will acquaint participants with the geographical and cultural settings of the Bible and relate historical studies to contemporary dynamics in Israel and Palestine. The pilgrimage will include morning and evening fora on historical and contemporary themes. You will visit church supported mission sites. This pilgrimage is designed to introduce participants to the state of the art of biblical studies in the Holy Land. The learning process will be contextual and experiential. We will endeavor especially to examine the moral dimensions of biblical learning and teaching. We are particularly interested in understanding how biblical studies and the biblical faith relates to the context of the Holy Land.
