Students Prepare to Depart on Bible Lands Study Tour
Forty-two students are departing on a nearly one-month long Bible Lands Tour on Sunday, May 13, led by Department of Religion & Biblical Languages faculty Ante Jeroncic and Ruben Munoz-Larrondo. Each of the participating students are enrolled in two of three courses: Jesus in His Time & Ours; Personal Spirituality & Faith; or In the Footsteps of Moses. Their travels will take them to Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Turkey, and Greece. “Apart from it being an educational tour with the aim of helping students understand the world of the Bible and thus enrich their understanding of Scripture, we are approaching this as a "spiritual pilgrimage" of sorts,” says Jernoncic. During the tour, students participate in regular worship services and spiritual activities appropriate to the different places they are visiting.
