Bible Lands

The Bible Lands program is an educational travel experience that is open to learners of all ages. Our goal is to offer a rich learning experience that will fill your imagination with visions of the past by providing a geographical and historical context for the Hebrew and Christian scriptures. This can be a complicated affair, since the Bible spans several thousand years and just as many miles - from Italy to Iran, Turkey to Ethiopia, and everywhere in between.

While participants will not visit all of the lands mentioned in the Bible during one trip - just imagine how long that would take! - the program offers travel opportunities to many biblically-significant sites and historical locations in the Eastern Mediterranean region. Past programs have included visits to Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Greece, and Italy. Participants who join one of our programs will visit some of the most significant sites recorded in the Bible.

The Bible Lands program is currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we intend to resume operations when it is safe and feasible to do so. Below are examples of itineraries and informational brochures for Bible Lands trips that were planned for 2020.
