Discover the Land of the Bible (and a new perspective on the Scriptures)
The Land of the Bible provides an important tool for a more comprehensive understanding of the Bible. This study provides clarity to many biblical accounts and to lessons and events which they narrate. Knowing the setting of the Bible increases our ability to identify with the challenges that the characters of the Bible faced and to recognize temptations that drove kings and people to make wrong decisions despite the repeated warnings of the prophets.
Join Pastor Steven Lancaster as he provides this orientation to the Land. The primary purpose of this course is to place travelers to Israel on solid footing for making the most of their time in the Land, but it is also extremely useful for those who desire to become more familiar with their Bibles through the history and geography that lies behind it. The course gives participants a hands-on experience with interactive map marking. The mapping materials are essential to keep pace with the lessons and are available for purchase from Biblical Backgrounds, Inc. The necessary materials are these:
1. Introductory Study Package ($30) from Biblical Backgrounds.
2. The Regional Study Guide, free when downloaded from the Biblical Backgrounds website.
3. Black pen and a set of yellow, green, blue, red, and orange colored highlighters.
4. A Bible (New American Standard, English Standard Version, or New International Version preferred)
