WALKING WHERE JESUS WALKED
For those who love the Scriptures, the Biblical Study Tour opens a panorama of both history and imagination. The BST takes us to places of biblical significance (for both testaments) and can literally change the way we read God’s Word. Tour leaders: Drs. Douglas Jacoby (Atlanta) & Steve Kinnard (New York).
There’s a lot of talk about doing what Jesus would do (WWJD?), but how about walking where Jesus walked? Vicki and I would like to invite you to join our 2016 annual tour — as we return to Israel.
Benefits of joining the tour

You’ve thought about these locations for years; now’s your chance to experience them — or to experience them anew, if this will be a return visit.

Who may come?
The tour is open to everybody, believers and seekers alike. Children age 12 and above are also welcome, provided they are mature enough to appreciate the sights. College students, check with your university to see if this trip can count for course credit. There is a fair amount of walking around the various sites, including hilly terrain, so average fitness is desirable, and and good walking shoes are a must. As of 11 Dec, the 2016 BST group already represents 11 nations and ranges in age from 14 to 70.
