We offer high-quality study tours that integrate the study of the physical, historical, cultural, and spiritual settings of the world of the Bible with the biblical text. In our study tours, the biblical lands become your classroom as you experience the Bible where it happened and engage in reading and studying the Bible through the lenses of its world on-site. Our programs are not the typical “tourist” tours where “seeing the sites” serves as the primary goal. We use the land and its sites as a doorway to step into the world of the Bible combining biblical teaching, interactive and integrative learning, spiritual encounter, engaging adventure, and the forming of lifelong connections that provide an unparalleled travel experience. Our study tours offer an opportunity for participants to encounter the Bible and experience their faith like never before.
Biblical Expeditions offers:
- Integrative Learning—we utilize our four-dimensional approach—spatial, historical, cultural, and spiritual—and assist participants in learning and engaging the Bible through these four lenses.
- Biblical Knowledge—our programs offer the highest quality of biblical learning and education in the lands of the Bible in the fields of biblical history, historical geography, archaeology, biblical and other ancient literature.
- Inland Relationships—we partner with world-renowned scholars and institutions in the fields of archaeology, ancient Israel, Dead Sea Scrolls, ancient Judaism and early Christianity, as well as, top level guides and inland agencies to provide an unequaled travel experience.
- Tour Experiences—our study tours reflect over 20 years of experience in guiding groups in the lands of the Bible. We visit key biblical sites, as well as sites, places not seen of most tours of the lands of the Bible. We uniquely utilize the land and sites to enable participants to engage the Scriptures anew-and-afresh and encounter their faith.
- Tour Variety—we provide a variety of customized on-site learning experiences in the lands of the Bible to meet the spiritual and intellectual needs of a wide variety of people. We offer private and individual tours, programs for churches, ministers and leaders tours, university students and educators, and adventure tours.
