Winter Trip to ISRAEL . . .

March 4, 2010

Several of the NHF brothers & sisters can now attest to the magic that is Dr. Bryan Widbin, Professor of Old Testament & Semitic Languages at Alliance Theological Seminary.  In addition to being a dynamic & faith-building lecturer and a virtual genius in all things related to the Middle East, Dr. Widbin is also a widely sought-after licensed guide with the state of Israel, a former resident of Israel, and former student with the Israeli Army.  He is fluent in the various languages & cultures of the Middle East.

Every winter, Dr. Widbin leads an extended study-tour of Israel.  But every two winters, he offers a special Biennial Study Trip which includes a couple of days spent in the desert with Bedouin nomads.   Over 11 days, Dr. Widbin will lead a group of graduate-students  & others on a chronological journey through the Bible, including:

  •  on-site instruction throughout Israel’s cities, deserts, mountains & valleys
  • course-materials (maps, charts, etc.)
  • hikes, swims & camel treks
  • special cultural events (hafla, interviews with resident Israelis, Palestinians & Bedouins, etc.)
  • daily evening recap-sessions

Special video: hear Dr. Widbin read Psalm 88 in the cell where Jesus was held before He was sentenced & crucified . . .
