“Bringing the Bible to Life” (BBL) Seminar

Physical Settings of the Bible PosterA BBL seminar is all about teaching the Bible in the context of the land of Israel. We like to refer to the land of the Israel as the playing board of the Bible. Each BBL seminar teaches this playing board through the physical settings of the Bible, biblical archaeology, historical geography, the hebraic background of the life and ministry of Jesus, and the customs and culture of the Bible.

Each BBL seminar is free to the public! Dr. John DeLancey, Director of BIMT, is the presenter for the seminar.   The BBL seminar is about 7 hours long and uses multi-media (PowerPoint, videos, aerial/drone footage, etc…)
