A Brand New On-line Course about Biblical Israel
I am delighted to introduce to you a brand new on-line learning opportunity in partnership with Biblical Israel Ministries & Tours. Early this month we launched The Institute of Biblical Israel. The link to The Institute can be found HERE.
What is so exciting about this platform is that people can learn about Israel from the comfort of their home with high-level education. Of course, nothing can beat going on a trip with us, but The Institute is designed to bring biblical Israel to you! Below you can watch a 6 minute preview of the first course, Physical Settings of the Bible.
This first course is designed to have you take the classes at your leisure, whenever you want. There are no deadlines or time-schedules to complete any of the classes. You simply engage in these video lectures at your own pace! As you walk through each class, I will be always available for any questions or comments you may want to share. I will also be setting up occasional Zoom “Q & A” sessions along the way.
The course has a total of 14 lessons, or about 7.5 hours of teaching. Here are the details:
A. 7 individual lecture sessions totaling about 3.8 hours of teaching. The sessions are as follows: Introduction (22 minutes) Regions of the Land 1 (43 minutes) Regions of the Land 2 (25 minutes) Regions of the Land 3 (27 minutes) Routes & Ancient Cities 1 (45 minutes) Routes & Ancient Cities 2 (29 minutes) Routes, Ancient Cities & Water (42 minutes)
B. 7 Map-Marking sessions totaling 3.7 hours of teaching. We will be using the Regions on the Run & Map Set from Biblical Backgrounds. Ideally, you will need to purchase your own set of 7 maps if you want to mark your own maps. Other than being in the land on an Israel study tour, this is the very best way to learn the land. The maps can be purchased alone for $21.00 at biblicalbackgrounds.com. If you want the set of maps & the Regions on the Run booklet, the price is $48.00. You also can simply follow Dr. John’s own map-marking if you decide not to purchase the map set or cannot obtain them for some reason. You will greatly benefit from this as well.
By the way, the creator of Biblical Backgrounds is Jim Monson, a former professor of historical geography in Jerusalem. He was my all-time favorite Bible teacher for my year of study at the Jerusalem University College in Israel (formerly The Institute of Holyland Studies)! These 7 sessions are as follows: Map Marking 1 (38 minutes) Map Marking 2 (31 minutes) Map Marking 3 (33 minutes) Map Marking 4 (25 minutes) Map Marking 5 (38 minutes) Map Marking 6 (39 minutes) Map Marking 7 (28 minutes).

“I enjoyed the preview and purchased the course. I already started with the first few sessions. You are a great teacher, explaining the uniqueness of the geography of the land of Israel. Blessings and thanks!” – Ryan
The cost of a college-seminary level course like this is hundred’s of dollars. Yet the cost of this course has been discounted from $159.00 to just $89.00. I want this teaching to be available to as many people as possible around the world! As an extra bonus/savings, an additional $40.00 discount applies (reducing the cost to only $49.00) for anyone who has either traveled with me to Israel before OR for anyone signed up for a future trip with me. If you have been to Israel already, this course will help you dig deeper into the layout of the land. If you are signed up for a future tour, then this course will be a great way of preparing for the trip! An additional discount applies for pastors and those in full-time ministry, bringing the price down to $25.00. I simply want to bless you with solid Bible teaching as it relates to the land of Israel that will enhance your own ministry to your church!
To request the discount coupon(s), simply email me at DrJohn@biblicalisraeltours.com. You will use the coupon in the check-out process. :). The course can be paid for by credit card (secure through Stripe) or by PayPal. All funds are in US dollars.
CONNECTING THE DOTS
Most of the biblical stories we read about took place somewhere on the land, whether we talking about Abraham, Joshua, David, or Jesus! We will also study the topography in such a way that you’ll become familiar with the natural routes and passes within the land. We will also introduce some of the Biblical cities that were positioned on these routes for strategic purposes. You are going to have fun as you “connect the dots” between the land and the Bible! I look forward to having you sign up for this course!
Once again, go HERE to access The Institute and sign up for this first course!
As your instructor, I welcome the opportunity to serve you through this teaching!
