On-Line Teaching via Zoom!
We are very excited to offer on-line teaching about Israel. It is our way of bringing Israel to you! It is our deep desire to teach the Bible within the context of the land where it all took place. This is why this on-line teaching format has been developed! And we are so glad to have you join us as students of the Bible!
For so many people, their dream to travel to Israel will never happen due to financial circumstances and/or health issues. This is our way to bring Israel to you! For others, there is so much about the Bible that isn’t understood because of not being familiar of the physical settings of the Bible. This is our way to teach the land (e.g. “playing board“) of the Bible and to help bring more understanding of the land for you!
Below is a listing of all our on-line learning seminars/courses for you. We invite you to join us as we teach about the Bible. These exciting classes will include the best of our pictures, drone videos of biblical sites and regions, and rock-solid teaching about the land of Israel. Ultimately, we hope God uses this platform to excite people about God’s Word and to encourage people in their walk of faith with Jesus!
At present, two seminars/courses are offered:
1. “Biblical Israel: Learning the ‘Playing Board’ of the Bible.” This is a multi-session course (8 sessions). This course is in progress.
2. “Israel Trip Preparation Seminar (This is a 2 session seminar specifically to help each of our tour groups prepare for their Israel trip).
Course: “Biblical Israel: Learning the ‘Playing Board’ of the Bible”
This is a multi-session (8) class that teaches the Bible in context. We will use the study of historical geography, biblical archaeology, customs & culture of the Bible, and the Hebraic background of Jesus. This course will conclude with bringing to life various stories from the Bible where they actually took place. The class will take place every 3 weeks or so. Be sure to keep track of the schedule (below). If you miss a class, a recorded version of the presentation will be made available on this web page. Again, through Zoom, you will have to register for each session of this class! It’s free!

The course will be taught by Dr. John DeLancey, Director of BIMT. He is a former one-year archaeology and historical geography student at JUC (in Jerusalem, from 1981-82), and has led 70 Israel trips to date. He also travels extensively to churches and schools, teaching our Bringing the Bible to Life seminar.
Watch an amazing time-lapsed video of the sunrise over the Sea of Galilee. The sun rises over the Golan Heights to the east.
Jesus would have seen sunrises like this. In fact, He was the One who created them! 🙂 Praise God for the beauty of His creation!
