The Bible remains the best-selling book of all time; a source of inspiration, devotion and history. But how does it stack up against the archaeological record? This course uncovers the rich history of Israel and the ancient Near East from settlement in Canaan to the conquest of Jerusalem by the Babylonians, with a fascinating mix of lectures and field trips.

The course is taught by some of the preeminent scholars in the field and includes a variety of trips to various archaeological sites throughout Israel.
At the conclusion of the program, students are invited to continue their studies in the Modern Hebrew Ulpan.

The winter Ulpan runs next year from January 24 – February 19,  2018 

Costs for 2017 were $1,350 tuition and $580 for housing
