Please note that this tour is full; Information is provided as a resource.
Dr. Rick Hess will be leading a study tour of Syria and Cyprus during the intersession, January 13-27, 2008. We will visit the major ancient sites and cities of these lands and grow in our understanding of their impact on the Bible.
We will see Damascus where Paul first came to terms with his Christian faith, Ugarit with its impact on our understanding of the Psalms, Ebla and Mari and the background of Abraham and Genesis, and the cities of Cyprus that have had an impact on the Bible from the time of early Israel and the Philistines to the visit of Paul. We will experience modern rural and urban cultures in each of these great countries, and we will meet and speak with Christian leaders.
