You’ll never read
Scripture the same again!
For more than 30 years, CTU Bible faculty have lead Biblical Study and Travel Programs. This year’s program will be guided by Sr. Laurie Brink, O.P., Associate Professor of New Testament Studies. The program has two parts: a pre-trip online seminar, and a three-week travel seminar.
When booking flights, plan to arrive in Tel Aviv by 6 p.m. April 30 in order to take the group shuttle to the hotel. Return flights are out of Athens.
Please share this with your parish, friends, or organiation! Please click here for a flyer for the program.
