Dr. Jud Davis, assistant professor of biblical studies who is helping plan the fast-paced trip, said there will be much to experience for the first-time visitor and for those who have been to the Holy Land before.

“In just over a week we will see Old Testament sites such as Mt. Carmel where Elijah faced the prophets of Baal, and a Bedouin village that pictures the life of the Patriarchs,” Dr. Davis said. “We will visit Nazareth, the Dead Sea, and Jerusalem to see many of the places where Jesus lived or visited. I believe this trip will bring to life many of the Bible stories we learned as children and give deeper insights to the truths of God’s Word.”

Dates for the trip are May 26 to June 9, at an estimated cost of $3,600 per person. The cost, which includes air fare, meals, entrance fees, tour guides, tips, taxes, and lodging, could change depending on the number in the group and the cost of airfare.

To reserve a spot, contact Janice Pendergrass in the Advancement office by email or phone at 423.775.7202. A $500 non-refundable deposit will reserve your space on the trip. An additional payment of $1,300 will be due Nov. 15, 2012, and the balance will be due Jan. 15, 2013.
