Tel Aviv, Nazareth, Magdala, Tiberias, Jericho, Bethlehem, City of David, Jerusalem, Israel
Explore the complex historical and theological question of the relationship between Christianity and Judaism and the role the land has played in the intersection of these two faiths. Particularly, the class will ask how the Jesus movement offered an alternative vision to other competing visions on what it means to be the people of God living in a Promised Land occupied by a foreign power. Acquire first-hand information and experiential learning through travel to several sites in Israel and Palestine, including Jerusalem, Mount of Olives, Bethlehem, Caesarea-by-the-Sea, Tel Megiddo, Nazareth Village, the Sea of Galilee, Masada, Qumran, and many others. This course meets the Religion General Education requirement. The required travel component of this course provides essential first-hand information and experiential learning opportunities for students.
