Oh, Jerusalem, by Greg Olson,
My daughter has been accepted to participate in a study abroad program in Jerusalem this summer. She will get college credit for the classes she takes there. She will be taking Old Testament, New Testament, Ancient Near Eastern Studies, Modern Near Eastern studies focusing on Judaism, and Modern Near Eastern Studies focusing on Islam.
As part of her school term there, she will participate in many educational tours. Here is a list of some of the places she will visit:
Negev, Tel Beersheba, Zin Overlook, Avdat, Cairo, Taba, Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Saggara, Memphis, Luxor, West bank of the Nile, including Valley of the Kings and Funerary temple of Ramses III, Citadel.
Mt Nebo, Madaba, Macherus, Petra, Amman,
--Jerusalem to Galilee
Sea of Galilee, Nof Ginnosar, Tabgha, Mt. Tabor, Nain, Ban Ha-Shelosha, Bet Shean, Gamla, Qazrin, Mediterranean field trip, Akko, Templar Cemetary, Caesearea, Bethlehem and Shepherd's field,
--Last Week WalkBethany, Bethphage, Pater Noster, Dominus Flevit, Gethsemane, Cenaculum, St. Peter in Galicantu, Garden Tomb
She has a really busy summer ahead of her, but in my opinion, it is really a choice opportunity to get this kind of education.
