Wheaton in the Holy Lands is a six week study of the Old Testament, New Testament through travel to Israel, Greece, Turkey, and Rome (May 16-June 27). In addition, through contact with leaders of non-western churches, Wheaton in the Holy Lands engages students with issues of the theological development of the Church from its earliest period to its present witness. This program can be taken as a partial alternative to the general education requirements in the Biblical Studies, Theological Studies, or Archaeology major.
In 2015, the trip will be led by Dr. Chris A. Vlachos (New Testament) and Dr. Sandra Richter (Old Testament). Dr. Richter will share her expertise in the pre-exilic history and culture of Israel from the perspective of many years of leading tours and directing archaeological teams. Dr. Vlachos, drawing on his years of teaching and pastoral experience, will share academic and practical insights as we visit locations where the New Testament events occurred. Accompanying Drs. Vlachos and Richter will be Dr. Steven Tsoukalas (Theology), who will provide theological and apologetics-related commentary and share from his expertise in world religions and heresies.
