Land of the Bible Short-Term Courses for 2017

     JCBT provides specialized short-term study programs under the auspices of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Each course is customized to meet the needs of consultants and consultants-in-training in studying and experiencing Biblical history, geography, archaeology, agriculture, flora/fauna, and local climate — in order to provide a fuller and more accurate understanding of Hebrew Scripture.

     Since the beginning of this program in 2010, most of the 270 participants come from major Bible translation societies. The increased interest in this course continues as can be seen in having 96 participants in 2016, and 60 already in the first two months of 2017.
