Dear Christian partners:
As the director of the International Students Program of Bethlehem Bible College, I am writing to introduce you to our program.
We offer a unique opportunity for students to study in the land of the Bible, in an accredited program of academic excellence, linking the ancient history of the Bible and Christianity to the present. In a relevant context, with the experience of on site field trips and interaction with Palestinian Christians, students gain deeper insight into the Scriptures and their understanding of the Middle East.
Topics include the following:
In the Footsteps of Jesus
Introduction to Palestinian Christian Theology
Introduction to Islam, Judaism, Messianic Jews
The Israeli – Palestinian Conflict
Theology of the Land
Zionism and its Alternatives
A Christian Response to Radical Islam
Reading the Old Testament in Palestine
Pastoring in Palestine
Pathways to Reconciliation
Peace, Justice and Non-violence in the Palestinian Context
We offer one track for groups of students and one for individuals. Track A, three credits, is available upon request for groups and includes up to fourteen lectures and six field trips during two to three weeks. Track B, twelve to fifteen credits, is a fall semester course for interested individuals. Students may also audit the course. Visitors to the Holy Land may also participate in non credited lectures and field trips. Instruction for all of the above options is in English.
Please contact us for further details at firstname.lastname@example.org. Course descriptions and application forms are available at our website: http://www.bethbc.org/academics/international-students
We are accepting applications for our fall semester so please make this information available to anyone who would benefit from studying with us at Bethlehem Bible College and forward at your discretion. If you prefer, we would be pleased to arrange a group program. I look forward to hearing from you.
