The Institute is committed to an integration of classroom instruction in the Bible and personal exploration of the lands of the Bible. Past Bible Lands Seminars have toured Egypt, the Sinai, Jordan and Israel (ocassionally Turkey, Greece and Italy). Currently, the BLS is in a two week configuration in Israel. By standing at the crossroads and walking the ancient paths (Jeremiah 6:16), students are impacted by the reality of the Lord of glory moving in space and time. They are given the opportunity to appreciate God’s activity in history and challenged to lay hold of the prophetic significance of the signs of the times which anticipate the return of Christ.
March 2 is the departure date for the 31 travlers on the 2016 BLS in Israel. Vice President Wesley Ross and Pastor Mike Tuttle, Directory of Student LIfe, will lead the group for 14 days. Highlights will include exploration of Lower and Upper Galilee, the Golan, the coastal plan, the Negev and Dead Sea region, biblical Samaria, and Jerusalem and Bethlehem. They will visit all the major bibilical sites in Israel using the Regional Touring concept pioneered by Iternational Group Ministries, BICS' tour agent for 28 years.
We gladly take guest travelers. If you would like to know more about the 2017 BLS, call the BICS Office (413-637-4673) or send us an email.
