197 The Geography of the Bible
In preparation for the NYSB trip to Israel, this class will discuss the different regions of the Land of Israel and how each relate to the Biblical text. The Promised Land has been described as the testing ground of faith for the people of God. The flora, fauna, and weather cycle will help to illustrate this as well as the uniqueness of each region of the Land. Lectures will be on the regions of Galilee, the Jordan Rift Valley, the Hill Countries of Ephraim and Manasseh and Judah, the Shephelah, the Land of Benjamin, the Coastal Plain, and the Negev.
