Wheaton in the Holy Lands is a study of the Old Testament, New testament and early Church through classroom lecture and travel to Israel, Greece, Turkey, and Rome. 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 through the centuries. This program can be taken as a partial alternative to the general education requirements in the Biblical Studies, Theological Studies, or Archaeology major.
This year the trip will be led by Dr. Nicholas Perrin (New Testament) and by Dr. Jennifer McNutt (Theology). Dr. McNutt will help you explore a variety of Christian Traditions and see how they relate to the development of early Christianity. At the same time, Dr. Perrin will share his knowledge of the New Testament in its cultural and historical environment as we visit places where the Bible was written and heard for the first time.
