the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary


Few places in the world are as spectacular as the Holy Land. The nations of Israel and Jordan are major focal points in the Biblical narrative. Its history stretches from the time of Abraham to the time of our Lord Jesus. Being able to walk where Jesus walked and see what he saw is a life-changing experience, and I want to personally invite you to the Southern Seminary Expedition to Israel and Jordan.

Southern Seminary Expeditions offer on-site lectures from experts in biblical, theological and historical studies. We will travel to historical sites such as Petra, Masada, and King Herod’s tomb. We will stand on the steps of the temple mount where Jesus would have stood and taught. We will study the Scriptures on the Sea of Galilee and in the Garden of Gethsemane. While on the trip, you will also learn about the culture of the Middle East and be introduced to gospel-centered ministries there. It is our prayer that this Expedition will further equip you for ministry and continue to cultivate in you a heart and mind for Christ.
