Experience Israel - BACK TO THE ROOTS

Are you passionate about knowing the Bible and the foundation of your Faith? Are you curious about why Christians have been so interested in Israel and the Jewish People? Do you long for spending more time with God? Do you want to study the Bible in its original context? And are you interested in sharing the Gospel and serving others?

Then this is the opportunity you have been looking for.



Experience Israel is an 8-week bible course arranged by Norwegian Church Ministry and YWAM Rogaland to Israel and several international partners. During the program you will experience teachings related to the Bible, its context and much more. The teaching will be conducted by some of the greatest intellectual capacities within the relevant topics. In addition, you will be a part of a spiritual community, have individual mentoring, meeting new cultures, meeting inspirational personalities and get to learn more about Israel through history and to the present.

Part One: Jerusalem

The first part will take place in Jerusalem at The Caspari Center for Biblical and Jewish Studies. The city will be our classroom and we will travel to several important sites on excursions that will give us insight to the excavations of the sites and how it has enlightened our understanding of the Bible and translations of biblical manuscript. Further we will meet local believers, meeting locals and attend congregations.

Part Two: Galilee

The last 4 weeks has a more practical approach. We will live in Nazareth, the hometown of Jesus (Yeshua). Here we will serve the local community thru Nazareth Trust. We will help Nazareth Village to bring alive the society as it may have appeared when Jesus wandered around in the area. Later we will walk in Jesus’ footstep by hiking the Jesus-trail from Nazareth to Capernaum, before we head back to Jerusalem for a week of debrief and sharing our personal experience from the last two months.

All teachings will be given in English.
