Land Matters: Geography and the Bible

Come join me in Houston on August 19 from 9am-3:30pm at St. Paul’s Houston. I fully expect to receive snarky (yet appreciative?) comments from my former students who got to do all those map quizzes and repeat regularly: “All geography is theology.”

Understanding the geography of the Bible has a direct impact on interpreting its meaning. Once you start thinking about it, all kinds of questions spring to mind:

  • Why are the disciples known as Galileans?
  • Where is the Decapolis, and why does it matter that Jesus ministers there?
  • Why highlight that the woman at the well is from Samaria?
  • How does ancient Joppa intersect with modern Joppa, and why should contemporary Christians care?

Join us for this course as we dig into these land questions!

Online registration will be available June 1 through August 14, 2017.
