The land of Israel is not large geographically, but in salvation history it is massive. From apostles’ boats in Galilee to Solomon’s ships in Aqaba, from Goliath’s Philistine plain to Jesus’ Calvary mount, the biggest events of human history happened in Israel. Jordan is Israel’s Eastern neighbor. From a path to the land of promise to a hill where Moses looked, from a baptism in a river to powerful preaching in Perea, so much of significance happened in Jordan.
With departure on January 4 and our return on January 17, 2025, Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary offers an opportunity for students, pastors, and other interested brothers and sisters in Christ to explore with intensity locations from the north to the south, from the west to the east.
