Walking The Text Study Trips in the lands of Israel and Turkey aren’t just trips or tours to Bible Lands — they are experiences that usher you into the biblical story and invite you to literally walk in the footsteps of Abraham, Moses, Deborah, David, Elijah, Jesus, Peter, Paul, and other biblical people God invited to play a role in His unfolding story of human history.
It’s the chance of a lifetime to see the Bible unleashed in ways you’ve never dreamt possible. The Text will literally leap off the pages as we hike the land and the historical biblical sites, studying the stories in the places they happened, and engaging the world of the Bible in its native context. Never again will you read the Bible the same way.
A distinctive part of these trips is that you won’t receive a detailed itinerary. Why? Because how you encounter something shapes the experience and the learning. If you have an idea of what’s next, it isn’t as impactful. But don’t worry, we will visit all of the major sites during the course of the trip. And please trust me on this. After having led more than 25 trips, participants enthusiastically agree that this is the best way to experience these trips.
In life, we don’t know what tomorrow will bring; we’re called to take each moment one step at a time. And so we walk, seeking to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. For as the Text states in 1 John 2:6, “Anyone who claims to follow Christ, must walk as Jesus walked.” Thus, you’ll simply be invited to enjoy the journey and receive each site and experience as a gift. You will be challenged physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It’ll be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before, and you won’t come back the same.
For you, this experience could change everything! Are you ready to walk?
